The Brimfield Antiques Show began in the 1950's and has become the largest and best-known outdoor antiques show in the country.

The Brimfield Show is a huge undertaking, filled with thousands of dealers dealers over the course of the week, selling everything from the finest antiques to 'yard junk', requiring a day or two to see everything there is to see. (View Show Map.

Food courts and rest facilities abound, and the Shows are filled with hidden treasures and the 'right kind of people', creating a safe and fun environment for everyone, children included.

Brimfield is a quaint, picturesque rural New England town, home to 3,000 residents. Founded in 1731, (the year before George Washington was born), the town's 35 square miles are surrounded by apple orchards, horse farms, and wooded hills in an area known as the Pioneer Valley, and Foothills of the Berkshires.

During show-times, the town's population balloons to over 250,000 visitors and over 5,000 dealers for the 6 days the Show operates. The Show has a carnival-like atmosphere, appropriate for all ages, where good vibes prevail, (and few, if any problems ever present themselves).

Dealers come from all over the world as do visitors. From millionaire world-famous rock stars and movie stars to the local resident from down the street, the Show is a Mecca for serious and casual collectors of all kinds of antiques. A few of the Fields require an entrance fee on the initial opening, usually $5.00-10.00, which tends to be waived later in the day. Most fields do not have any entrance fee, and generally, you can move freely from field to field.

There is almost always plenty of parking available, at $6.00 - 8.00 in the middle of town, a bargain in itself. Also, in the middle of the show, the New England Motel hosts the largest and most popular food court with a wide variety of food booths to satisfy every taste.

Additionally, food carts and booths appear throughout various locations and the wide variety of available foods has become a draw in it's own right.

TIPS↑ top

  • - Traffic getting into and out of town can range from none to over 8 miles of backup. Traffic is unpredictable, and often determined by the weather. Occasionally, peak show times see bumper-to-bumper traffic on the main access road for a few miles - (Rt.20 E&W), but the stream of traffic along the show route is nearly almost always a short inconvenience compared to the surprises and joys of exploration that lie ahead.

  • - For quicker access into the show, take Exit 8 on the MA Pike, (Rt. 90) through Palmer onto Rt 20 East to Brimfield. Directions are posted at the toll booths.
