Are you looking for a great, old piece of furniture to complement your home? Have you been trying to find a classic, one-of-a-kind gift for a friend or loved one? Do you enjoy stumbling upon unique treasures and hidden gems?
You’ll find all of that and more during the 46th Annual Somerset Antique Show Saturday, August 13 on the streets of Uptown Somerset. Open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and held annually on the second Saturday of August, the street fair has long been a popular event with both area residents and out-of-town guests.
Each year more than 100 antique vendors set up their wares at this long-running show and offer everything from jewelry, glassware, furniture and coins to sports memorabilia, toys, quilts and military relics along with everything in between. Thousands are drawn to the streets of Somerset to peruse the Antique Show, eat at a variety of food booths and visit restaurants, coffee shops and quaint mom-and-pop stores in the historic uptown area.
Also included in the show is an Antique & Classic Car Show from noon to 2 p.m. in the Somerset Trust Co. parking lot along West Main Street.
While at the show, guests are encouraged to visit the information booth, located near the Civil War statue in front of the Somerset County Courthouse, to pick up information on the show as well as other upcoming festivals and area attractions.
Admission to the Somerset Antique Show is free and free parking is available in the lower levels of the Somerset County Parking Garage on East Catherine Street as well as at any legal metered parking space. The event is held rain or shine and those attending are asked to leave their pets at home. A few antique dealer spaces are still available.
