Admission is $5 Friday-Sunday and parking is free. Don’t forget, this is a fundraiser, so all the proceeds go to Friends of the Fork, Inc. who are committed to serving the local community.

We’re really excited about bringing this caliber of show to the village and we have reaped a harvest of quality dealers this year who sell an authentic mix of items you can’t find anywhere else. We are proud of the rich history from where this show originates, from our faithful dealers, some who set up with the original owners Bruce & Marty Hunt, to the loyal and new customers that support our cause.  .  Leiper’s Fork has a huge following of folks that love to come out, support our events and visit our community. What’s even better, they’re giving back to a community that hasn’t always been what it is today - meaning, we still have some local folks that struggle. Sometimes putting food on the table for their family, buying school clothes or paying the electric bill is tough – especially if it’s due to health reasons, disability or loss of a job.
