Kansas Barn Sale 2018!!

We’re not a big company. Not a corporation, not a franchise. We’re the little guys working hard JUST LIKE YOU. We started in 2010 with a vision, a BIG DREAM, to bring an event to Kansas that had never been seen here before. 🌼 We had no idea it would catch on like wildfire, that tv and media outlets would take notice, or that it would capture attention of places like Midwest Living, Country Living Magazine and lots more.
THANK YOU for so many amazing years so far and can you believe THE BEST is yet to come?!
Join us Oct. 6, 2018 with over 100 hand-picked vendors from across the country for incredible shopping, live music, amazing food, and the HAPPIEST show of the year!!!
Can't wait to see you at Lakeside Park in McPherson!

Kansas Barn Sale, 2014!

We did it! A few weeks ago, we had Kansas Barn Sale. That's the big mac-daddy Art & Antique show in Kansas!
Y'all blew our minds. People started forming a line to get in an hour and a half before the gates opened.

It was junky vintagey Black Friday-like madness. So fun!! So crazy.

Pickers, junkers, and collectors came from all over the country.
Thousands and thousands of people! Kansas Barn Sale has the best junk and art in the Midwest.

Live music, delicious food, a beautiful barn, and all the shopping you can dream of....
It was rusty crusty Fall happiness!

What else is there to do?

One of the more frequent questions we receive is "What else is there to do in the area?"

So many people travel from around the country to attend Kansas Barn Sale, and then spend the weekend here.
So, over the next few months we'll be listing some additional things to do.

- Newton Et Cetera Shop. This is one of our favorite thrift stores to pick through. You never know what you'll find, but it's guaranteed to be a great price, and there is always friendly service!

- Andersons Office Supply. Don't let the "office supply" name fool you. While they do carry office products, this is much more like an old fashioned five and dime shop! It was started in 1892 and is conveniently located right next to the Etc. Shop on Main Street in Newton.

- The Old Hardware Store in Halstead. This place is pure eye candy from the time you pull up in front of the building. It's like a mash up of a museum, a hardware store, and an antique store. The staff is incredibly warm and helpful! You'll swear you just stepped back in time.

- Fox Theater in Newton. This historic theater hosts various events throughout the year including classic movies on select Friday nights. How fun to see a classic film in a great theater!

- Hesston Golf Park. Kansas Barn Sale is very "man-friendly" and dudes certainly won't feel out of place here. But if you want to let the ladies do their shopping alone, set up a Tee time at Hesston Golf Park. It's a beautifully maintained course and only a few miles from the big sale.

- Papas Pumpkin Patch. Just a few miles up the dirt road from Kansas Barn Sale is a great pumpkin patch! It's family owned, the kindest people, and best of all - Free admission! Take the kiddos and enjoy the activities, grab a few pumpkins or gourds, and have an enjoyable family outing.

Keep watching as we'll add more things soon!
