It is estimated over 40,000 dealers, collectors and retail buyers attend this event each year.


We will also be hosting Lang's FREE Outdoor Sporting Show adjacent to the Discovery Auction site, which will include a wide range of high quality sporting and antiques dealers from all over the US.

For those that are not familiar with the annual week-long buying event in Madison/Bouckville - It is a series of outdoor shows (big & small, garages, lawns, barns, etc.) along a two mile stretch of Route 20 in central New York's "antiques row" of Mom & Pop and group shops. 1,000+ (nobody really knows how many) antiques and collectibles dealers (and locals looking to clean out their attics and basements), set up in numerous hayfields, on professional show fields, and on residential lawns. This is definitely "farm country" for those who are not familiar with the area. These shows start setting up the day after the Discovery auction, and continue opening on a staggered schedule with different shows opening almost every day. The shows run until the following Sunday (when the collectors and dealers go home and the farmers get their fields back).


It's a scenic drive to this upstate NY location, no matter which direction you come from. The Discovery auction is held in a large permanent pavilion, so it's rain or shine. There will be food available, a large free parking area, full service RV and tent camping, Wi-Fi, children and dogs are welcome, and there's fishing within minutes in any direction (and don't forget the adjacent Free Antiques & Collectibles Show - free dealer booths, free to the public).


Preview: 8:00am-10:00am

Auction Start: 10:00am



The auction pavilion is next to the Cider House Campgrounds which offers a modern bath house with flush toilets and showers, vending machines, free WiFi, large parking area, and full service RV and tent sites with reasonable rates - even a playground!

If you decide to stay at the campgrounds or other local accommodations, please make arrangements immediately. All local motels/hotels are booked months in advance, so please do not wait.
