COVINGTON – The Covington Heritage Foundation will host the 7th Annual Covington Antiques and Uniques Festival, April 17-18, 2021, at the Covington Trailhead at 419 N. New Hampshire St. in Covington.
The two-day, juried, free event will showcase more than 50 vendors displaying an eclectic mix of antique furnishings, period collectibles, architectural salvage, and vintage-inspired fine arts and crafts as well as food and live music throughout the weekend.
An added feature to the festival will be the St. Tammany Art Association’s Art Market. Fine art, jewelry, photography, paintings, woodworking, fiber art, pottery and more will be displayed.
The Covington Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to preserve the city’s culture, character and community. The festival is coordinated with the support of the City’s Department of Cultural Arts and Events. Department Director Aimee Faucheux said as the festival grows and evolves each year, the goal remains the same – to offer a first-class juried event that reflects the unique charm and history of Covington.
“We are thrilled we are able to have the festival this year,” said Faucheux. “We invite everyone to come out and enjoy a good time.”
The festival will be following the 6 ft physical distancing and face mask mandate as required by our Governor at the time of the event.
