First full weekend in April and October of each year.

The original show started in 1967 but now has become a collection of shows and includes several of the small towns around Round Top. It has become so popular that some people often refer to it simply as “Round Top”, after the town and show that started it all. Many shows start almost ten days prior to the Original Round Top Antiques Fair for what is now called “Preview Weekend”, but all shows end by the final Sunday.
