This year’s theme, “A Sense of Place…” has attracted an impressive and entertaining lineup of speakers including British aristocracy, authors, designers, media personalities, a master floral design expert and perhaps even a Nashville celebrity or two. In addition to the informative lectures, our show floor features over 150 extraordinary antiques, art and horticulture dealers, magnificent gardens and one of the winter season’s most anticipated social events benefitting two beloved charities in our community.

The 2018 Antiques & Garden Show will once again be held in the entertainment epicenter of downtown Nashville, at the magnificent Music City Center. With attendees anticipated from 36 states and multiple countries, we’re expecting a sell-out crowd, so purchase tickets now!

2018 General Chairmen

We are honored to serve as the General Chairmen for such a tremendous event. 

This year’s theme is “A Sense of Place.” Quoting a definition we ran across, a sense of place is “a unique collection of qualities and characteristics that provide meaning to a location. Sense of place is what makes one home different from another, but sense of place is also what makes our physical surroundings worth caring about.” As this is how we deeply feel about our own homes, it was an easy choice, and one that we felt certain would resonate with our Keynote Speaker, Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, regarding his home, Althorp Estate. 

Our entire speaker lineup reflects this sentiment, and is a compilation of unbelievably talented and nationally recognized designers from around the country. Once again, the Show floor will be home to over 150 premier dealers and four spectacular gardens designed by some of the Southeast’s foremost landscape designers.

We are most grateful for and humbled by the generosity of our corporate sponsors, benefactors, and friends whose contributions are the foundation of our fundraising efforts for Cheekwood and ECON charities. We are thankful to this year’s Presenting Sponsor, ADAC, for their enduring friendship, as well as to Andrew Byrd and TVV Capital for their 28 years of continued support. We also want to thank the many volunteers who have worked countless hours to make this Show a success, and our families for their support, patience and love.  

During the cold and bleak winter season, we hope we can bring a touch of color and warmth to enliven and enchant your lives! We are delighted you are here!
