Michigan Antique Festival in Davisburg to be one of the largest!

Davisburg, Mich. – The secret is out: The Michigan Antique Festival in Davisburg is the place to be if you love browsing antiques, purchasing one-of-a-kind treasures or speaking with highly-reputable antique dealers from across America.

Scheduled for Oct. 7-8, this fall’s show promises to be bigger and better than ever – just what people have come to expect from Michigan’s premier antique & collectible festival for 46 years.

“Our spring show in Davisburg was off the charts,” said Michigan Antique Festival Owner Lori Oberlin. “We couldn’t believe the number of people there. And we have lots more antique dealers signed up for the fall show. The buzz in the antique world in Michigan seems to be all about Davisburg now.”

Antique dealers – some travelling from as far away as North Carolina, Florida and New York – will fill all the buildings plus additional spaces at Springfield Oaks County Park. The park, which hosts the Oakland County Fair each summer, is the perfect venue for a large event such as the Michigan Antique Festival and it is home to the Ellis Barn that provides a picturesque setting for the antique booths.

“Oakland County welcomed us with open arms – a new vintage market in southeast Michigan,” she said. “I’m very excited for this fall’s show and the future of the Michigan Antique Festival in Davisburg.”

Every show has its own, distinctive personality, so even if people have attended in the past, they won’t want to miss this fall’s opportunities. Visitors can expect to find an extensive selection of shabby chic home décor items, refinished antique furniture, vintage jewelry and more.

All these items will be attractively displayed in a rustic country setting. Davisburg is in northern Oakland County and its landscape is dotted with farms and horse barns. The location is rich with local history and Oberlin is thrilled that community groups will share in the success of the Michigan Antique Festival by participating in various activities.

The Holly Band Boosters will be assisting with parking at the festival as a fundraiser for their organization. The Ride for Autism group from Oakland County will also be fundraising along with the Springfield Township Fire Department whose members will be donating their off duty time for the cause.

The local American Legion will take part as will Troops Need Love Too, volunteer organization that collects non-perishable food, personal hygiene products and recreational items for currently deployed servicemen and women from the greater Oakland County region. Festival visitors are invited to donate items, pack a box and a write letter of thanks to servicemen and women.

“It is wonderful that the Holly/Davisburg community is so supportive of the Michigan Antique Festival and it feels great to give back by giving local groups the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for their worthy causes.”

Highlighted at this year’s festival will be the Michigan Craft Beer & Wine Garden and Pints for Preservation. Visitors can enjoy a variety of Michigan-made craft brews and local entertainment while supporting Pints for Preservation.

Visitors should plan to stay for the entire day or weekend in order to have time to fully explore all areas of the festival grounds including the:
