MULLICA HILL, N.J. — The eighth annual June Festival of Antiques in Mullica Hill, New Jersey, is slated for June 14, 2014. Hosted by The Yellow Garage Antiques, the festival has been a popular event since its return in 2007.
Drawing dealers and attendees from throughout the Northeast and beyond, it has become one of the favorite shows in the Tri-State area. The event has averaged about 90 dealers
and 1,400 attendees per year.
Antiques in all categories and price ranges will be available. The show has an emphasis on Americana such as 18th and 19th century furniture, quilts, samplers, folk art, decoys, stoneware and redware, and items in old paint. Also offered are fine art, Victoriana, jewelry, dolls, glass and pottery, Orientalia, toys, garden accessories and the rare and unusual. The fairgrounds will be inundated with antiques presented by professional show dealers set up under four pavilions, plus many more outside on the lawn.
Showgoers of past years have found it to be large enough to fill the better part of the day as they enjoy making several trips around the venue to take in the vast collections that are available. There is great food available all day. And the 4-H girls have a horse competition adjacent to the show included in the admission. Once you leave the fairgrounds, the Mullica Hill Historic District is only one mile away. Known as “Antique Country,” the village has been an antiques shopping haven for decades.
This year’s festival will be held from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. rain or shine at the Gloucester County 4-H Fairgrounds on Route 77 S. (275 Bridgeton Pike), Mullica Hill, New Jersey. It is easily accessible from the New Jersey Turnpike Exit 2, I-295 and all Delaware River Bridges. Admission to the event is $6, discounted to $5 with show card; children under 12 are admitted free. There is unlimited free parking. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Harrison Township Historical Society.
