The US 127 Corridor Sale, also known as the World’s Longest Yard Sale, will celebrate its 25th year Aug. 2-5. The sale is along a 690 mile stretch from just north of Addison, Mich., through Fentress, Cumberland, Bledsoe, Sequatchie and Hamilton Counties in Tennessee to Gadsden, Ala. The four-day sale begins each year the first Thursday in August. Visitors from across the country as well as those who have traveled internationally to the sale, enjoy both sales and attractions along the way.
The US 127 Corridor Sale began in 1987. Mike Walker, former Fentress County Executive, designed the event to get visitors off the interstate and onto back roads. County officials compiled a list of attractions along the route in Kentucky and Tennessee. With more than 300 attractions including beautiful scenery, riverboats, railroads, music, arts, crafts, agritourism, hiking and history, this provided a great opportunity to bring more visitors to Tennessee and the 127 Sale Route.
Today, Fentress County Chamber of Commerce in Jamestown, Tn. is centrally located along the route and serves as headquarters for the 127 Corridor Sale.
