“The Show Must Go On!” Brimfield

            Auction Acres to Hold Show May 12-15

            BRIMFIELD, MA – Brimfield Auction Acres, the birthplace and originator of the world-
            famous “Brimfield Antique Show,” will go it alone this May in Brimfield with a four-day
            show to be held May 12-15, 2021.
               Following a devastating 2019 for all the 20+ Brimfield Show Promoters of the collective
            “Brimfield Antique Shows,” and the tens of thousands of antique dealers/collectors and local
            businesses that welcome the influx of business, the State of Massachusetts and local officials
            gave the green light at the end of March for May Brimfield Week to take place. While other
            show fields have opted to wait until the July show week to return, Brimfield Auction Acres
            is planning to go forward with its May show in the exact field where visionary and auctioneer
            Gordan Reid launched “The greatest outdoor antique show under the sun” in 1959.
               “It only makes sense that the authentic field that started it all will be the one to kick off
            the 2021 show season,” says Kate Corriveau, who with her husband, Rusty Corriveau, are
            the owners of the Brimfield Auction Acres show field. “The experience of shopping the
            Auction Acres show will be reminiscent of Brimfield’s early days when Auction Acres was
            the only show in town.”
                                                                   Corriveau anticipates its May
                                                                show to be one of the biggest
                                                                antique shows in New England
                                                                this spring, and is planning for
                                                                over 300 dealers and thousands
                                                                of show-goers. The show will
                                                                open on Wednesday, May 12th

                                                                Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. All social distancing and health and safety guidelines

                                                                the show in a safe and responsible manner,” says Corriveau, “We look forward to
