The Van Wert Fair Grounds will again be the place to be for the US 127-Lincoln Highway craft/garage sale this year. This is the 23rd Annual World's Longest Yard Sale, with this being the 5th year for the Van Wert Fairgrounds to participate; we are growing with each year. The dates are Wednesday, August 4 thru Saturday, August 7, times are 9 a.m. till 6 p.m. or later.

We are starting one day earlier on Wednesday so that the people from Van Wert and surrounding areas can shop before their sales start on Thursday. We will be having food vendors with a variety of food for everyone to enjoy. This year Don will be serving breakfast starting at 7:30 a.m. Also, there will be Barrel Train rides plus pony rides for the kids. There will be Carmel Corn made fresh daily by First United Brethren in Christ Church. The Cushman Club will be having their motor bikes on display. If you are interested or have questions on the Cushman Club you may call Harold DeBolt at 419-238-1296. There will be camping available for those traveling through and for vendors.
