IPD Garage Sale 2024

2024-03-06

Event Info

The time has finally come where we are ready to host one of the largest Volvo enthusiast events in the country.  IPD’s Garage Sale is known for having some of the most unique Volvos on display.  IPD has not only created one of the best Volvo cars shows in the country, we’ve turned it into one of the best charity events around.  IPD has an incredible relationship with a local non-profit providing  a place where children and teenagers with type 1 diabetes from all over the Pacific Northwest have a blast while connecting with other kids living with the same challenges. For many years this Volvo community has raised thousands of dollars supporting local non-profits. IPD is excited to help support Gales Creek Camp by spreading awareness to our amazing community. IPD and Gales Creek Camp can’t wait to see you on May 18th.  Please visit this blog as IPD will be adding more details leading up to the event.  Thank you for your support! 

Our annual Garage Sale has become such a fixture in the Volvo community that we have people asking about it months in advance. We’ve heard this event described as one of the largest Volvo gathering on the West Coast and it’s hard to argue. It’s massive and we look forward to this event each year.

As usual, we have some great events planned this year so mark your calendar for Saturday May 18th, 2024, and join us and other Volvo enthusiasts for prizes, car show, raffle drawings, ipd Plinko, swap meet deals, Show'n Shine and sales event. We guarantee that you will see some awe-inspiring cars, meet some like-minded Volvo lovers and have a great time while supporting an incredible non-profit located right here in our community. 

We hope to see you here for this great event.

When: Saturday May 18th, 2024 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

Where: 11744 NE Ainsworth Cir. Portland, Oregon 97220

Main Sponsor

BOSCH is one of the most recognizable names in the automotive industry.  IPD is extremely grateful to have such an incredible relationship with BOSCH North America. BOSCH representatives have attended the IPD Garage Sale for more than a decade supporting charities found in Portland Oregon. This year BOSCH has stepped up by partnering with us supporting another great charity in our community. Thank you, BOSCH, for sponsoring the 2024 IPD Garage Sale event.

Car Show Main Lot and Show N' Shine

Main Lot- The main lot car entries range from custom builds to low-mile, well-maintained beauties for everyone to appreciate.  We do our best to showcase many different models in the main lot.  If your car does not make it into the main lot, we invite everyone to come join us and display their Volvo in the Show N’ Shine area.  This is an extremely popular area for enthusiasts to hang out. A $5.00 donation is requested to park in the Show N' Shine area.  All proceeds go to Gales Creek Camp Foundation. The Show N' Shine is "first come first park" be early if you plan to attend.  We look forward to seeing you here.   

If you would like your car to be featured in the main lot, please send an email along with a photo of your car to Mcaldwell@ipdusa.com   

Show N' Shine Parking: CALLING ALL VOLVOS!  If your car is not featured in the main parking lot, that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be seen! Cars in the Show N' Shine will be across the street from IPD in the parking lot of MESD. For a $5.00 donation you can park your Volvo along with other enthusiasts, making it easy for everyone to browse their favorite models. Cars parked in the Show N' Shine area are on a first come first served basis! You can enter the Show N' Shine area beginning at 8:00am. All proceeds raised from the Show N' Shine will be donated to Gales Creek Camp Foundation in Gales Creek,Oregon. We can't wait to see your ride!

Swap Meet

Swap Meet: If you have parts laying around that you don't need anymore, reserve a swap meet spot and sell them during the event. Each spot is $30 and includes two standard parking spaces in the swap meet area lot next to the Show N' Shine. To reserve a spot in the swap-meet portion of the event call 800-444-6473.  All Swap Meet attendees are responsible for cleaning up and removing all items.  IPD gets the pleasure of using MESD's parking lot for the event.  Please be respectful and clean your area of all items before you leave.  Thank you!
