History of Annual Holiday Antique Show & Sale

© Green Bay & De Pere Antiquarian Society, Inc.

Our first event in 1957 was called “Antique Show & Sale” and was held in the Walnut Room at the Hotel Northland. It was chaired by Mrs. E. F. Hasbrook and J. B. Gueinzius. That first show featured six dealers. Admission was 50 cents. The show remained in the Walnut Room for the first three years, and then expanded to the Crystal Ballroom from 1960-1968. Each show was titled a different theme: “Gems of Antiquities”, “Romantic Past”, “Lavender and Old Lace”, “Treasures of Old”, “Heritage Harvest”, and “Vintage Vignettes”.

In 1969 the show, named “Old Green Bay Days”, moved to the Riverside Ballroom and stayed at that site until 1984.

 In the ensuing years, the event has been held these Green Bay venues:
Cowles Estate (1976 Bicentennial Celebration)
 Downtowner Motel
