Let The Sales Begin!

It’s Chagrin Falls Community Garage Sale weekend, and this year’s is bigger and better than ever. The Chagrin Valley Jaycees have jumped in and hosted a Food Truck Festival downtown at Triangle Park for the whole day so you can grab lunch while you shop.

Here’s the map and address list.

September 25th in the Falls

September 25th is shaping up to be a busy day in our little village.

This year’s Chagrin Falls Community Garage Sale has almost 50 households already registered in and around the downtown Chagrin Falls area. The concept behind this day is simple – you can have a garage sale without paying a fee, and benefit from the advertising placed by many for the group garage sales in Chagrin Falls.

Each year, we post an online map and create printed maps of participating addresses to help our garage sale shoppers find all the sales. (We also list children’s lemonade stands, as it is a popular day for the kids to demonstrate their own entrepreneurial spirit!)

This year, there are several other events happening in concert with the garage sales – the Chagrin Valley Jaycees are hosting Food Trucks in the Falls, the RePlay Riverside Playground Committee is hosting a public art event in Riverside Park called “Breathe With Me”, and Chagrin Falls Historical Society is hosting their annual Spirits Alive spooky graveyard tours.

Come out to the Falls, and enjoy this fun-filled day!

Shop The Original

Home to over 75 independent shops and restaurants, the tree-lined village center of Chagrin Falls has been delivering Main Street charm for over 100 years.  In these times when we all try to “shop local”, why settle for an imitation lifestyle center? Discover the authentic experience they all try to replicate with a trip to Chagrin Falls.  

Chagrin Falls Annual Sidewalk Sale starts on Thursday July 29 and runs through Saturday, August 1.  This event has served as a local shopping destination for over 70 years.  This year’s Sidewalk Sale will feature free transportation around town on the Rocket Car Friday and Saturday, as well as free music and children’s entertainment.   

During your visit, check out the quickly developing food scene.   Have you experienced Yours Truly’s rooftop deck?  The Brazilian Batuqui Chagrin Falls is the latest hotspot with a beautiful patio out front ( and plenty of parking in back!)  PubFrato, pub-style food, in the old Raintree space and Etalian, Naples-style individual pizzas from chef Eddie Tancredi, in Bell Street Park along the upper waterfall both open this summer.  17 River offers a beautiful view of the natural waterfall from its multi-level decks.  Chef Art Pour has announced the opening of a sushi restaurant in town as well.  

It’s been a long time since Taggarts Toys left Main Street, and everyone was excited to see a branch of AppleJax Toys (also in Lakewood) open two weeks ago. And although new spaces are always interesting,  some of the most popular local retail has been in business for decades.  Chagrin Hardware is a treasure trove, and The Popcorn Shop is still serving popcorn and ice cream to legions of visitors every day.   

If you haven’t experienced Chagrin Falls, this summer is the perfect time to discover this authentic village.
