Special Events at Noccalula Falls

Throughout the year many special events are held at the Park and Campground, highlighted by “The World’s Longest Yard Sale” held the first Thursday through Sunday in August.

Thousands of bargain-hunters descend on the Park from throughout the U.S. Noccalula Falls Park is the starting point of this 600 plus mile sale that extends into Michigan, also known as the Highway 127 Sale.

Once the temperatures cool and the holidays approach, it is time for “Christmas at the Falls.”  This annual event starts in late November and features millions of lights winding throughout the park with holiday displays and decorations bringing out the Christmas cheer in everyone. 

Each June, the Barbarian Challenge, an obstacle course race through the challenging terrain of the Park, attracts hordes of athletes to Gadsden.

 

Other events include a barbeque festival, car and tractor shows, a multitude of trail-running events, and plenty of music and fun times for the children.
