It was 30 years ago this September that St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Cobble Hill held its first modest yard sale to celebrate fall.

This Sept. 19 you can see just how much the annual event has grown as the church hosts the St. John’s September Festival from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

“From the mists of time there are memories of delicious dinners with entertainment one evening followed by a yard sale the next day,” reads a notice of the event. “Over the years those fledgling yard sales have grown into a Mega Yard Sale, the dinners have changed to Divine Desserts, hamburgers and other tasty foods.”

The sale also boasts a country store, clothing, books, jewelry, silent auction, and children’s activities. The festival is setting up an active zero waste program this year as well.

Some of the proceeds go to support local, national and international charities.

The church is located at 3295 Cobble Hill Rd.
