Iowa Has a Surprisingly Epic Yard Sale Every Summer

It’s definitely Spring, which means it’s almost yard/garage sale season in Iowa! We here in Iowa love a good garage sale! You’ll find them popping up everywhere, but there’s one that pops up almost literally everywhere across part of the state.

It stretches for about 100 miles between Sioux City and Des Moines and it’s called the Highway 141 yard sale because, well, it takes place along Highway 141, the weekend of August 4th and 5th.

Only in Your State compares it to a massive flea market, or Farmers’ Market, much like the one we hold every summer in Cedar Rapids. It’s on a route many travelers often skip past, making it an easy trip to hunt for a bargain.

Check out more about the Highway 141 Garage Sale from Only In Your State. But if you can’t wait until August, be sure to plan on joining KDAT as we support the Community-wide Garage Sale, powered by Dupaco Community Credit Union on Saturday, May 13. Get registered by May 1 at 5 p.m. to be included in the directory and pick up a free garage sale kit featuring stickers, signs and balloons to help bring more visibility to your sale.

Do some spring cleaning by selling your stuff, or find your own next great garage sale treasure. Find the details at the KDAT Events Page, and happy shopping!
