*If Antiques You Seek, Try Downtown Chic*
Antiques of all types will fill historic Downtown Tucson on May 27, 2012,
as the Downtown Tucson Partnership and A Perfect Pantry launch a series of
summer antique fairs at the Old Pueblo Garage, located on Congress Street
east of Church Avenue.
The series will kick off on May 27, 2012, and will continue on the fourth
weekend of June, July and August. The fair will feature up to 100 vendors
from antique fairs across Arizona, and Downtown retailers will have their
wares on display and available for purchase. Many local Downtown merchants
will open their doors before, during and after the fair, and A Perfect
Pantry will provide an assortment of refreshments.
“It will be wonderful to introduce the antique community to all of the
amazing restaurant and retail experiences in Downtown,” said Michael Keith,
CEO of the Downtown Tucson Partnership. “We hope this becomes a regular
monthly event Downtown, and with the help of A Perfect Pantry we think we
can turn this into one of the largest Antique Fairs in Southern Arizona.”
The Downtown Antique Fair is one of the first events in what promises to be
fun-filled summer jam packed with activity in the heart of Tucson. Upcoming
events will also include scavenger hunts, penthouse parties, special movie
screenings and more.
Getting Downtown is easy. Enter from the north via Stone or 6th Avenues;
from the south via Stone or 6th Avenue, Broadway/Congress from the west or
the quick Toole Avenue detour from the east. Parking is still plentiful
with more than 15,000 parking spaces in Downtown. Patrons are encouraged to
park at the Pueblo Parking lot adjacent to the antique fair or at the
Pennington Street Garage, 110 E. Pennington St.
