Aledoan producing 50th anniversary antique show

February 26, 2013 by Randy Keck

Special to The Community NewsSpecial to The Community News

On Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9, the first antique and art show in the American west will welcome shoppers for the 50th year at Fort Worth’s Will Rogers Memorial Center. Few cities in the world host an antique and art show that is 50 years old, especially one whose customers range from former First Lady Laura Bush to “Storage Wars Texas” star Moe Prigoff.

Owned by Aledo resident Jan Orr-Harter, the former “Dolly Johnson Show” has taken a new name for its 50th anniversary. The Fort Worth Show of Antiques and Art has also expanded into a larger space, added 25 more exhibitors to its mix and teamed up with the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame for the show’s Benefit Booth. There is even a rumor that Will Rogers himself will attend.

The Will Rogers Memorial Center has been home to the Fort Worth Show since it was founded in 1963. In 2009 the Johnson family sold the show to the Parker County antiques dealer and Fort Worth native Orr-Harter.
