Fall Antiques Fair – Negreni

5 – 8 October 2017 

The fair with a tradition of several centuries is held each spring on the second weekend of October, on the banks of the Crişul Repede river, in Negreni. The village lies on E60 road, almost halfway between Oradea and Cluj, 30 km from Sâncraiu. It’s similar to the Spring Fair, but it lies on a much bigger area, and this evidently means more merchandise too.   The fair consists of two parts: one resembles the general market, as known in Romania, they sell clothes, shoes, and other new items. The other part is antique lovers’ heaven, anyone can find a treasure in the wide variety of folk costumes, books, furniture, tools, painting, items designed from home weaved fabric, old tiles, etc. One could spend days wandering around this part of the market. The fair enjoys a large popularity with visitors from Hungary and all over Europe.
