Christmas in Smithfield will take place Saturday, December 5 from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 6 from 12:00 noon until 5:00 p.m.
The Antiques Show: Held at the Smithfield Center (220 N. Church Street), the show will feature quality antiques dealers from Maryland to Florida – plus the nearly 30 antiques and gift shops that call Smithfield home – all dressed up for the season.
Starting today, you can buy the Christmas in Smithfield “Antiques Show & Both Homes Tours” tickets at the Visitor Center (319 Main St. – 9 AM to 5 PM). Sales began online last night. More than half of these tickets have been sold! This ticket includes all six homes on tour – the regular Saturday/Sunday tour and Saturday night’s Candlelight Tour – and the Antiques Show.
Spots on the Candlelight Tour are very limited. If the Show & Both Tours tickets sell out, the Candlelight will be completely full and no more Candlelight tickets will be available.
After a week – or if the Candlelight Tour sells out – the Antiques Show (discounted price = $4) and Antiques Show / Day Homes Tour combination tickets (discounted price = $20) will become available online and at the Visitor Center.
