About the Show
The Thomasville Antiques Show Committee is pleased to present some of the country’s most prestigious dealers for the 30th annual Antiques Show & Sale. From February 22-24, 2019, these dealers will showcase antique furniture, paintings, rugs, jewelry, tableware, accessories and collectibles to suit the taste of the casual and the serious collector.
A black tie gala will kick-off the 30th Anniversary Thomasville Antiques Show & Sale on February 21, 2019. This benefactors' preview gives patrons the earliest opportunity to view and shop dealer booths for gifts and personal treasures while enjoying an elegant seated gourmet dinner.

The Foundation continues to provide funding for quality programs that enrich and assist children in Thomasville and Thomas County. Over $2,500,000 has been raised by the Thomasville Antiques Show Foundation to ensure that the children’s programs of Thomasville continue to thrive.
