T wenty-five years ago, the landscape of Texas Highway 2 3 7 i n F a y e t t e County changed forever when in 1997 veteran antique dealers John Sauls and Ed Gage founded Marburger Farm Antique Show on a 43-acre defunct cotton farm on the west A QUARTER CENTURY OF MARBURGER FARM side of Round Top. Now, thousands of visitors — including world-class designers, celebrities, and innovators like Kelly Wearstler and Liz Lambert — pilgrimage to line up for opening day. Once the cowbell rings bright and early on opening morning, it's a mad designer dash through the 11 historic small-town buildings and oversized tents filled with more than 350 vetted national and international dealers who arrange magazine-worthy vignettes of antiques, art, and vintage booths. An exciting new era has arrived for Marburger. Last year, the show, which had been helmed by the Mebus and Ferguson families for years, was acquired by a group led by Brook Partners, a Dallas-based real estate development firm that owns, operates, and founded Dallas Art Fair and Fashion Industry Gallery. At the time of the acquisition, Brook Partners CEO Kelly Wearstler at Marburger HGTV's Grace Mitchell, Jasmine Roth at Marburger John Sughrue told PaperCity, "We intend to preserve the DNA and heritage of the Marburger experience while building on the success of the show to add layers of new opportunities." Gates open Tuesday, March 29, at 8 am, for Tailgate Tuesday for early admission t i c k e t h o l d e r s ($40, tents open at 9 am); general admission tickets ($15) allow entry at 2 pm Tuesday, March 29, through Saturday, April 2.
