Special Antique Events
While you can find a nice selection of antiques every day in downtown Arthur, at least twice a year we have special "gatherings."
Usually the first weekend in March and then again on the second weekend of November two large and well respected Primitives Shows bring their wares and followers to Arthur. People come from all over the country, literally, for the quality antiques offered at these shows.
Both the "Homesteaders on the Prairie" show and the "Gathering on the Prairie" show have their own followings and attract crowds for the quality and selection they offer, so come prepared to take home some findings. In addition a number of surrounding towns offer antique shows of various kinds on these weekends so you will have plenty to see and do. Come and plan to spend the day or longer, but these shows do fill up the area motels so you might want to make plans early.

November to verify dates.
