The Asheville Antiques Fair Asheville

Things are gearing up for the summer here at our Asheville Bed and Breakfast and I want to keep you all in the loop. If you are looking for a fun, informative and oh so intersting day out, I have your first August weekend well in hand.

The Asheville Antiques Show is one of the longest running antique fairs in the entire Southeast currently in its 64 year. The first year of this show was 1946. It has blossomed into one of the best attended and most prestigious affairs of its kind.

This year, the fair will be held on Friday, August 6, Saturday, August 7 from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. and finishing up the season Sunday, August 8th from 12 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
It will, as is the custom, be held at the Asheville Civic Center hosting more than 60 vendors as well as an Heirloom Road Show providing expert, spot on evaluations of your personal antiques. It also offers some valuable lectures on a variety of intersting subjects pertinent to antiques. Parking will be available next to the Civic Center in Civic Center Parking Deck.

This fair is owned and managed by The Vetust Study Club, Inc and has been responsible to date for the distribution of $167,000 to various community charities and in concert awarding more than $328,000 to the conservation, restoration and preservation of local historic projects. In total this fair has been responsible for $495,000 to the community of Asheville.

So, plan to attend. Not only will you have a wonderful time, see some cool antiques, learn something you might not know, perhaps enjoy a great lunch and be able to walk it off, but you will also be helping to make a positive difference to the very strained budgets of some great organizations and the work they do. Western Carolina Rescue Ministries, Meals On Wheels, and the Salvation Army to name just a few have all benefited in the past by this very fun community offering. Mark the date, bring your treasures for evaluation and let the games begin.
