Lancaster County Carriage & Antique Auction 2019

« All Events

Lancaster County Carriage & Antique Auction is known for its fine carriages; great selection of miniature horses; and harness, tack, and carriage appointments. It also offers one-of-a-kind antiques, furniture, and high-quality quilts and crafts. An attractive part of the auction is the sale of annuals, perennials, roses, flowering shrubs and bushes, shrubbery, ornamental grasses, and trees. A team of auctioneers is busy taking bids under several tents and in the field.

The food tent is a highlight for auction goers as they take breaks from the hustle and bustle of the bidding. The delicious food is very popular since much of it is prepared fresh on the auction grounds.
