After 34 years of the festival being held on the 2nd full weekend of August, festival organizers have decided to move it to the first full weekend with the 2016 dates being August 5,6&7.
The date changes are in effort to distance Maine’s Largest antiques event from other major antiquing events in the northeast formerly scheduled during the same time. In doing so, sellers and shoppers alike will not have to choose which major events to go to and which to miss as it will now be possible to attend all. In addition, the schedule change will enable more dealers to be set up and sell at the Union Maine Festival.
The Maine Antiques Festival’s first show was August 14&15, 1982 and was originated in part by Paul Davis the present manager and owner of this festival. Over the 34 years of its existence millions of dollars worth of antiques have exchanged hands on the grounds of the Union Fair location where the festival takes place. With over 100 dealer booths located in both enclosed and open air buildings as well as 100 more in tents large and small on the field, people searching for vintage items and true antiques have a multitude of merchandise to choose from.
