Gearing up for another year of shows in Washington County

(Greenwich, NY) – The May and August shows at the Washington County Fairgrounds have continued to grow in 2014, beyond all expectations. At the May 2014 show, 253 dealers saw over 5,900 customers come through the gates despite a very cold and rainy spring weekend. At the August 2014 show, 240 dealers saw over 6,000 customers come through the gates.

For 2015, the first show is scheduled for May 2nd and 3rd, 1 week before the Brimfield shows. The second show at the fairgrounds is scheduled for August 3rd and 4th, during the height of the Saratoga Springs racing season.

Greenwich is ideally situated for these events, just 30 miles north of the Albany/Troy/Schenectady area, and 12 miles east of the famous resort city of Saratoga Springs. Lake George is less than 20 miles away. The surrounding area is heavily steeped in colonial American History. The historic Saratoga Battlefield is only 3 miles from the fairground.

The Antique Fair features an average of over 225 dealers from all over the northeast, specializing in a wide variety of antiques, collectibles, crafts, and flea market items. Furniture, Post Cards, Art, Glassware, Tools, Linens, Records, Paper, Coins, Toys, and Smalls can be found at this event. Over 90% of our exhibitors specialize in antiques and older collectibles.

The public’s weekend ticket (also good for unlimited show re-entries) is only $3. Seniors 65+ are only $2, and children under 14 are admitted free. Public gates open at 8am on Saturday, and 9am Sunday.

Early Buyers can enter the grounds with the dealers during setup (Friday) using a $10 early buyer pass available at the gate beginning at 7am, plus unlimited re-entries during public hours throughout the rest of the weekend.

There are acres of free parking at the fairgrounds, and camping facilities for those staying overnight. There is a porter service that can deliver your purchases to the gate area during show hours. Several dealers also provide appraisals for your antiques. Leashed pets are also welcome.
