9 Counties, 35+ communities, 500 Miles of fun!

Garage Sale regulars call themselves “Junkers” and a “Jaunt” is a sprint or short run. Thus, you could say it is ‘running for the junk’.

Nebraska’s JUNK JAUNT® is nearly 500 miles of garage sales, collectibles, antiques, vintage, gastric delights and just plain fun.

It began in 2004 with about 75 vendors and 1,000 shoppers. Annual license plate surveys and guest book sign-ins tell us that upwards of 25,000 people attend from nearly every state, several Canadians provinces and even a few foreign visitors. Some veteran “junkers”  have been to every JUNK JAUNT®, while others it is their inaugural trip.

Come see Nebraska’s Beautiful Scenery

NEBRASKA’S JUNK JAUNT® takes place in central Nebraska. Two of Nebraska’s most beautiful Scenic Byways, The Sandhills Journey Byway and the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway, form the basic “looping route” of the JUNK JAUNT®.
