One of the premier fall kick-off events in the Shenandoah Valley is the 57th Shenandoah Antiques Expo, at the Augusta Expoland, Fishersville, Va. Originating in 1986, the Shenandoah/Fishersville antique show is the largest indoor/outdoor show in the mid-Atlantic region. The Augusta Expo Center offers a fabulous venue for both exhibitors and collectors. Hundreds of exhibitors bring an eclectic mixture of antiques and collectibles, including 18th- and 19th-century American and English period antiques plus a trove of vintage Americana, jewelry, silver, glassware, primitives, rugs and mid-century modern pieces. Many collectors show up at sunrise on Friday to wait for the gates to open at 9 a.m. to comb the many exhibition halls, barns, tents and stalls looking for that special treasure. There is something for everybody; intriguing collectibles include doorstops, stoneware, toys, Civil War memorabilia, vintage, hard-to-find hardware and restoration pieces and much, much more.
The Friday $10 three-day pass gives you first choice at the many treasures to be found. Saturday two-day and Sunday passes are $5, and all passes include free parking.
Admission Fee: Friday $10 (three day pass), Saturday $5 (two-day) Sunday $5.
