The 40th annual Camden-Rockport Historical Society Antiques Show and Sale is finally returning to the Camden Hills Regional High School after a three-year Covid hiatus. This year, for the first time, the high school gym will be air-conditioned for our customers’ comfort. The show promoters have arranged for a large air-conditioning unit to be brought up from greater Boston to ensure that everyone will be able to enjoy the antiques show and shop in a cool environment. The antiques show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 23 and 24.
