treasure hunt

Discover some treasures and have some fun during North Dakota’s 100-mile rummage sale, the Highway 21 Treasure Hunt, June 16-17.

The Highway 21 Treasure Hunt will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Friday and Saturday, June 16-17.

“With approximately 100 rummage sales along the 100-mile route, this is the most unique rummage sale event in North Dakota,” says Luann Dart, who coordinates the event.

During the event, communities along Highway 21 in southwestern North Dakota host citywide rummage sales. Participating communities include Flasher, Carson, Heil, Elgin, New Leipzig, Mott, Regent and New England. Rural residents host sales, too, so watch for signs along the route for additional sales.

“Anyone who enjoys rummage sales will love this event,” Dart says. “It’s fun to travel the route during this unique event and discover lots of treasures.”

Listings for each community’s sales will be available at certain locations in that community, such as restaurants or gas stations, as well as on the Highway 21 Treasure Hunt Facebook page.

A small group of volunteers from each community spearheads the event each year, with advertising expenses covered with donations from local, civic-minded organizations.

“Hundreds of people have discovered the treasures along Highway 21 during the annual Highway 21 Treasure Hunt,” Dart says. “We encourage everyone to plan to attend the 2023 event.”
