Big Show News!

Jenkins Management is proud to announce a new home for their long running Farmington Antiques Weekend- The Harwinton Fairgrounds. The dates will remain the second full weekend in June and Labor Day Weekend.(June 11-12 & September 3 & 4, 2011) Located the same distance of much travelled Route 4, the new location will provide a significant upgrade in facility and infrastructure for dealers and customers. The Harwinton Fairgrounds will feature over 100 indoor spaces with electricity, as well as plentiful room for outdoor vendors also with electrical service. “We fully expect our new home to capture the essence and spirit of the Polo Grounds, but with a significant upgrade in creature comforts for attendees and vendors” according to Jon Jenkins. “I know everyone raved about our clean port-a-potties, but I think we can all get used to the inconvenience of clean, modern, indoor restrooms.”
The decision to move to the new facility was “not made in haste” according to Steve Jenkins. “But the ability to offer a better facility, with more amenities for dealers and customers at a much lower price point was simply too much to pass up.” “The facility change will dramatically increase our ability to utilize resources for advertising and marketing. The costs of our old home along with the dependence on expensive rental tents were financially suffocating the business model for both the dealers and the promoter. Every effort will be made to insure that our customers will find our new home. The Harwinton Fairgrounds is also just a few miles from Rt 8, a main thoroughfare for customers travelling up from Fairfield County, Westchester County and the rest of the New York City area. This should cut over 40 minutes one way off the commute from New York.
Contracts, Cards and a new website are currently in production, with an expected mailing date by November 1. For information, please contact Jenkins Management at 317-598-0012 or
