About

The Winter Antiques Show marks its 64th year as the most prestigious art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring the “best of the best” from Antiquity through the present. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show provides new and established collectors, curators, dealers, and design professionals with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by 70 exhibitors. One-third of the Show’s exhibitors are specialists in Americana, with the rest featuring English, European, and Asian fine and decorative arts.

“This fair is multiplicitous in ways that few others are anymore…with an ardent mix-it-up spirit that was once called eclectic and is now called postmodern.”
—Holland Cotter, The New York Times

Every object exhibited at the Winter Antiques Show is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of 160 experts from the United States and Europe. The strict vetting regulations and the vettors’ expertise ensure that buyers can purchase with confidence.

The Winter Antiques Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization in the South Bronx. East Side House’s programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. All revenues from the show’s general admissions and the net proceeds from the Opening Night Party and other events go to East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget. No part of sales made by exhibitors is received by East Side House.
