The Folsom Historic District Association’s 47th Spring Antique Fair, is Sunday, April 21 on Historic Sutter St. from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m.

Thousands of shoppers from Reno to San Francisco will fill the four-block historic district for this popular regional event featuring more than 150 booths with a wide range of antique and collectible merchandise: glass, china, pottery and porcelain; American and European furniture; country, primitives and shabby chic; estate and vintage jewelry; watches and accessories; paper collectibles; prints and paintings; clothing and textiles; silver and silverplate; cast iron cookware; sports and movie memorabilia; and hand-crank phonographs and records.

“A tradition for almost 50 years, Historic Folsom’s bi-annual antique fairs draw collectors from a wide range of Northern and Central California cities as well as from Southern Nevada,” said Carole Berry of Twin Bridges Antique Productions, antique coordinator for the Folsom Historic District. “Free admission and free parking as well as free light rail passes are an added incentive to shoppers who often come early and bring a flashlight to this popular rain or shine event.”

Great food and live entertainment will be available throughout the four blocks of Sutter Street, along with the many great historic district businesses offering a wide selection of merchandise, food and services.

Local music favorites Proxy (formerly Captain and the Diva), featuring hits from the ’60s to present, will perform in the historic district’s new amphitheater from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Oscar Reynolds, Bolivian master flutist will perform all day near the Sutter Street Steak House at Scott and Sutter streets.

Antique Appraisals of family treasures or garage sale finds will be offered by local favorite appraiser Gary Cox, “The Antique Answer Man.”

Cox is well known locally for his work with the Crocker Museum, KVIE’s Central Valley Chronicles and the Folsom History Museum.

Verbal appraisals are $8 per item. Cox will be available as well to arrange for a formal appraisal of individual items or estates for insurance purposes or for sale. Appraisals are available from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. near the Folsom History Museum.

Collectors may park in the historic district’s multi-story parking garage (funds raised support local nonprofits) or for free in any historic district parking lot. Handicapped parking is available in the lot at Wool and Sutter (accessed from Leidesdorf and Wool near the chamber of commerce.)

Shoppers may also take advantage of free Light Rail passes, available from participating Sutter Street merchants, compliments of Regional Transit. Admission to Historic Folsom’s Antique Fair is free.

Folsom’s Antique Fairs are promoted by the Folsom Historic District Association with assistance from Twin Bridges’ Antique Productions.
