The Canandaigua Classic Antique Show and Sale has a new home for its 25th year: Hotel Canandaigua. Browse quality antique dealers who will be displaying and selling their wares on Sunday, February 18 at Hotel Canandaigua, 205 Lakeshore Drive, Canandaigua from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The event is conducted in partnership with Kiwanis Club of Canandaigua.
“The Canandaigua Classic has had a noteworthy history of promoting the arts in Ontario County, funding a restoration of the barn at Granger Homestead and Carriage Museum and funding more than $140,000 college scholarship for students,” said show organizer Marianne Gallagher. “The show originally started up as a fundraiser for the Ontario Arts Council to help afford the rental for the art facility. It’s always carried the Canandaigua Classic name.”
In addition to checking out all the antiques, find out more about one of your own. From 9 to 11 a.m., H. Price Prazar will provide a verbal appraisal of antiques, books and collectibles for an extra fee.
This year’s show admission is $9 per person. Download a coupon for a $1 off at canandaiguaantiquesclassic.org. Food is also available throughout the day and there is plenty of free parking.
Some of the funds raised at the 2024 Canandaigua Classic Antique Show will help complete the Inclusion in Motion Playground in Canandaigua, a million-dollar playground for all abilities. The annual antique show also grants funds, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Canandaigua, to promote arts and cultural philanthropy and to foster visual and performing arts appreciation for the residents of Ontario County. To date the antique show has donated more than $125,000 to cultural events such as the Finger Lakes Music Festival, Cobblestone Arts Center, Bristol Valley Children’s Theater and the Plein Arts Festival in Canandaigua.
