Dixie Highway Yard Sale

The 90 mile Dixie Highway Yard Sale is an annual event that spans ninety miles from Ringgold on through Acworth. This yard sale is also a historic driving tour along the Dixie Highway. In fact, one of the frequently purchased items is a souvenir version of the Dixie Highway road sign. In addition to the yard sale event, organizers in each area are promoting everything the communities have to offer throughout the year.

The yard sale takes place starting on the first Friday of the first full weekend in June and begins at 8 am on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There are plenty of great restaurants along the route, and signs will be in place to direct you to the yard sales.

The yard sale starts on the first Friday of the first full weekend in June and continues through Saturday, and Sunday.  Hours may vary but most sales venues are open from 8 am to dusk.  For 2024, the first full weekend in June is June 7-9, 2024.

  1. I would absolutely love to take part in this! I’m wondering if Acworth has any spots open to rent though, or if we’re allowed to just find space wherever? I live just off of Main Street (just a street or two down from where the above picture was taken actually). Can I just hunt out a spot and set up a table?

  2. The Dixie Hwy. website doesn’t say………..Where can we rent a space in Acworth and/or Kennesaw? I was not at last year’s so I am uncertain where the typical areas are or the prices.

  3. You can set up any where along Hwy 41 for FREE . The only places you must ask and they may charge a fee is private owners of land,businesses and homes.

  4. I know it’s a bit early, I’m needing a decently size area to set up for the upcoming 2023 41 sale this year. No electric required or bathroom ( I have my own). I have everything from A-Z. If you are renting spots this year in the Calhoun or acworth area, I’d love to speak with you. Thanks

  5. Adairsville rerouted the route from the Old Dixie Highway
    to the US 41 Highway because more vendors had set up
    on that route. Adairsville is a horrible place.

  6. I agree I live on north main street close to new Life Ministries just pass where the old 41 aka original Dixie highway crossing the highway 140 and when this yard sale first started few years back everyone done good down the stretch where I live to police station I know but past few years hardly anyone has been setting up if that continues to be the case they need to change name to highway 41 yard sale cause that’s not old Dixie highway especially in adairsville
