This outdoor event began in 1963 with a few collectible and antique stores displaying their items on tables outside St Paul’s Church. It has grown into 300 select antique and collectible dealers from all over the country and 20,000+ loyal fans. We now span the entire 11 Blocks of First Street in the historic town of Benicia with beautiful views of the Carquinez Strait.
The show offers connoisseurs and new collectors alike an opportunity to examine and purchase items that include period furniture, decorative antiques, vintage textiles and fashion, pottery, porcelain, pink and blue depression glass, paintings, prints, jewelry, clocks, watches, treen and much, much more. The fair gives the public a rare opportunity to ask questions from knowledgeable dealers and witness firsthand the rare history of our great country.
