In an abundance of caution, the 2021 Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville has been canceled. They’re taking precautions due to COVID-19 but plan to be back for the 2022 season.
“It was a difficult call to make but in the name of keeping our guests, sponsors, dealers, volunteers and other show partners healthy, the board determined that the 2021 Show should not happen,” said Bo Tyler, chairman of the board of the Antiques & Garden Show. “We are all disappointed, but are confident that in these uncertain times, it’s best to act with caution.”
If you’re not familiar with the Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville, it is the largest of its kind here in the US. They have more than 150 dealers and intricate gardens, making it truly a beautiful experience. It’s held at the Nashville Music City Center and usually attracts more than 15,000 attendees. Faith Hill, Martha Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow and Diane Keaton have all spoken at the event in the past. Although it’s a fun event, it’s also for a good cause with proceeds benefitting Cheekwood and ECON (Economic Club of Nashville) Charities.
Without this year’s show, they still want to raise money by asking attendees to make a contribution in lieu of a ticket. If you’re interested in doing that, you can do so here.
Stay tuned for more on the 2021 show, which will be chaired by Ashley Smith and Julia Spickard. Like their Facebook page for more announcements.
