The East Hampton Historical Society announces the highly anticipated return of the East Hampton Antiques & Design Show on the grounds of Mulford Farm, Saturday, July 16, through Sunday, July 17.
In celebration of its 100th Anniversary, the East Hampton Historical Society is thrilled to welcome back an All-Star cast of Honorary Chairs from past Antiques Shows for a very special VIP Preview Cocktail Party on the evening of Friday, July 15.
In addition to hobnobbing with design aficionados, the VIP Preview Cocktail Party also offers patrons an early buying opportunity from the extraordinary array of antiques, jewelry, textiles, collectibles, and timelessly chic furniture and accessories available at the East Hampton Antiques & Design Show. Ticket proceeds from the Preview Cocktail benefit the East Hampton Historical Society. “As we celebrate our Centennial,” said EHHS Executive Director Steve Long, “the Antiques Show is critical for our efforts to preserve and interpret our historic properties, provide vital history education for local students, and facilitate opportunities for the entire community to engage with the past.”
The East Hampton Antiques & Design Show is widely recognized as the premier antiques and design event on Eastern Long Island and a highlight of the East Hampton arts and social calendar. Both the Preview Cocktail Party and the Antiques & Design Show take place on the pastoral grounds of the Mulford Farm, located on James Lane in the heart of East Hampton Village. Maintained by the East Hampton Historical Society, this 3.5-acre property features a restored 17th-century farmhouse as well as several barns and outbuildings that are among the oldest on Long Island.
The East Hampton Antiques & Design Show continues to be well received by collectors and dealers alike. Its popular offerings of wares and art come from a diverse assembly of more than 50 antiques, and art dealers, housed in elegant white tents across the farmstead’s greensward.
The focus of the show is on vintage decorative items for the home and garden as well as art. Classic rattan and bamboo furniture, lighting, textiles, architectural elements, American and European country decorated furniture, Art Deco and Moderne, garden ornaments, wrought-iron accessories, industrial items, paintings, trade signs, period jewelry, weathervanes, and mirrors will be for sale. With a broad range of styles from classic to contemporary represented, there is truly something for everyone.
The 2022 East Hampton Antiques & Design Show is made possible in part by the generous support of media sponsor Veranda magazine, Citi Private Bank, and Landscape Details. The show is managed by Brian Ferguson Antiques of Massachusetts.

Show hours are Saturday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., On Sunday the show is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Mattitaco Food Truck will provide a food concession during the show.
