If Antiques You Seek, Try Downtown Chic

May 16, 2012

Antiques of all types will fill historic Downtown Tucson on May 27, 2012, as the Downtown Tucson Partnership and A Perfect Pantry launch a series of summer antique fairs at the Old Pueblo Garage, located on Congress Street east of Church Avenue.

The series will kick off on May 27, 2012, and will continue on the fourth weekend of June, July and August. The fair will feature up to 100 vendors from antique fairs across Arizona, and Downtown retailers will have their wares on display and available for purchase. Many local Downtown merchants will open their doors before, during and after the fair, and A Perfect Pantry will provide an assortment of refreshments.

“It will be wonderful to introduce the antique community to all of the amazing restaurant and retail experiences in Downtown,” said Michael Keith, CEO of the Downtown Tucson Partnership. “We hope this becomes a regular monthly event Downtown, and with the help of A Perfect Pantry we think we can turn this into one of the largest Antique Fairs in Southern Arizona.”

The Downtown Antique Fair is one of the first events in what promises to be fun-filled summer jam packed with activity in the heart of Tucson. Upcoming events will also include scavenger hunts, penthouse parties, special movie screenings and more.

Getting Downtown is easy. Enter from the north via Stone or 6th Avenues; from the south via Stone or 6th Avenue, Broadway/Congress from the west or the quick Toole Avenue detour from the east. Parking is still plentiful with more than 15,000 parking spaces in Downtown. Patrons are encouraged to park at the Pueblo Parking lot adjacent to the antique fair or at the Pennington Street Garage, 110 E. Pennington St.
