City of Fort Thomas Sets City-Wide Yard Sale Day


In December of 2015, Fort Thomas Mayor, Eric Haas, City Council Members and City Administrator, Ron Dill met for a long-term planning session with the goal of creating a vision for enhancing the city.

Mayor Eric Haas starts leading the city's visioning process with a white board session. in Dec. 2015. FTM file. 
The city has since hired professionals to steer that process, but from that original whiteboard session a city-wide yard sale went from brainstorm session to reality.

Last year, 255 homes participated in the first city-wide yard sale. This year, the city wide yard sale will occur on Saturday, May 20 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Fort Thomas residents will soon be able to register their sale location. By registering a sale location, residents will be included in a listing and map of all sales happening on May 20. Yard sale permits will not be required for this city-wide sale. Shoppers looking for a bargain  will be able to download a list and map showing the location of all sales that have been registered with the city.

A few notes:

- This event is rain or shine. There has not been a rain date offered as of yet.
- City officials expect a lot of traffic on that day, so please be careful. No word yet if extra police patrols will be present.
- The hours of the sale are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., although many residents will host their own hours.
- Please do not hang signs on the poles.
