Used Car Lot Sale

Every Sunday , the Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions hold a used car sale event on the front car lot at the Tsawwassen Town Centre, whereby folks that want to sell their used cars pay a weekly registration fee of $15 to be allowed to park on this space. This event is very well known throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, and is even recommended by dealers as a good place to find a wide selection of used vehicles.


FEBRUARY 17, 2019


- Registration begins at 8 am and continues until 3 pm. Be sure to get there early as the 60 spaces are frequently sold out early in the day.

- Registration papers must be presented upon arrival, prior to paying fee.

- No vehicles that would take up more than one space, please (ie; large boats / motor homes / 5th wheels)
