Two Major Antiques Shows Scheduled this Summer in Upstate New York by Allman Promotions
Shows will be held in Round Lake between Saratoga Springs and Albany and at Onondaga Lake Park near Syracuse.
(I-Newswire) May 11, 2010 - (Clayton, NY) Allman Promotions will host the 38th Annual Round Lake Antiques Festival and the 27th Annual Great American Antiquefest for the summer enjoyment of Upstate New York. Round Lake, 20 miles north of Albany and 8 miles south of Saratoga Springs will be held June 26-27 and Great American will be held at Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool, NY, 8 miles west of Syracuse on July 23-25.
Both events will feature over 200 quality dealers. The Round Lake Antiques Festival, the Capitol District’s largest, oldest and most popular Antiques and Collectibles show, features exhibitors in 20 x 25 foot booths in a park-like setting that has drawn crowds in excess of 10,000 people for the last 20 years. The Round Lake Antiques Festival is sponsored by the Women’s Round Lake Improvement Society which uses proceeds to help fund the town’s library. The annual three day Great American Antiquefest routinely attracts dealers from across the United States and Canada and 8,000 to 10,000 customers. Held in a beautiful lake shore park eight miles west of Syracuse, The Great American Antiquefest occurs in the geographic center of Upstate New York - still one of the most productive regions for good quality antiques anywhere in the country. Antiquefest, Syracuse’s oldest and best loved outdoor antiques show, will feature acres of quality antiques, abundant and delectable foods and amenities that make shopping easy, including bulky item pickup services and free directories.
This year’s Antiquefest will feature a special display and discussion on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. Jan and Harold Reichard, local history enthusiasts, attired in costumes of the period, will share their knowledge and items from their collection, relating to the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln. Of note, on display, will be a piece of the bunting from the exterior of Abraham Lincoln’s coffin. Harold will talk through the last hours of Lincoln’s life.
Both Shows attract knowledgeable and sophisticated collectors and buyer as well as young people looking for well designed as well as utilitarian items. The Shows are heavily promoted on television, radio, newspapers, through mailing lists and in trade publications and are widely supported by the local antiques communities with great followings of both attendees and exhibitors.
The Round Lake Antiques festival has free admission with free parking and free shuttle service to offsite parking.
General admission to The Great American Antiquefest is $6. Early buyers' admission takes place Friday, July 23, from 9 am to 12 noon. Early buyer passes cost $20.00 and are good for unlimited re-entry to the show all three days.
