Cathedral Antiques Show Returns on January 22

The annual Cathedral Antiques Show will return to the Cathedral of St. Philip at 2744 Peachtree Road. Since the event’s founding in 1969 the Cathedral Antiques Show has raised more than $50 million for local charities. The 2020 beneficiary to receive 100% of profits from the event is Moving in the Spirit, a program aimed to teach young people social, emotional, and cognitive skills through dance.
