Have you ever been to a Lancaster County Mud Sale?

Have you ever been to a Lancaster County Mud Sale?

Mud Sales have been a popular past-time in Lancaster County since the mid 60’s.

Many Lancaster County towns have volunteer fire companies which host the sales. The driving force behind the sales is the need to raise funds to pay for much needed equipment and supplies for the fire companies. It’s a great way for people to join together to have some fun, eat great food, and support the community.

The term “mud sale” comes from the pure and simple fact that spring brings lots of rainy weather and mud to the area. This is the best time for local farmers to participate because it is prior to their planting season. The sales typically include multiple auctions for plants, tools, furniture, quilts, crafts, hay, horses, and other live stock…just to name a few things.  We can’t forget to mention the many Lancaster County treats that can be found like homemade donuts, pies, funnel cakes, ice cream, chicken bbq, french fries, and much more.


There are many March sales which are typically the muddiest ones.  Check out the 2018 sale schedule from our friends at lancasterpa.com. Click the links for more information and sale itinerary.


Mark your calendars (and don’t forget your boots) to join the fun!
