Williams Antique Show Expands to Colusa

Now in its 37th year, the tradition of the Williams Antique Show and Sale will continue; but with a few changes.

The Show which was established and hosted by the Sacramento Valley Museum has until now been held at the Old Williams Gymnasium on Museum grounds in Williams. On March 15 and 16 it will debut in its new home; the Main Exhibit Building at the Colusa County Fairgrounds.

A couple of years ago the City of Williams took over management of the event, but found that as the show continued to grow it would be necessary to find a bigger venue with more parking.

The city contacted Carolan Ferreria Meek, owner of Professional Events Services in Colusa and asked if she would be interested in taking it on and hosting it at the Fairgrounds. Ferreria Meek’s company, Professional Events Services, which has successfully produced the Colusa Holiday Faire for the past two years, felt she could meet the challenge of the antique show.

“I accepted the offer from the city of Williams to promote its event, but until being asked to do so I had never thought about taking it on,” she said. “The show has supported the museum and the city well over the years. It is an important event for the county as well,” said Meek. “I didn’t want to see the tradition die.”

Ferreria Meek said she was honored that the city entrusted her with the show and sale. “I don’t want to see it disbanded, and if I can help with the possible expansion of the event it is likely to benefit both the vendors and the patrons,” she said. Fereria Meek said the show had outgrown the old gym, and moving it to the bigger building with ample parking will be a huge benefit to its overall success.

The Williams Catholic Ladies will continue to provide food concessions. Ferreria Meek commented that she has already heard from many vendors who are excited to be moving to the new larger venue.

“I promise to uphold the standards and traditions of the show as set forth by Museum Director Kathy Manor and the Sacramento Valley Museum,” said Ferreria Meek.
