Brimfield Outdoor Antiques Show
September 8 - September 13
Brimfield is considered the largest outdoor antique show in the country. Up to 5,000 dealers and over 100,000 visitors throughout the week. The crowds can be large, but not uncomfortably so – remember, the Show takes place over almost 1/3 mile of Rt 20, easily going back 500′ on each side of the road. There’s plenty of space to accommodate everyone, with room to spare.
The Brimfield shows operate three times a year during May, July and September and is open for a six day period beginning on a Tuesday and ending on a Sunday, Dawn to dusk, rain or shine! Some operators open all days while others choose to open for just a few days during this period. Food is available for sale in every field. The larger fields will have parking available and can charge between $5 and $10 depending on the day and location.
Some of the shows charge admission. The fees are typically $5.00. You can purchase admission tickets at some of the fields on the days and morning prior to their opening.
