Announcement from the Christie Antique & Vintage Show

Following the closure of the Christie Antique & Vintage Show for the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) undertook an operational review of the show and our conservation area experiences.

Our analysis shows costs are increasing, while attendance is very much dependent on weather for this outdoor show. More importantly, over the past two years HCA has seen an unprecedented surge of public interest in enjoying our conservation areas. HCA memberships grew from 6,000 in 2019 to over 12,000 in 2021, and daily visitation numbers are also up across our properties. At Christie Lake Conservation Area, people enjoy beach time, boating, hiking, biking and picnicking. Closing off the park to some of those activities in order to prepare and host large events, like the Christie Show, is simply now too hard to justify.

As a result, HCA has made the difficult but necessary decision to cease operating all future Christie Antique & Vintage Shows.

HCA will still welcome smaller third-party events, ensuring we are always providing the access to the natural areas and recreation our visitors are expecting, at this new and unprecedented level.  

The Hamilton Conservation Authority thanks all of our dealers, vendors, suppliers, patrons, staff and everyone else involved with putting on the show for more than 30 years. We had an incredible run and wish everyone all the best in the future.
