Western Reserve Academy Antiques Festival

When: Mon., Sept. 3 2012

More than 100 dealers from around the region converge on the Western Reserve Academy today for the annual Antiques Festival, bringing with them everything from pricey handcrafted furniture to inexpensive “smalls.” And there’s more to do than browse and yearn. Two experts from the Cleveland Museum of Art — curator of Greek and Roman art Michael Bennett, and senior librarian for research and public programs Louis Aldean — are among the speakers lined up to share their expertise. You’ll also find a classic car show, strolling Irish musicians, and walking tours of the Academy’s campus. (Plus, the eighth annual Taste of Hudson is taking place today from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. just up the street at First & Main, with live music, kids’ crafts, and tastings from more than 20 top restaurants; find details at tasteofhudson.com.) The Antiques Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $8 at the gate or via the website. Or cough up $15 for 8:30 a.m. early-bird admission and get first crack at the wares.

Price: $8
