Highway 60 Yard Sale is this weekend | Events
The seventh annual Highway 60 Yard Sale will take place this Friday-Sunday, October 5-7. The sale will stretch for 200 miles along U.S. Highway 60 through Livingston, Crittenden, Union, Henderson, Daviess, Hancock, Breckinridge, and Meade counties in western Kentucky.
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. According to GRADD, the event allows visitors from Kentucky and surrounding states to shop for bargains “while taking in the distinctive flavor of the Ohio Valley’s unique restaurants, shops, and southern hospitality”.
Property owners located along U.S. Highway 60 may participate in the event by either holding a yard sale or sidewalk 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. Non-profits are also eligible to take part in the yard sale, and should contact the event representative for their county if they desire to participate and would like a list of property owners willing to offer their space for the sale.
In addition to the Highway 60 Yard Sale, shoppers may also want to check out the GRADD Arts & Crafts Festival, held concurrently at John James Audubon State Park in Henderson, along the central portion of the route, on Saturday and Sunday, October 6 and 7. For the past 40 years, this annual event has been delighting visitors with artisan and craftsman booths, artist demonstrations, delicious food, and live music, set against a scenic natural backdrop.
Highway 60 property owners who wish to participate in the event should contact the representative for the event in their county. For participants interested in selling food, county representatives can also provide contact information for the appropriate county health department. County health departments will provide guidelines for food preparation and serving guidelines, permits and fees. County contacts for the Highway 60 Yards Sale are as follows:
