The Newport Show: Antiques, Art & Exquisite Objects

There are many events in Newport, RI throughout the summer social season, but there’s one weekend event that has a distinguished reputation for luxury and style amongst the busy party schedule. That event is The Newport Show, a weekend of luxurious shopping while raising funds for its co-beneficiaries.

Established in 2007, The Newport Show (previously the Newport Antiques Show) is a weekend of pop-up shopping—but nothing presented is ordinary. Over 40 of the world’s leading dealers in fine art, fashion, jewelry and furniture display their unique wares. Some dealers feature antiques, some present mid-century modern furniture or contemporary pieces, but they all have one thing in common: everything available is exquisite.

“Visitors will recognize that the event is about representing beauty, design and utility,” explains Newport Historical Society’s Executive Director Ruth Taylor, “because great design is timeless. Whether you’re a fine art aficionado, a new collector of mid-century furniture or are always hunting for one-of-a-kind fashionable accessories, the Show is a not-to-be missed occasion.” 

The Newport Show is the main fundraiser for its co-beneficiaries, the Newport Historical Society and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County. Proceeds from sponsorships and ticket sales support Newport’s distinguished past and its historic future. To date, the Show has raised a total of $2.4M which is divided between these two worthy non-profits.

The Newport Show takes place at the St. George’s School Ice Rink, 375 Purgatory Road, Middletown, RI, and will run July 27 and 28, 2019; doors open at 10am. The weekend kicks off with the Gala Preview Party on Friday July 26, 2019 which runs from 6pm-9pm.
