Revised Dates for Fall Round Top Antiques Show 2020

New Dates for Fall Round Top Antiques Show are a month later.  The show is in line with the start of schools in Texas.  Being a month later it may be a little cooler!  If you have rolled you dates over from the Spring show that was cancelled make sure to contact your hosts.   Make your reservations during October 16-November 1, 2020.

Good news is most of these venues are outside in open air tents and fields and there are 20 miles of them!  The inside venues will be taking extra precautions to have safe distancing in place.   Everyone will be required to wear mask when safe distancing cannot be achieved.  So bring plenty of masks and hand sanitizers to have on hand.

New Dates for Fall Round Top Antique Show 2020 are October 16, November 1, 2020.  Make plans now by booking your rooms with us at Brenham House.  We are a small property with 5 rooms and we have taken new steps to keep our guests safe as well.  We serve out breakfasts during Round Top Antique Shows at 8:30 a .m. so our guests can take off early to shop.  We will have our breakfast tables space out for social distancing.  There is hand sanitizer out in common areas.  We take care to deep clean rooms.   We also use Micro Ban 24 hours on door knobs and surfaces.

Be respectful of others who are out shopping by keeping your social distancing and wearing a mask when needed.  Wear comfortable shoes for walking the fields.  Bring a hat and sunglasses.  Make sure you stay hydrated.  Comfortable cool clothes are a must.  Book your rooms for early dates to have less crowds.  A cross-body bag allows you to have your hands free for shopping.  Remember the show covers 20 miles and you can’t see it all in a few days.  Enjoy the part that you can cover then make your plans to come back in the Spring!

 

 

Fall Round Top Antique Festival

August 29th, 2014 by Susan Lopez

Exciting news for this years’ fall Round Top Antique Festival.  There will be 3 trolleys for both of the big weekends.  The trolleys will run a continuous loop during the high traffic days of the show

You will be able to park and ride the trolley to get around.  After your stay and you have made many purchases you can then take your car and pick up your items.  That is the strategy most of our guests use.  Ask your innkeeper for a map and times the trolleys will run.

This Fall Round Top Antique Festival covers six towns and is the largest antique show, in the United States.  Shopping begins September 21st and runs until October 5th, 2014.  All of the Brenham locals get out early to shop.  As soon as they see vendors setting up they are out shopping!  This way you miss the large crowds.  There is a lot of advertising for the last weekend, because that is when the Big Red Barn and Maurburger’s  Show opens.  These are great places to shop, but if you have other favorite places to shop you can go early and miss the large crowds.

Don’t forget to bring your walking shoes, comfortable clothes, phones with cameras, sunglasses, hat, snacks and bottle water.  After shopping all day you can come back to Brenham for dinner and get away from the crowds.  Brenham has great restaurants downtown.  Brenham’s downtown has Brenham Grill, BT Longhorn Saloon, Volare Italian Restaurant, Yumm, and  Smitty’s.  Also on Highway 290 Brenham has Chilies, Applebys, Los Cabos, Whataburger, Starbucks, Mc Donalds, and Dickies BBQ.

Plan to stay three to four days.  There is so much to see from high end English and French antiques to china, silver, yard art collections and crafts.  Grab your friends and make your plans now to get out for this year’s fall Round Top Antique Festival!  Then get ready to do it all over again in the Spring!
