Hundreds of local individuals, businesses, and groups are expected to participate this year, setting up yard sales and craft booths on their properties along the highway. This unique event allows visitors from Kentucky and surrounding states to enjoy an exciting shopping experience, while taking in the distinctive flavor of the Ohio Valley’s unique restaurants, shops, and southern hospitality. The sale will also provide an excellent opportunity for local organizations and clubs to hold fund-raising events.

Property owners located along US Highway 60 may participate in the event by either holding a yard sale or offering the use of their property to yard sale participants. Property owners who offer the use of their property may decide whether to charge a fee for that use, as well as the hours and days they will participate. Any property owner wishing to rent their property for use during the sale can contact the Henderson County Tourist Commission at 270-826-3128 to be added to our property list. You do not need to register or call if you are having a sale on your own property.
