Washington Antiques Fair started its operations back in 1978, and to say it is going strong would be an understatement. This antique market was born out of finding a practical use for an unused race track on Sundays, and in its early days operated with just 25 vendors.
Over the years, the number of vendors grew to upwards of 500, and Washington Antiques Fair maintained its popularity even with a change of venue. The same family has been organizing this fair since its inception, and even with the large size and huge crowds that the market attracts, it still maintains a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for all. It should not be mistaken with the Washington County Antique Fair which is also a monthly antique market, but located in Upstate New York, north of Albany.
