Lambertville and New Hope host their Annual Art & Antiques Weekend, October 13 and 14. Many stores will feature special sales, offers, and merchandise expressly for the weekend event. So if you’ve been looking for that perfect piece for your home or office, or a one-of-a-kind gift for the person on your holiday list who has everything, there’s never been a better time to check out the crown jewels of the River Towns!
A listing of the participating venues will be provided at The Delaware River Towns Chamber office at 77 Bridge Street in Lambertville, the gateway to the event. Red (for Antiques) and Yellow (for Art) Flags will be displayed outside each of those venues. Many will also feature refreshments, from cider to wine, cookies to cheese.
In addition to the shopping, there will be live art shows with artists painting street and canal scenes plein aire and live music performances. The weekend also marks the conclusion of the Outside the White Cube exhibit where paintings from 24 local artists can be viewed and bid on at the New Hope Arts Center.
