“Benicia Peddler’s Fair thanks the community for voting us the Solano County Event of the Year for 2015!”
This outdoor event began in 1963 with a few collectible and antique stores displaying their items on tables outside St Paul’s Church. It has grown into over 325 select antique and collectible dealers from all over the country and 25,000+ loyal fans and many friendly volunteers. They now transform the entire 11 blocks of First Street in the historic town of Benicia with beautiful views of the Carquinez Strait. The show offers visitors an opportunity to examine and purchase items that include period furniture, decorative antiques, vintage textiles, pottery, porcelain, Depression glass, art, jewelry, clocks, and much more. Special activities have included appraisals by Steve Yvaska, noted Bay Area journalist and the Kids Korner.
Each year, thousands of dollars are raised to preserve the historic St. Paul’s Church, a California historic landmark. In addition, ten percent of the proceeds are donated to community organizations. Come enjoy the 2016 Peddler’s Fair, Saturday, August 13.
