no power to garage

Will a non GFI outlet stop power to an area? I bumped a night light plugged into the garage outlet, it flickered and then all power to gargage went out. Circuit breaker did not trip

Just bumping it should not cut off the power.

More likely a wire came off, especially if they are back stabbed. If you feel able, turn off the power and remove the outlet. Check for loose wires.

If you aren't sure you have the power off, don't do anything without getting a tester OR even better an electrician.

If it's not a loose wore as mentioned above, then check to see if you have a separate sub panel just for the garage. Depending on how old your house is it might have its own small fuse box dedicated just for the garage area.
