Since 1988, the Christie Antique & Vintage Show has been attracting dealers and buyers from across Canada and the United States. In its nearly 30 year history, the show has grown to be Canada’s largest and most favourite antique show.
Although, Christie Lake Conservation Area played host to the show since its inception, the Hamilton Conservation Authority did not acquire the show until 2010. Since then, the show has continued to thrive and sees roughly 10,000 shoppers each spring and fall.
In 2014, the show began to transition from the Christie Antique Show, to the Christie Antique & Vintage Show. The change in name, is to recognize the important role vintage items have played and will continue to play at the show and within the industry.
Hundreds of Canada’s top antique and vintage dealers display and sell an unparalleled variety of treasures. With 10 acres of items waiting to be discovered, there are pieces to please both the novice and the most experienced collector. Furniture, architectural antiques, stoneware, Native artifacts, folk art, rugs, jewelry, sports memorabilia, scientific instruments, textiles, cut glass and more! If you can imagine it, you can find it in one of the 1,200 collecting categories featured at the show!
The Christie Antique & Vintage Show takes place twice annually, on the Saturday after Victoria Day in the spring, and the Saturday after Labour Day in the fall.
