Carriage & Antique Auction Draws Locals And Visitors Alike
Big Auction. Little Town. Great Community Spirit.
Our 17th Annual Lancaster County Carriage & Antique Auction is just around the corner–scheduled to take place next week! Thousands of people, both locals and tourists, attend this one-of-a-kind experience. The auction takes place at 3:30pm on Thursday, June 23rd and begins again at 8am on Friday, June 24th.
Not-to-miss activities include authentic, freshly prepared food at the Amish Haystack Dinner, spirited bidding on antiques and treasures, ranging from quilts and heirlooms to plants and miniature ponies, and rows and rows of antiques which will be displayed in the picturesque fields of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania.
Proceeds from the sale benefit the Bird-in-Hand Volunteer Fire Company, and the community teams up with firefighters to help run the auction, keeping things efficient and organized. Purchases from locals and visitors help to ensure that we can continue to provide fire protection services to the Bird-in-Hand community and surrounding areas, and are very much appreciated.
Fire Company President Tim Hoerner noted, “When there is a crisis, the community depends on the Fire Company, and the firemen depend on the community to help with fundraising efforts to keep their equipment and training up-to-date. It’s a win-win for everyone.” This statement is certainly accurate–and attendees and volunteers leave the auction each year feeling satisfied and happy, having supported a good cause. Please join us to experience this incredible event in person. Hope to see you there!
