Wartrace Annual Town Wide Yard Sale Set For Aug. 26-27

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

An annual tradition in late August for middle Tennessee pickers and yard sale fans is the town wide yard sale held in the historic town of Wartrace, Tn. 

This Aug. 26 and 27, Wartrace is opening its arms to out of town vendors and dealers and encouraging local residents to scour their garages and attics for items to offer the hundreds of visitors who attend the event each year. Buyers will find antiques, collectibles, flea market merchandise, hand made crafts, and the occasional odd ball what-is-it along the thoroughfares and off the beaten paths in town. This year sections have been reserved for the sale of used cars and farm and lawn equipment. The Friday and Saturday event sponsored by the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce will take on a festival atmosphere with food vendors and a music DJ on the square.

Dealer space is available downtown at a nominal $35. fee for out of town merchandisers and food vendors. Local residents are invited to hold sales in their yards at no charge. Contact the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce at (931)-580-2866 or by email at wartracechamber@msn.com to reserve vendor space. The sale opens at 6:00 AM and closes at 5:00 PM each day.

Wartrace is approximately one hour from Nashville and Chattanooga on Interstate 24. From I-24 exit #97, take Highway 64 ten miles west to Wartrace.
