Town-Wide Yard Sale
In mid-May each year, the town of Germantown holds a town-wide yard sale. For a small fee, participants can get their name and location on a map that is made available to all shoppers.
Memorial Day Parade
Each Memorial Day the Town of Germantown hosts a parade down Main Street to Palatine Park to honor the men and women who died while serving our country. The Germantown Central School marching band participates as do youth sports teams, Boy and Girl Scouts, many local civic organizations and businesses, Town officials, and the fire and police departments — plus spectators enjoy horse drawn wagons and equestrians. A picnic for families and participants follows at Palatine Park.
