The “Last Saturday in April: Antique Event” will take place inside the historic town of Cumberland Gap on April 24, rain or shine. More than 30 vendors will line Colwyn and Lynn Avenues beginning at 10 a.m. This antique event will be the first in Cumberland Gap since 2019.

Vendors from Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia will give the event a regional flair. In addition to the antique vendors, the local shops will be open throughout town to provide all the opportunity to experience the offerings available in “the Gap” on a daily basis.

The event officially ends at 4 p.m., but the shops in town will remain open until at least 5 p.m. Remember, parking is always free in Cumberland Gap. There are also several local restaurants available to choose from including a local food truck, so you can dine in or take out.

After a day of antiquing, you might want to stay and enjoy the evening concert, YARN. Perhaps after such a long day, you should just spend the night at one of the in-town lodging options. We hope to see y’all soon in Cumberland Gap.
