If you enjoy garage sales and flea markets, and the ambiance of a small town celebration, don't miss one of Louisiana's largest "garage sale" events, Abita Springs' Whole Town Garage Sale. The event is scheduled for March 26.
Each March, on the last Saturday, hundreds of people in the Abita Springs area all have their garage on the same day, and people from all over the region come to find great deals and a good time. Vendors set up around the town and at Town Hall, and residents participate with individual private sales at their homes throughout town that day.
Be sure to bring an umbrella - the event is rain or shine. Only a deluge with dangerous winds will cancel it. Parking can be a challenge. The town's lot is behind Mama D's Pizza and More on Hwy. 59 at Leveson St., and the Abita Springs Middle School lot will be open. Street parking will also be available. Or, park outside town and bike the Tammany Trace right to the Trailhead!
First produced in 1994 by the Abita Springs Civic Association and later by the Abita Springs Recreation Committee, the event is produced today by the Town of Abita Springs.
