The Dixie Highway Yard Sale is an annual event held on the first full weekend of June. Dixie Highway is 90 miles of yard sales with all sorts of vendors.
It was created in 2006 to celebrate historic communities along the Dixie Highway, including several in Bartow County. Starting in Ringgold and ending in Marietta, it has everything from antiques, souvenirs and knick-knacks to classic attractions, food, events and more.
Sales will take place in Ringgold, Tunnel Hill, Rocky Face, Dalton, Resaca, Calhoun, Adairsville, Cassville, Cartersville, Emerson, Acworth, Kennesaw and Marietta. Yard sale hours vary but most sales are open daily from 7 a.m. to dusk.

Pettit Creek Farms and Friendship Baptist Church are two Cartersville places participating in the Dixie Highway Yard Sale with mega sales. The church, which will make available its restrooms, won't have a sale on Sunday.
In conjunction with the 90-mile yard sale, Cartersville's The Pumphouse Players will perform its last shows of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, "the absurdist comedy written by Steve Martin" that "places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904," according to PHP's website.
Shows are set for Friday and Saturday, June 7 and 8, both at 8 p.m. at the Legion Theatre. Tickets are $14.
The Dixie Highway Yard Sale takes place on the two-lane Dixie Highway, also known as “Old 41." For more information on the Dixie Highway Yard Sale, go to olddixiehighwayyardsale.com or visit the sale's Facebook page.
