The Twentieth Annual Great U.S. 50 Yard Sale will be held Friday-Sunday, May 17-19, 2019.  The yard sale started in 2000, stretching across most of Indiana.  The goal is for it to grow into a Coast-to-Coast event held each year on the weekend before the Memorial Day weekend.  The Great U.S. 50 Yard Sale also serves to promote tourism along U.S. 50, to unite the many diverse communities, to provide opportunities for fund raising by civic organizations, to aid the environment through recycling,  and to serve as an opportunity for individuals to enjoy a great weekend of sales.

While promoted as a yard sale, the actual sales are limited only by the imagination and law.  Individual communities and businesses along U.S. 50 are encouraged to have special promotions during this weekend.  Vendors, especially antique and craft dealers, from all over the U.S. are welcome to join us.

This is a non-sponsored event, meaning that it is not promoted by any particular organization, but represents the efforts of volunteers and those who wish to promote their communities.  As such, the nature of the sale will vary along the route.  U.S. 50 is Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC.  It is Wyatt Earp Blvd in Dodge City, Kansas.  It crosses mountains and deserts, as well as farm land.  In some communities U.S. 50 is now a super highway and the sale route might follow Old 50.  With such diversity, many decisions will have to be made at the local level.
