WESTFIELD - The longest continuously running Antique Show in the United States is once again set to take place the third weekend in July in Westfield, N.Y.
The 74th annual Westfield Antique Show will be held today (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Sunday (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at Eason Hall, 23 Elm St., Westfield. The event will feature a large variety of merchandise, including glass, silver, jewelry, and 18th and 19th century furniture. Twenty-three different dealers from New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Connecticut and Indiana will be on hand.
The Westfield Antique Show first started in 1938 by Doc and Edis Shelkey, who were well-known local antique dealers during that era. Since then, the event has become an annual tradition in Westfield, attracting not only local antique collectors and dealers, but also many others from throughout the Northeast. It is now organized annually by the Chautauqua County Historical Society.
Admission for the Westfield Antiques Show is $5 for both days. Anyone who attends the show is also given free access during the weekend to the McClurg Museum in Moore Park, home of the Chautauqua County Historical Society. Free parking is available in the municipal lot on Elm Street (within half a block of Eason Hall). Free street parking is available on all streets surrounding Moore Park. All show venues are within one block surrounding Moore Park (corner of Routes 20 and 394).
