Scottish Rite Bazaar VIP Night @ Scottish Rite Cathedral
Jul 19 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Come be a part of the first night ever of the first Scottish Rite Cathedral Antique and Vintage Bazaar! VIP Night gives you the opportunity to get a first look (and first purchase) of the 20+ vendors who will be at the weekend show. Enjoy wine, appetizers, music by the Joanitones, and tours of this extraordinary building! Built in 1917, the 102-year-old structure, in addition to being historic, is amazingly ornate and beautiful. SO MUCH is original, from the 165 light fixtures to the ornate molding and marble. You’ll be able to see in nooks and crannies that have otherwise been off limits for years. In doing so, you’ll also be helping save the building for future generations. Your $20 entry fee to the VIP event (and any other donations you may give) will go to help pay for maintenance and ongoing repairs in the building.

There is a lot of free parking near the building and all on street parking is FREE after
5 pm on Friday evening.
