The 20th Century Cincinnati Modern Show Returns February 22-23

Heads up, lovers of modern design! It will soon be time again for 20th Century Cincinnati, the Queen City’s annual show for all things Deco, Space Age, and Mod.

The show, now in its third decade, is one of the best Modern design shows in the country. You’ll find more than 70 dealers across a 20,000-square–foot exhibition hall (wear your walking shoes—this is big, folks!). Modern sellers from all over the country will be there, along with local vendors like Mainly Art and Charley Harper Art Studio.

From gorgeous vintage clothes to stunning jewelry, Mid Century Modern furniture to Art Deco decor, and vinyl records to all sorts of kitschy 50s tchotchkes, 20th Century Cincinnati has something for everyone and in all price ranges. You could design your whole apartment here in a sleek, modernist style (think: Mad Men), or, you could just pick up a fun gift or two for a design fan you know. It’s always a blast no matter what you go for.

Here are the deets you’ll need to know if you plan on attending:
