Each summer since 2007, the St. George’s School Ice Rink has been transformed into an upscale shopping venue during the Newport Antiques Show. It’s a weekend event that has become a high point for the social season and a not-to-be-missed opportunity for fine art aficionados.
This year the Show will continue its reputation for luxury but it adopts a new name, The Newport Show, to better reflect its diverse roster of over 40 dealers. Attendees can again browse for antique furniture, fine art, jewelry and other unique vintage accessories, but they can also anticipate discovering a series of modern objects such as photographs and mid-century art.
The Newport Show will again be held at the St. George’s School Ice Rink, 375 Purgatory Road, Middletown, RI, and will run July 28 and 29, 2018; doors open at 10am. The weekend kicks off with the Gala Preview Party on Friday July 27, 2017 which runs from 6pm-9pm.

As the main fundraiser for its two beneficiaries, the Newport Historical Society and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County, the Show has raised a cumulative total of $2.2M supporting the city’s distinguished past and its historic future.
