The Chester Decorative, Antiques and Art Fair feels like a true celebration of the history of the north of England. The event brings together many dealers from this part of the country, and often dealers come from further afield, as and when the organizers recognize a high standard of antiques that add value to the fair. It only takes place over one weekend during the year, and this date varies slightly year to year, so any interested parties should make sure they note the dates in good time so as not to miss out on the chance to browse through these fantastic stalls.
Though there has long been an antique fair at Chester’s Racecourse, the Chester Decorative, Antiques and Art Fair has only existed in its current form since 2019 when new organizers took over the event. This popular cultural fair was relaunched for a new generation of collectors and home interior stylists. Now the fair sees a much greater emphasis on providing art, antiques, and Twentieth-century designer pieces for contemporary and traditional homes.
The dealers at the Chester Decorative, Antiques and Art Fair are one of the reasons that visitors will return to this event again and again.

All in all, there is a fantastic mix of goods to be found here, and definitely something to suit all tastes.
