Washington Antiques Fair

Born in 1978 out of finding a practical use for an unused race track, Washington Antiques Fair is going strong and welcomes every month, rain or shine, hundreds of quality antiques dealers and thousands of visitors

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.

The location for Washington Antiques Fair is a large level paved lot surrounding a minor league baseball stadium, home to the Washington Wild Things. This huge space is used in its entirety and the area truly comes to life with hundreds of quality antiques dealers and around 2,000 visitors. Of course, it is a large outdoor area so markets are subject to the elements. They generally take place rain or shine, so determined shoppers should come prepared.

The vendors at Washington Antiques Fair make sure that visitors have a little bit of everything to browse around. There are plenty of lovely antiques, beautiful jewelry, vintage clothing, collectibles, comics, memorabilia from movies and TV shows, furniture, watches and clocks, vintage decor, ornaments and much more. There is definitely something for everyone, whether serious collector or casual shopper.

Vendors are keen to sell their wares at Washington Antiques Fair, and bargains can be struck at almost every table. So come here ready to engage with the sellers, and you surely will not leave empty handed.

There is a small fee to attend Washington Antiques Fair, and bargain enthusiasts have the option to pay for early entry. Whenever you make it in, you will be more than satisfied with the range of goods on display.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
