Annual Lewes Outdoor Antiques Show Set for August 5 — 54 Years of Discovering Treasures!

The Lewes Historical Society is celebrating the 54th Anniversary of its Outdoor Antiques Show on August 5, 2017, at The Lewes Historical Society Campus at 110 Shipcarpenter Street, Lewes, Delaware. The show begins at 9:00am and lasts until 4:00pm. General admission is $5.00 to be paid at the gate, and children under 12 are free. The proceeds benefit the Society and are used in educational and preservation programming.

High quality antiques dealers participate in the show, featuring 18th century to early 20th century antiques. All pieces are authentic and represent a wide range of prices. There is something for every taste and every level of collecting sophistication at the show.  Enjoy festive live music and delicious food.

Unique this year will be a tasting of historic iced chocolate drinks in the Midway Schoolhouse #178.  Enjoyed by our 18th century forebearers, the historical-based, savory treat gets a modern update in an iced version. There is no extra cost for this program but historic chocolate products will be for sale.

“This Antiques Show is a Lewes institution. Many families plan their vacation time at the beach around this event. The antique dealers and visitors comment that they enjoy the traditional feel of the event as well as the ambiance of an outdoor show,” says Lewes Historical Society Executive Director, Mike DiPaolo.
