      The Liberty (NC) Antiques Festival is held twice a year (April and September) on a farm off of Highway 421 south of Greensboro, NC. The outdoor event features approximately 400 antiques dealer representing more than 25 states. This is a Friday-Saturday event open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. Admission is $5 per person.

      For the antiques and collectibles fan, I found this to be a great event. Whatever category of antique you collect will, mostly likely, be represented here. Crafts are not allowed.

      This is pure antiques and collectibles. My observation was that primitive and rustic items seemed to be the strongest category represented, especially furniture. While some booths clearly revealed that the dealer was a specialist in a certain area, most offered a wide variety of items with the feel of general antiques shops.

      The festival is set on rolling pasture land so be prepared to walk up and down inclines. However, I did not detect holes or uneven areas that would present a safety hazard. Plan on 5-6 hours ...

      • depending on the speed of your gait and how meticulously you go through the booths. As with any outdoor event, you will have to endure the portable toilet experience; but, they were numerous enough and distributed sufficiently to accommodate the crowd.

        There are several food booths; most sponsored by local organizations. The variety and price reflects the typical scenario of similar events in the region. Parking is adequate and the heavy rains on the day I attended did not create any mud issues.

        I recommend bringing cash if you plan on buying. The dealers seem willing to negotiate on prices, especially when the deal will be closed with cash. As with most shows, the later it gets on Saturday, the more negotiating is possible. However, if you really want an item, do not assume it will be there later a mistake my wife and I made.

        For the beginning or experienced collector, this event is a day well-spent. Be prepared however you will be tired at the end of the day!
