The City of Rockdale is expanding its citywide garage sale by adding the two-day Rockdale Antiques Fair to the annual event. The overall event is expected to include more than 150 sellers and antique dealers in downtown Rockdale and throughout the city.
Rockdale is located at the heart of the Central Texas Triangle on US 79 within one hour drive time of Waco, Austin, Round Rock and Bryan-College Station.
Anyone interested in more information about the event or in securing a sellers space at the Antique Fair can visit the City’s tourist Website, www.RockdaleTourism.com.
The Fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Wolf Park in downtown Rockdale on Friday, Sept. 7, and Saturday, Sept. 8. The garage sales will be held at the fair site and throughout the community on Saturday, Sept. 8 and Sunday, Sept. 9. Maps of the fair site and garage sales locations throughout the city will be available at Wolf Park during the antiques show and at merchants throughout the city during the three-day event.
City officials said that over the past several years, the garage sale has attracted people to Rockdale from throughout Central and North Texas because they enjoy the thrill of discovering items that they might otherwise never have seen. During that time, event producers received many suggestions to add a formal antiques show to the mix. As a result, City officials are planning to expand the event in terms of garage sales vendors and antique vendors on a yearly basis.
