It is with much thought and great sadness that we have decided to not hold the Waunakee Garage Sale Days this fall and look instead to the Spring of 2021.
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, and in consultation with many participants, businesses, and state and local officials we have determined that the obstacles (shopper and community safety, concerns regarding the timing being close to the start of the school year, the size of our event, guidance from DHS on recommendations to cancel all city-wide events such as garage sales, the new mandates for Dane county and the struggles many of our local business have in this environment such as capacity requirements, lobby closures etc. which make this event not a win for them) are insurmountable. It is our goal with this event to have a positive impact on our community and local businesses. This year, in September, with what is currently known, the event doesn’t seem to be able to meet that criteria.
Our support of the Waunakee community, its members and small businesses, is a driving force behind why we coordinate this event. We are grateful for this great community and look forward to an awesome event Mother’s Day Weekend in the Spring of 2021
We appreciate your support, patience and understanding as we navigate these unique times together.
It will be a team effort by both sellers, shoppers, and vendors, and we are asking everyone to do their part to help protect the members of our communities.
We are asking each neighborhood association to post this message and help us get the word out. We strongly encourage people to not hold garage sales in September to help reduce potential community spread. As neighborhoods and individuals we must work together to help keep our community both safe and vibrant.
