Spring into the Brimfield Antique Show

Spring in New England means finally putting away our snow shovels, and then splashing through the rain puddles of April. But eventually, May greets us with warming temperatures and flowers in full bloom. It is in early May that New Englanders also greet the arrival of the Brimfield Antiques Show. The event, located in historic Brimfield, Massachusetts, is one of the largest outdoor antiques show in the world, with over 6,000 dealers and 130,000+ visitors during the course of the week.

Brimfield Art & Antiques

"The Brimfield Antiques Show began in the 1950's and has become the largest and best-known outdoor antiques show in the country. Running along Rt. 20 for a distance of perhaps a half-mile and perhaps 500' or more, back on each side of the highway, the Brimfield Show is a huge,  vast undertaking, filled with thousands of dealers dealers over the course of the week, selling everything from the finest antiques to 'yard junk', requiring a day or two to see everything there is to see. Food courts and rest facilities abound, and the Shows are filled with hidden treasures and the 'right kind of people', creating a safe and fun environment for everyone, children included. Shows are patrolled by uniformed and undercover police, and rarely is there any trouble of any kind ...

Brimfield is a quaint, picturesque rural New England town, home to 3,000 residents.  Founded in 1731, (the year before George Washington was born), the town's 35 square miles are surrounded by apple orchards, horse farms, and wooded hills in an area known as the Pioneer Valley, and Foothills of the Berkshires." - courtesy The Brimfield Show
