Westfield Antique Show turns 75

WESTFIELD – The region’s longest continuously running antique show is just around the corner and ready to celebrate a major milestone.

This year, the Annual Westfield Antique Show, sponsored by the Chautauqua County Historical Society, will be celebrating its 75th consecutive year. And just like in past years, there’s going to be a wide variety of items on display and available for sale.

This year’s Antique Show will be held July 20 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and July 21 (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at Westfield’s Eason Hall. The event will feature antique furniture, dining sets, glassware, silver, jewelry and much more. More than 20 different dealers will attend from both the Western New York Region as well as from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Connecticut and Indiana.

In 1938, Doc and Edis Shelkey organized the first Westfield Antique Show. The two were well-known local antique dealers during that era and the event was so well-attended they decided to hold it each year. Since then the show has become an annual tradition in Westfield.

Admission for the Westfield Antiques Show is $5 for both days. Free parking is available in the municipal lot on Elm St. (within half a block of Eason Hall). Free street parking is available on all streets surrounding Moore Park. All show venues are within one block surrounding Moore Park (corner of Routes 20 and 394).
