Pomfret’s Town-Wide Tag Sale

September 5 @ 7:00 am - 1:00 pm

Normally held in May, Pomfret’s 14th Annual Town Wide Tag Sale will happen on Saturday, September 5th.  Through this event, the all-volunteer business group Pomfret Proprietors has raised and donated thousands of dollars to support local causes. This year, funds will be donated to the Pomfret Public Library’s capital campaign for an expansion. Make sure you visit Pomfret to enjoy many bargains plus benefits to the local community.

Starting at 7AM, purchase a map to guide you to dozens of participating residences, businesses and organizations spread throughout town. A Town Wide Tag Sale Map makes bargain hunting a breeze. Maps will be sold for $2 each at Pomfret Community School (20 Pomfret Street, corner of RTs 169 & 101) and Christ Church (521 Pomfret St.).

Some group fundraisers include The Friends of Pomfret Public Library’s Used Book Sale, which will be held at the Old Pomfret Townhouse, 11 Town House Drive, from 7AM – 12PM.
