San Diego's largest rummage sale, started in 1927, will be held March 12 and 13, 2016, in the Activity Center (2145 Park Blvd., east side of Balboa Park) in Balboa Park.  New and gently-used merchandise, including jewelry, art/frames, antiques, collectibles, furniture, sporting equipment, holiday and home décor, kitchenware and small appliances, toys, electronics, books and clothing will be sold to raise money for Balboa Park and community non-profits.

The Thursday Club, a group of volunteers dedicated to educational, cultural and civic community involvement and leadership for more than 90 years in San Diego, has returned almost $2 million to Balboa Park and the community through club activities.

Each year half of the proceeds of the sale go to benefit a variety of programs and projects within Balboa Park and half goes to support non-profit organizations in the San Diego community.
