Annual Town Wide Tag Sale
First Saturday in May

Started in 2006 as a creative and fun way to bring our community together and show it off to the world, Pomfret’s Town Wide Tag Sale is sponsored & organized by the Pomfret Proprietors Association.

Pomfret residents and organizations offers tag sale bargains galore! Visitors purchase a map the morning of the sale for just $1 that shows dozens of locations all over town (often 50 to 60 locations!).

Profits from map sales and registrations go right back into our community to benefit local groups & causes, including organization, charities and occasional student scholarships.

Over the years, it has become a popular local tradition that is so successful other area towns have replicated it. Our Town Wide Tag Sale brings throngs of visitors from other towns and even neighboring states. It has gotten attention in many local and regional publications and other media outlets (even TV!).

At our 2014 event, we raised over $1,000 for the First Congregational Church of Pomfret to help rebuild their church destroyed by a winter fire. In 2015, we donated $500 to support our all-volunteer staffed Pomfret Times newspaper! Since its inception in 2006, we have raised and donated thousands of dollars to local causes and organizations.
