The Dixie Highway Yard Sale is a 90 mile along the historic Dixie Highway starting in Ringgold, Georgia and ending in Marietta. The yard sale is a celebration of the communities along the route and the revitalization of the Dixie Highway. The yard sale passes through eleven communities in all, including Marietta, Kennesaw, Acworth, Emerson, Cartersville, Cassville, Adairsville, Calhoun, Resaca, Dalton, Rocky Face, Tunnel Hill and Ringgold. The yard sale takes place the first weekend in June and begins at 8am on each day.
In Marietta, the premier location this year will be at the Marietta Museum of History, located just off Marietta Square. The museum will be selling books, home decor, vintage items, clothing, and more. Also included are items that have been removed from the collection because they do not fulfill the Museum’s mission – such as ski pins, souvenir spoons, military memorabilia. Proceeds benefit care of the Museum’s permanent collection.
