This year’s event includes a series of exhibit vignettes entitled "Curating the Future: Trends in Collecting Today," presented by the Newport Historical Society, which will showcase objects from the NHS collection.

General admission to the show is $15 per person or $20 for a three-day pass, which includes a daily lecture and the opportunity to browse and shop among the country’s most exclusive antiques dealers.

A free shuttle to and from St. George’s will depart hourly on the half hour from the southwest parking lot of Newport Grand from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

On Sunday, July 24, international fine art, antique and jewelry specialists from Freeman’s will be available to examine objects and provide specific expertise about the item’s value during the special event What’s It Worth. Admittance to What’s It Worth requires a special admission ticket that costs $30 for one antique or $50 for two. This includes general admission for one attendee to the show.

Proceeds will benefit the Newport Historical Society and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County.
