Brimfield!

Anyone familiar with the Sturbridge area knows where and what “Brimfield” means.  Three weeks out of each year, over one mile of Route 20 in nearby Brimfield becomes the home for booth after booth, filled with antiques and amazing collectibles.

The show began in the 1950s and was originally called Gordon Reid’s Famous Antiques Show after auctioneer and founder Gordon Reid.  Over the years, neighbors began buying up acreage to put up their tents and sell antiques “open air” style and now it is known all over the world now as the biggest antique event in the country.  According to the Brimfield Antique Show website, “the Brimfield Show is a huge,  vast undertaking, filled with thousands of 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.”

Over a mile of booths and tents greet visitors at Brimfield!

The show runs for one week in May, one week in July and one week in September.  The July dates are the 10th-15th and there is still time to make your reservation with us at The Publick House! We are only a VERY short drive away!  Call 508-347-3313 for rates and availability.
