About the Sale
The first Vera Bradley Outlet Sale was held in 1983 in a 10' by 10' tent in our hometown of Ft Wayne, Indiana. Now, the Vera Bradley Annual Outlet Sale is held in the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum and has become an annual celebration for fans of the brand. Spanning five days, the sale has evolved into a not-to-be-missed event, bringing fans from all 50 states together for shopping, fun and amazing deals on product. Products available at the sale are primarily retired and overstock items (shop early for best selection). The first three days offer multiple ticketed sessions to shop where shoppers take advantage of great product selection (get your tickets early as sessions do sell out). The last two days are open to the public with no ticket required to enter.
This year we’ll be joined by special guests from the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo and the SPCA. Bring non-perishable foods to benefit those in need and receive a special offer on Saturday and Sunday. Follow us on social media for more updates. We can’t wait to meet you!
