As the Greenwich Historical Society’s premier annual fundraiser, Antiquarius celebrates the decorative arts, antiques, architecture and design with our annual House Tour, Holiday Boutique, and Antiques & Design Show
This year, we are adopting an online format featuring all the elements of Antiquarius you’ve come to enjoy, plus daily email inspiration from renowned designers and tastemakers, and lively panel discussions via Zoom from December 2-5, 2020
After careful consideration, the Greenwich Historical Society has decided to present all events virtually in order to keep public health a top priority this holiday season, while still celebrating our community’s commitment to home entertaining, design and décor during this festive time of year.
We invite all of Greenwich – long-time residents and newcomers alike, along with a new global online audience to share the joys of the season with us!
