The Newport Show is exploring the limits of virtual antique shows! You are invited to join us for a beautiful and entertaining online event with 26 of the world’s best antiques, art and exquisite object exhibitors. The Show will go live on July 24, 2020 and run through July 30, 2020. While many events and antique shows are going virtual this year, The Newport Show hopes to go beyond expectations. Working with John Smiroldo of Incollect and Antiques & Fine Art Magazine ‘The Newport Show’ will have an online platform for the exhibitors and beneficiaries, the Newport Historical Society and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County.

Anne Hamilton, The Newport Show Chair, who proposed the idea of a summer antiques show in Newport, and Diana Bittel, Show Manager since its inception in 2007 are both delighted the Show could take place, even if not in person. Diana Bittel had this to say about this virtual year; “I hope past show supporters will look at what our dealers are offering and jump right in and buy, buy, buy. I also hope to see them all next year when our world in back in order.”

The Newport Show will return next summer with a live event; mark your calendars for July 23rd – 25th 2021.
