127 Garage Sale

August 4-7, 2022

The World’s Longest Yard sale. People set up all over, from all over, selling items and treasures! We have over 200 vendors that are set up at our over 350 vendor locations, with open locations remaining for new coming vendors. During this event, we offer camping spots for vendors and travelers!

The World’s Longest Yard Sale
The 127 Yard Sale is commonly referred to as “The World’s Longest Yard Sale”. That’s because it really is the longest yard sale in the world. To be exact, it’s 690 miles long and the route travels through 6 states; Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama. The majority of the route follows Highway 127 from Addison, MI in the north to Chattanooga, TN in the south. From Lookout Mountain, GA to Gadsden, AL the route switches to Lookout Mountain Parkway. Both are scenic drives allowing you to appreciate the beautiful countryside of these states all while enjoying the fun and excitement of The World’s Longest Yard Sale.
