Montebello Garage Yard Sale Weekend

Four times a year people from all around Los Angeles County converge on Montebello for "Yard Sale Weekend".

The city hosts four permit-free weekends a year when residents can have yard sales. On these designated weekends there is practically a yard sale on every block. It's a win-win for both buyers and sellers.

Yard sale weekends are always the first full weekend (Friday-Sunday) in March, June, September, and December. Saturdays are most popular but there are many sales on Friday and Sunday too!

Frequently Asked Questions:
Which streets are the yard sales held?
Yard sales are held on pretty much every block of the entire city.
What part of Montebello should I start shopping?
The sale is held throughout the city, start at whichever streets are closest to you.
Are there a lot of sales on Friday or Sunday?
Compared with Saturday, there are significantly fewer sales on Friday & Sunday. I estimate about one-fourth of the sales are 2-day sales that extend to Friday or Sunday.
It says here that the yard sale weekend is next weekend, but there are people having yard sales this weekend, which is it?
Many people get confused and believe yard sale weekend is the first Saturday of the month, but they are incorrect. The official weekends are the first Friday through Sunday weekend that occurs within the selected months. If a yard sale is held at a time outside of the official yard sale weekend a city issued permit is required.


  1. From what time to what time?

    1. Hi Karla. Official time states, 9am, but early birds usually set up sooner. I've seen families set up as early at 7am, and as late as the evening hours.

  2. I live in apartments with no grassy front yard. Where can i set up my things?
