2021 Brimfield Antique Show Update!!
Monday, April 12, 2021
The Town has received word that of the 23 fields that regularly open for the Brimfield Antique Shows, there will be 1 opening in May for vendors. Auction Acres - which was the field that started the show back in 1959, will be open from Wednesday, May 12 through Saturday, May 15, and will host over 250 vendors. Additionally, we have 3 Antique Shops that during a regular show host vendors in parking areas and lawns, who will still be open for antiquing, although no external vendors will be present. Finally, we have 2 local restaurants that usually have vendors outside as well who will be open for business during the shows, although specific times may vary, and will only be open for food, no vendors.

Last night, the Select Board agreed to have the May show after an “approval” from both the local Board of Health and the State Dept of Public Health, using the guidelines set up by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
After the Selectmen’s meeting, the individual field owners (22+/- separate shows all working in unison to deliver what we all know as the Brimfield Antique Show) had a meeting to decide if they were going to be able to open. A majority of them (but not all) opted not to try for May, and instead focus attention on hopefully being able to deliver a successful July (and September) show.
The list of who is opening is due back to us (the Select Board) by this Friday. At that point, we will have a much clearer understanding of who and how many will be open.
