A milestone celebration for lovers of antique and vintage
The Kyneton Antique & Vintage Fair is celebrating its 21st anniversary. It's a fair that is held annually on the first weekend in September and the Friends of the Kyneton Museum group are proudly hosting the "coming of age" of this special event.
Well-known and emerging vintage and antique dealers will be there selling their wares, with collections ranging from a thimble to a grandfather clock and everything in between.
The Antique & Vintage Fair is being held at Kyneton Town Hall and will be open from: Friday 1st September 5:00pm to 8:00pm Saturday 2nd September 10:00am to 5:00pm Sunday 3rd September 10:00am to 4:00pm
After all these years, at only $7 entry, it is still the best deal ticket in town!
On opening night, Friday 1st September, you can join in the celebrations of the 21st anniversary with a glass of Hanging Rock wine and light refreshments provided by the Friends of the Kyneton Museum, along with some live local music. It will be a great night for lovers of vintage and antiques.
During the day there will be light lunches available, including delectable baked goods and the ever-popular home-made soups at the Rotary Club of Kyneton Country Kitchen in the Richardson Room, which is inside the Town Hall.
The Kyneton Antique & Vintage Fair is the major fundraiser for the Friends of the Kyneton Museum, and partnering with the Rotary Club each year, makes it a wonderful community event. All funds raised assist with the conservation of the collection, as well as the development of new projects at the beautiful Kyneton Museum.
About the Kyneton Museum The Kyneton Museum Collection is a display of the social history of Kyneton and districts that reflects the lives of residents from early settlement to around the 1930s. The collection consists of approximately 9,000 items ranging from fine china, lace and furniture to agricultural equipment, wagons, carriages, costumes and saddles, tools and harnesses.
The historically significant collection reflects the lifestyles of the people from the district in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Many items demonstrate a way of life which has since disappeared and reflect on the slower pace and closer community ties of the time and place.
This is a fantastic collection of the region's history, which is well worth a visit at any time.
