Everything You Need To Know About The Round Top Antique Show

August 11th, 2016 by Pamela Murski

Round Top Antiques Fairs

The Round Top Antique Show is by far one of the most expansive antique venues in the nation!  Hosted twice a year, the Round Top Antique Show was started over 48 years ago by Emma Lee Turney.  It has since been sold to another owner but the show goes on,  growing larger and larger with each succeeding year.  The original Round Top Antique Show was located in Round Top Texas and included 1-2 venues. With the Bed and Breakfast just minutes down the road, you can enjoy all  4 specific venues that comprise the show now:  The Big Red Barn Tent and Event Center on HWY 237, the Continental Tent on HWY 237, and the Carmine Dance Hall.  After shopping all day, the B&B outdoor spa is a great way to relax those tired feet and get renewed for the next days shopping journey!

The Round Top Antique Show has always been known for its’ consistent reputation for quality and unusual, one-of-a-kind antiques. There is a fee to shop these venues and one ticket gets you into all 4 spots.  The official Round Top Antiques Show  this Fall is September 26 – October 1, 2016.  The dates for Spring 2017 are not yet available but generally will fall the Monday to Saturday that includes the first weekend in April.  Go to their website for all details.

What so many don’t know is that as the show has grown over the years, it has morphed into much, much more than just the 4 venues of the Round Top Antiques Show.  Vendors line the road, back up into pastures, open air lots,  houses, barns, pavilions, tents, dance halls and more for miles and miles.  The antique shows now incorporate many small Texas towns including Brenham, Shelby, Fayetteville, Carmine, Warrenton, and Burton where a broad collection of promoters and local entrepreneurs provide space for more than 2000 antique, collectible and craft vendors and dealers.  Other towns involved in this shopping extravaganza include Oldenburg, Rutersville, La Grange, Columbus and Smithville.

This part of the show known as Antique Weekend, takes place over two and one-half weeks that end the first weekend of April and October each year.  These shows lead up to what is known as the Round Top Antique Show, culminating in almost three weeks of unbelievable shopping and fun!  The dealers and vendors come from virtually every region of the United States.
