Visit America’s most scenic shopping mall during the “32nd Annual World’s Longest Yard Sale” August 1-4, 2019 in Gadsden, AL! As featured in HGTV coverage, the journey begins in beautiful Gadsden, Alabama atop Lookout Mountain and spans more than 690 miles to Hudson, Michigan.
Conveniently located just 60 miles north of Birmingham on I-59, Gadsden’s unsurpassed beauty, southern hospitality, and quaintness make it the perfect base for a “funderful” shopping experience. Travel the scenic Lookout Mountain Parkway while experiencing “Yard Sale Bliss.”
Your journey begins at Noccalula Falls Park, where hundreds of vendors will set-up shop throughout the park. This could easily consume a whole day of shopping and a paid visit to the Park itself includes a miniature train ride, petting zoo, the Pioneer Village, the Black Creek Trail System, and of course, beautiful Noccalula Falls! Join us at our Welcome Center at the Kiwanis Pavilion for maps, route, and area info, free bottled water and to shop our selection of “World’s Longest Yard Sale” t-shirts!
After a full day of shopping, head to Historic Downtown Gadsden for First Friday from 6-9 pm on August 2nd! Broad Street is closed to traffic and the ambiance of yesteryear comes to life with classic cars, food vendors, live entertainment on every block, and outdoor-dining including pubs and breweries. Top the evening off with a FREE concert at the Mort Glosser Amphitheater (The AMP) featuring AZZ-IZ, a funk, soul, Motown, and dance band at 900 p.m. Bring your cushions and coolers!
The next leg of your journey will find you heading up the Lookout Mountain Parkway from Noccalula Falls Park towards Ft. Payne, but it will take a long time to get there as you pass miles of yard side sales in almost every yard, in parking lots, and at intersections.
Find everything from collectibles, antiques, dish wares, furniture, fresh farm and garden produce, to food vendors, live entertainment, and more! Along the Parkway, take in sights like waterfalls, canyons, rolling hills, farms, old general stores, and a glimpse of hang gliders in the distance.
