Minnesota’s ‘100 Mile Garage Sale’ Still On for 2020
With the Stay at Home Order extended in our state, Minnesotans are holding on to hope for events slated for later in the year. One of those events is the annual 100 Mile Garage Sale that happens around Lake Pepin.
The citizens of historic river towns in the area clean out their garages and attics to create a truly spectacular shopping experience. Garage sale go-ers can start and end anywhere they wish on the route.
Mississippi Valley Partners sponsors the 100-mile Garage Sale that spans all towns along Lake Pepin. Find participating sales from Hastings, MN south on Hwy. 61 to Winona, MN, across the river to Fountain City, WI and North on Hwy 35 to Prescott, WI.
The event has been happening once a year since 1980 and has always gone on rain or shine. 2020 is no different, organizers have moved the date from spring to fall to work around the COVID-19 crisis.
This year's event is set for September 10th - 13th. Let's hope that by then things will be back to a version of normal and the fall garage sale season will be in full swing. The 100 Mile Garage Sale Facebook page will be continuously posting updates for this year's event.
