The fourth annual “Days of the Pioneer” Antique Show will feature the finest selection of 18th and 19th century American antiques. An extensive collection of some of the finest dealers hail from across the United States, waiting a year to participate in this first class event. This year’s affair is set for Friday and Saturday, September 11-12, 2015, and will be held on the picturesque grounds of the Museum of Appalachia. “Days of the Pioneer,” a premier antique show, continues to be overwhelming success for antique enthusiasts from all over the country. Rosalie, a faithful follower of this event, visits each year from Oregon: “The ‘Days of the Pioneer’ Antique Show is the Best I’ve ever been to, no other antique show can compare! I travel 2000 miles every year just for the show…find the most one of a kind, wonderful antiques that I will treasure forever…look forward to the great Museum of Appalachia each year also, best Museum I’ve ever been to!!” During the show, historic demonstrations take place in select locations throughout the village, where tradesman operate some of the Museum’s antique facilities; pounding away on the iron forge in the blacksmith shop, slicing logs on the tractor-driven sawmill, and grinding cane with a mule-driven mill, for guests to experience up close. Settle in and listen to old-time, mountain musicians as they pick away on some of the historic cabin porches, playing traditional Appalachian music; or stop and visit with either Civil or Revolutionary War re-enactors, dressed in full garb and regalia, as they stroll the grounds. The Museum's quaint restaurant serves a hot country style Southern lunch, fresh‐from‐the‐garden vegetables, and mouth‐watering home-made desserts; enjoy local food vendors with choices such as country ham & biscuits, southern BBQ, chuck wagon cooking, homemade ice cream and Dutch oven cobbler. Discounted tickets are available through August 24th and may be purchased at the Museum or online at www.museumofappalachia.org. Admission to the Antique Show includes a tour of the entire Museum complex which encompasses 30 plus log cabins, exhibit halls, farm animals, and heirloom gardens, surrounded by hand-split, cedar rail fences and open, rolling meadows. The Museum is located 16 miles north of Knoxville, one mile east of I-75, Exit 122. For additional information, call 865-494-7680 or visit the website, www.museumofappalachia.org
