Warrensburg Garage Sale
The Warrensburg Garage Sale is affectionately promoted in the upstate NY Adirondack Mountains as “The World’s Largest Garage Sale”!
Is it truly the World's Largest Garage Sale? Probably not. Yes, other places make the “world's largest” claim, but believe me it is huge, and certainly the largest I’ve ever seen! The event is held each autumn the weekend before Columbus Day (... but check out my events calendar for the exact dates). Warrensburg with a population of around 5,000 people, grows to nearly 100,000 that weekend (… according to some people)!
The Warrensburg Garage Sale actually stretches for many miles on Route 9 starting south of Lake George Village then through Warrensburg and continues north past Warrensburg towards Chestertown.
Main street (… Rt 9) in the Village of Warrensburg has lots of vendors (... over 1000 of them according to some!). They travel from locations across USA and even Canada selling antiques and many products to clear out their inventory to make room for new products. There are some excellent buys.
But that’s just the beginning. The side streets are where you’ll find most of the individual garage sales, hundreds of them! Just plain old town folks holding yard sales. This is where you may find many unique treasures, some at great prices.
At the Warrensburg Garage Sale, you will find everything and anything! Here is just a sampling of items you may find: Antiques, handmade rustic furniture, handmade crafts, local artisans booths, electronics, jewelry, collectible glassware, vintage books, hardware, tools, bottles, knives, clothing, hats, tee-shirts, toys (old, new, baby) … well you get the picture!
The list goes on and on. You’ll probably find just about anything including those hard-to-find items you’ve been looking for. Hey! … one persons junk is another person’s treasure! The Warrensburg Garage Sale is truly a garage sale lover’s dream!
Of course you will also find just about anything you want to eat in Warrensburg that weekend.
The streets are loaded with food vendors selling everything including: hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, chicken wings, BBQ ribs, sausage smothered in onions and peppers, Philly cheese steaks, pitas, home baked goods, cookies and pastries, cotton candy, pizza, ice cream, and much more!
But if you’re in for a nice relaxing sit down meal during your long weekend of garage sale shopping my favorite Warrensburg eatery is the small quaint Willows Bistro on Main street. The food there is awesome!
The Warrensburg Garage Sale officially starts Saturday but some of the individual garage sales start a day or so earlier. And many of the registered garage sale booths open Friday in the late afternoon. So get there early if you want to take advantage of all that is offered.
In fact, consider making a long weekend of it. The fall foliage is about at its peak and the Adirondack Mountains are absolutely gorgeous that time of the year! There are plenty of places to stay in the area (… including our Adirondack chalet!).
