Every spring, the Fallingbrook Community Association organizes a community-wide garage sale. On that day, any family wishing to participate simply holds their own garage sale. The advantage is that we do the advertising, and there are many participants. People come from far away in order to shop at our garage sale.

The weather for the Fallingbrook garage sale in 2012 was spectacular. There were traffic jams on some streets with people looking for bargains. Our new approach, of announcing the date on the Wednesday before the sale, guaranteed good weather. Ironically, just about every Saturday in May has been good.
The Fallingbrook Community Association recognized the outstanding contributions of our residents at our Volunteer Awards Evening, Saturday June 27, at the Ray Friel Centre on Tenth Line Road. See photos here. This year's recipients are:
