Thank you to everyone who supported our 14th annual auction. It was finally a legitimate mud sale! Despite crazy weather conditions and other obstacles, our community came together to make this event happen. Heartfelt thanks to the amazing men and women who graciously poured their energy and sweat into running this auction! If you have photos, comments, or suggestions that you would like the share with the auction committee, please forward to firstname.lastname@example.org See you in 2014!

A wonderful treat is in store for the community and auction-goers on Thursday evening, June 27, 2013. Experienced cooks from the Valley Forge Black Pots and Susquehanna Iron Masters, chapters of the International Dutch Oven Society, are partnering with the Auction Food Committee to offer a tasty meal starting at 4:00 pm.
Menu: baked chicken, scalloped potatoes, cowboy beans, creamed corn, fresh tossed salad, and cobbler for dessert.
$12 adult meal / $4 children ages 3-10
Making food over open fires on the auction grounds is a delicious history lesson for young and old alike. It will be a novel experience for families to bring their children to share in this unique meal since this style of cooking has largely disappeared in our area. We are expecting hundreds of hungry people who relish the adventure of eating foods prepared in the old-time Dutch oven pots. This brings pioneer cooking back to life!
The 14th annual Carriage & Antique Auction on Friday, June 28, 2013 is shaping up as a main event in Lancaster County for equine enthusiasts, antique collectors, and families who enjoy a day in the country. There is something for everyone, which helps the auction grow. Last year there were over 3,000 attendees (including 1,125 bidders). Six auctioneers were busy from 8:00 a.m. until almost 6:00 p.m. selling high-quality goods.
As auction consignors and attendees from various states enjoy the day in Bird-in-Hand, they are benefitting the Bird-in-Hand Fire Company. The auction's success provides the Fire Company with financial resources to give excellent fire protection to the community.
Consignments will be accepted today (Thursday) until 4:00pm. The Chuckwagon Dinner will be served beginning at 4:00pm (served until it's gone!) The Early Bird Auction will begin at 5:30 and go until about 8:00pm. You can get your bidder numbers today also! Stay tuned for announcement :)
Consignments will be accepted 8:00am-8:00pm today (Thursday, 6/26/13). We appreciate your patience as we deal with the aftermath of a storm on the auction site. If you know anyone willing to help with some physical labor to take pressure off of folks who were up all night, please send them to the auction office. Thanks!
A special auction block will run Thursday evening to benefit the 12-year old daughter of one of our firefighters. She is waiting for a kidney transplant. Donations for this block can be dropped off Wednesday 8a-8p and Thursday 8a-3p. Click here for more info.
