The Round Top area hosts two big antiques shows annually. Venues are open in Burton, Carmine, Round Top, Warrenton, Oldenburg, Kenney — but are collectively known as the Round Top Antique Show.
The spring version begins mid-March and runs through the first weekend in April while the fall edition commences mid-September and ends the first weekend in October.
There is no way you can describe it quickly, but we’ve pulled together a bunch of resources.
- Our Round Top Antiques Show Schedule Fall 2017 Update 8-18-17 (14 downloads) includes the venues that are open, by day, as well as all of the special events that occur during the show.
- Our fun, hand-drawn, collectible map was done by John Lowery as a special insert for Round Top Texas life & style. Our downloadable map for the Fall 2017 show will be available in late August.
If you are looking for lodging ideas, we have them as well. Recommendation: start early and recognize that there are many options from RV parks to guesthouses to B&Bs to hotels and motels.
When it comes to shopping, the entire area is a wonderland for shopping. If it’s your first time to attend, expect to be overwhelmed. Twenty-five miles of fields, barns, yards, buildings and acres and acres of tents can leave the uninitiated a little breathless.
Read our tips here. Bottomline, don’t try to see it all in one day. If you only have a day to shop, spend some time on social media looking at what others buy/post. That will help you narrow down the fields/venues that may strike your fancy. And talk to people…Round Top shoppers are friendly!
We recognize that food is a key part of any trip to the Round Top area. We’ve compiled our best suggestions.
