27th Annual Antiques & Collectibles Faire

Celebrate Labor Day with your family and friends at the Ocean County Historical Society’s Antiques and Collectibles Faire on Saturday, August 31st, on the grounds surrounding the museum on 26 Hadley Ave and the Ocean County Parking Garage on Madison Ave in Toms River.

Join the fun as you shop for antiques and collectibles as well as items crafted by a local wool spinner, basket maker and decoy carver. Buy a 50/50 raffle ticket sponsored by OCHS. Bring your antiques for appraisals by Art Kravetz, Ben Pulcrano and Cole Ferry. Enjoy morning performances by musicians from the Music Academy in Toms River, followed by vocal and guitar performances by Sal Aversano in the afternoon. Visit the Artists’ Garden to purchase a favorite painting from an Ocean County artist. View vintage autos and buy a raffle ticket to hopefully win a 1965 Mustang. Buy books and have them signed by author Linda Barth. Watch a Civil Ware re-enactment. Savor breakfast and lunch foods prepared by our food vendor from 4-Bee’s Polish Deli and delicious baked goods made by OCHS volunteers. Tour the OCHS museum and its current exhibitions.

Come early (9:00 a.m.) and stay late (4:00 p.m.) for an enjoyable day, rain or shine!

Great little place to spend a couple of hours to learn about the history of Ocean County. Also to learn about how the towns came about and the people who started them.
