(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) The Tri-State Antique Market returns to the Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds on June 6th with the rare opportunity to go antiquing with cicadas! As always the Market features an ever changing line up of 200 plus vendors selling a wide array of antique and vintage wares, but this time the Market will have the added bonus of being able to hunt for exotic treasures in a more exotic environment amongst a bevy of cicadas. It’s a once in a cicada’s life experience!

The Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds is located one mile west of exit 16 from I275 at the corner of US 50 and Hollywood Blvd and is within minutes of the Ohio and Kentucky borders. The fairgrounds is a 5 acre facility full of quaint, country charm complete with shaded groves and large open-air pavilions with many modern amenities including paved walks, contemporary restrooms, free parking and ample cicadas.

Tri-State Antique Market hours are from 7 AM to 3 PM ET with “earlybird” shoppers admitted during vendor set up at 6 AM. A walk-in $4.00 admission (over age 17) is charged at all times. Attended pets, children and cicadas are welcome for no charge. Over half of the Market’s vendors display indoors or under cover, so the event is held “rain or shine.”

Complete Tri-State Antique Market information, including detailed directions, area accommodations, and photos of past Market finds is available at and the Facebook page under Tri-State Antique Market. Additional details are available by phone from Aaron Metzger at (513) 702-2680 or Later 2021 Market dates are July 4, August 1, September 5, and October 3.
