RHINEBECK, N.Y. — Barn Star Productions and the Newtown Historical Society are collaborating on the Newtown Antiques Market, a one-day, outdoor antiques show June 21 in the historic community of Newtown, Connecticut.
The event will take place at the Fairfield Hills Campus facility in Newtown and will feature 100 exhibitors in an informal environment of tents and pop-up canopies, presenting a wide spectrum of antiques from early American furniture to fine art, ceramics, jewelry, stoneware, cast iron urns and garden furniture, architectural elements, weathervanes and folk art, sets of chairs, tables and clocks, among many other categories.
Newtown is located just minutes off route 84 and is accessible from many surrounding communities in the southwest corner of Connecticut including Danbury, Southbury, Woodbury and Redding.
This new collaboration between show and community group helps to meet the requests of dealers for a centrally-located summer show, while also aiding in the efforts of Newtown’s various community groups, as show manager Frank Gaglio explained.
“For months, our dealers have been asking for a show in June that is centrally located, cost effective and a one-day format where they do not have to commit to multiple days in the summer time,” said Gaglio. “The Newtown Antiques Market seemed to fit all of their criteria, plus benefitting the Newtown Historical Society was a great fit – but first and foremost will be the wonderful antiques our exhibitors will be bringing for sale so plan to spend the day.”
The show will also include participation of several community organizations, including the Newtown Firemen’s Association, Lions Club and Newtown Historical Society, creating a fun and festive day for everyone to enjoy rain or shine.
The Fairfield Hills Campus is located at Keating Farms Avenue and D.G. Beers Blvd. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission is $10. For more information, visit www.barnstar.com or www.newtownhistory.org or call 845-876-0616.
