On Friday and Saturday, September 14-15, 2018, the Museum of Appalachia will celebrate its 6th annual “Days of the Pioneer” Antique Show. This two-day event features the finest selection of 18th and 19th century antiques from over 60 of the nation’s preeminent dealers.

Museum President Elaine Meyer says, "With the 65-acre Museum of Appalachia as a backdrop, attendees can tour the Museum and see thousands of early American artifacts in their natural setting, and then have the opportunity to purchase similar items from some of the best antique dealers in the country.”

Held on the grounds of the Museum of Appalachia, the event also features mountain music, Revolutionary and Civil War encampments, and traditional craftsmen demonstrating pioneer skills. Guests will enjoy activities such as sawmilling, blacksmithing, sorghum making, spinning, weaving, and more.

Admission to the Antique Show includes a tour of the Museum mountain farm and village, which contains some three-dozen historic log structures, exhibit halls filled with thousands of Appalachian artifacts, gardens, and free-range farm animals.
