22nd Annual Elegant and Depression Glass

Show and Sale

The Fairgrounds Nashville on July 15-16, 2023


The Elegant and Depression Glass Show will return to Nashville for its 22nd edition.  The show will be held in the Expo-2 Building at The Fairgrounds Nashville on July 15-16, 2023.  GPS address is 500 Wedgewood Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203.  Hours are 10 to 5 on Saturday, and 11 to 3 on Sunday. There will be a Guest Speaker at 1 on Saturday. Admission is $8 per person and is good for both days.  Parking at the Fairgrounds is $5/day.

The show is devoted exclusively to glassware and pottery made by American manufacturers.  Most of the manufacturers of this glassware are no longer in business, and the show provides an opportunity to see and purchase items that cannnot be acquired in today's retail stores.  The vendors will have early American pattern glass (EAPG), depression-era glass, elegant glass, mid-centurn modern glass, and kitchen glassware such as Fire King and Pyrex.  There will be dealers from across the country.


The show is hosted by the Fostoria Glass Society of Tennessee, a chapter of the Fostoria Glass Society of America.  Proceeds from the show are used to support the Fostoria Glass Museum in Moundsville, WV, and other museums and programs devoted to preserving the history and heritage of American-made glassware.
