The New Orleans Antiques Forum
Fancy Footwork
August 1–4, 2019 • The French Quarter

Experienced and novice antiques collectors gain valuable advice from experts across a range of specialties at this annual event. Each year's Antiques Forum presentations center on a theme related to a particular period, region, culture, or design motif.

The 2019 New Orleans Antiques Forum will “take steps” to explore topics including the depiction of animals in the decorative arts, the stylized feet of furniture and silver, the conservation of Dorothy’s ruby slippers, and more. Participants will have the opportunity to experience New Orleans at its best while learning from noted experts and enjoying the unique sights, sounds, and flavors of the region. 

Registration Information: Details on pricing, optional events, and special hotel rates. 

Schedule: Check the latest forum schedule to see the range of topics covered and the specialists who will present sessions.

Optional Activities: Enrich your experience with a preconference tour of historic sites and private collections and a closing jazz brunch. Guests must register for the forum to participate in the optional activities.

Dining Options: We offer an extensive list of restaurants and cafés within walking distance of THNOC and the conference hotel, as meals are not included in the forum.

Advisory Committee: The quality of the Antiques Forum's program depends in part on the gracious assistance of a network of experts.
