Amherst NH - Car Show & Swap Meet

Werner Carlson the owner and proprietor of the Amherst NH Car Show and Swap Meet passed away
in November of 2014. We are all sad to hear of his passing, he was a very accomplished person in
many different fields.

The family at this point has decided not to open the show for the 2015 season. Hopefully
they will find a way to re-open the event in the future as it will be sorely missed.

See the letter to vendors below.

LETTER TO VENDORS

March 4, 2015


To our Amherst Auto Show Community,


We have been working hard to open for the 2015 season, looking at many different options.
However as April quickly approaches, we now regret to inform you that we will not be able
to open the show for the 2015 season.  We will be issuing refunds to the 2015 prepaid
dealers.  At this time, we do not know what the future holds for Werner's "field of dreams"
and whether the business will re-open in 2016.


Thank you for your loyalty, support and kindness over the many decades that we have been
in business.  You the dealers, have made the field a special place for us.  We especially
thank you for your patience, prayers and support over the last few months.


Sincerely,


Elna Carlson

The Amherst, New Hampshire Antique Auto Show is held on the last Sunday of the month
from April through October. It has been held for over 50 years, initially in conjunction
with the Amherst Outdoor Antiques Market, which was held each Sunday in the same fields.

Eventually the Antiques Market moved to another location, but the Antique Auto Show has
continued on in the same location on the last Sunday of the month. The location in southern
New Hampshire has approximately 30 acres and about 500 flea market spaces in a country
setting. The show starts early with a lot of activity beginning before dawn. Attendance
varies considerably with the weather forecast, some days 7 AM is too late to get in to
spectator parking. After some of the early arrivals have left there is room for the
second wave of attendees at around 9 o'clock.

The Antique Auto Show was started in 1960 in conjunction with NEMAC (North East
Massachusetts Antique Auto Club), a local antique auto club that is still in existence.
The show attracts vendors and participants from all of the New England states.

galleries. Please add a comment to the image if there is a mistake in identification so it
may be corrected.
