The 4-Day, 400-Mile SWAG Fest

What do you get when you roll 60 communities together with hundreds of yard sales, food vendors, antique shops, and a stretch of 400 miles along US 68 and KY 80? Throw in hundreds of bargain hunters willing to make that trek, and you've got the 400-Mile Sale, a SWAG fest par excellence. Last year bargain hunters looking for SWAG (Stuff We All Get) came from as far away as California and even Canada to participate in the sale. Communities throughout the region took the opportunity to hold special events and, of course, yard sales!

This year's 4-day, 400-Mile Sale promises to be even better than past ones. In Old Washington vendors will be setting up in the lot across from the Visitors Center. Shops will be open earlier and close later during this four day event. Blue Licks State Park will host a spot for the 400 Mile Yard Sale and has planned programs and special activities throughout the entire weekend. Friday night the Lodge dining room will feature an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet featuring crab legs and peel-n-eat shrimp. The Mason County Homemakers will also have their annual Blacktop Sale at the Mason County Cooperative Extension Service Parking Lot (contact 606-564-6808 for info).

The 400-Mile sale will continue June 1st-4th. A full list of all of the special events for the entire 400-mile stretch can be found here. So fire up your RV and go get some SWAG!
