Historic Rugby, a restored Victorian village, will host thousands of visitors for the annual Antique Street Fair on June 21- 22, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The fair will include vendors throughout East Tennessee and the Cumberland Plateau.  In addition to the street vendors, the Rugby Commissary will be open with wares from 60 area artists and crafters.

“We welcome guests to the area each year to not only take part in the Rugby Antique Street Fair, but to learn about our ‘little hidden gem’ we call home,” said Zachary Langley, executive director of Historic Rugby.

“We hope visitors leave with an appreciation of our history and some once-in-a-lifetime treasures to begin or add to his or her cherished antique collection.”

During the two-day event, the public can browse among available vintage items including 18th to mid-20th century furniture, china and ceramics, glassware, books, tools, crocks, antique toys, linens and quilts, art and much more. Refreshments and food will be available at the street fair and inside the Harrow Café.  Admission to the event is free.

Guests can also observe the historic Chandler-Price letterpress in the restored 1880s Rugby Printing works and cast iron demonstrations.  Additionally, arts, crafts and vintage wares will be available at the village shops - Painted Rooster, Spirit of Red Hill and Rugby's newest shop, Missions Matter.
