Yes. It varies for each city. In Pasco, you MUST get a permit to have such an event. And, sales are limited to two per year, and cannot run for more than two consecutive days.

In Kennewick, a permit is NOT required, however you must adhere to some rules.

The sale must not run longer than 5 consecutive days, and 2 sales per household is allowed.

For the city of Richland, a permit is NOT required, and you can host several sales a year.

As for residents of West Richland, a permit is NOT required and there's no limit to how many sales a resident is allowed.

Lots of folks get together and host community yard sales at one person's residence. This may be a way to get around particular rules in your neighborhood.
