Garage Sale

The Cannon Falls VFW Auxiliary hosts an annual garage sale during the Cannon Falls City-Wide garage sale.  We accept donated items the weekend before the sale.  We do not accept appliances, TV’s, computers, printers, or anything in non-working condition.


Our goal is to raise money for our community programs.

The VFW is a drop-off point for Toys For Tots each year.

Thursday Fun Fest

The VFW and Auxiliary share a booth at each Cannon Falls Chamber of Commerce Fun Fest.  The fest is held the second Thursday of each month during the summer beginning at 5:00.

Each year the VFW donates thousands of dollars to our community and surrounding area.  During fiscal year April 2017-March 2018 we contributed over $38,000 to the area.  Your support and patronage allows us to give back to our community in a BIG way.  Thank you so much!!
