The 14th Annual Bargains Galore on 64 will take place on August 8-10, 2013, Thursday through Saturday. If you haven’t been out looking at all the antiques, collectibles and just great buys, you have missed 160 miles of yard sales. "Shop until you drop" along Highway 64 (which parallels Interstate 40) from Fort Smith past Conway to Beebe, Arkansas
The River Valley of Arkansas is proud to host another of our Bargains Galore on 64 yard sale extravaganzas. This annual event is held on Thursday through Saturday, the second weekend in August and offers a great opportunity for commercial vendors, non-profit groups, clubs, schools, churches, civic organizations, etc., to promote their products or service. There are no limitations on what vendors may market, though we particularly encourage antiques and collectibles.
Designated a "Travel Treasure" by Southern Traveler magazine, the event draws family vacationers and dealers, buyers and sellers alike, who "treasure" not only great bargains along Hwy 64 but also the friendly atmosphere and the beautiful vistas that prevail.
They have grown tremendously each year, thanks to the great support of the various chambers of commerce and other tourist promotion agencies throughout the River Valley area.
Although local merchants and property owners are encouraged to allow vendors to set up on their property along the route, permission should still be acquired. Contact local city offices for any designated setup areas and permit information. No permits are needed in Ozark for this event; however food vendors must comply with Arkansas health regulations.

Rules of the Road
Please use extreme caution when traveling on Highway 64, due to the nature of the sale it can be dangerous to cross the road on foot.
Remember to ALWAYS Drive Friendly and use your Seatbelts and turn-signals; and no matter how great a treasure you’ve spotted from the road, try not to Stop suddenly; also please do not make illegal U-Turns when you see an item you might be interested in. Take the time to go to the next available spot to turn around. The item will probably still be there.
With your help, this can be a SAFE and HAPPY event for everyone.
