The World’s Longest Yard Sale is THIS WEEKEND!

By Zach Hester, Reporter •

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. — The World’s Longest Yard Sale will make its way back to DeKalb County next Thursday, August 2 and last until Sunday, August 5.

The sale begins each year on the first Thursday in August and continues for 4 days (Thursday through Sunday). This great tradition gives participants the opportunity to travel almost 700 miles from Gadsden, Ala. all the way to Addison, Mich. over the course of those four days and see yard sales as far as their eyes will allow.

The portion that will run through DeKalb County stretches from Gadsden to Chattanooga along the Lookout Mountain Parkway. You can find everything from antiques to fresh produce and furniture at the more than 5,000 vendors (with 1,000 in Alabama alone)!

The event is free to the public and on sale times at everyone’s homes typically begin around 8am and operate until late into the evening.

For more information about the World’s Longest Yard Sale, you can visit’s events calendar or for instructions on how to become a vendor or anything else that you could think of.

Good luck to all the bargain hunters!
