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 Guide for Fall 2017 (425 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 feature for Round Top Texas life & style. Our downloadable map for the Fall 2017 show is available to newsletter subscribers.
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.
