Newport Historical Society is thrilled to announce the in-person return of The Newport Show for 2022 after a two-year pandemic hiatus.
The Show is a long-running and beloved highlight of the Aquidneck Island summer season and is scheduled for July 30-31, 2022, with a gala preview party on the evening of July 29. The Show’s brand-new location is at The Audrain Middletown, 250 West Main Road.
Established in 2007, The Newport Show brings dealers of vintage and antique fine art, fashion, jewelry, and furniture to a single location to provide a two-day shopping experience with a philanthropic twist. The Show serves as a foundational fundraising event of the year for two worthy local organizations— Newport Historical Society and Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County—and has raised more than $3M to date from proceeds and sponsorships. This year’s presenting sponsor is the Audrain Automobile Museum, including Shelley and Nicholas Schorsch, Elizabeth and Bill Kahane, and Shirley and Michael Weil.
The Chair of The Newport Show, Anne Hamilton, commented, “We are really pleased to be able to return to an in-person Show in our 15th year. We are excited about the new location, and hope that everyone interested in antiques – to view or to buy — will visit.”
The show will run from 10am to 5pm on July 30 and 31, with a Gala Preview Party from 6pm to 9pm on July 29. To learn more about the Show and to purchase tickets or donate, visit TheNewportShow.com.
