NPT’s Appraisal Day returns June 15, 2024, at the Fairgrounds Nashville!

From NPT’s Appraisal Day 2018

NPT’s signature appraisal event returns Saturday, June 15, 2024. This year NPT’s Appraisal Day will be held at the Fairgrounds Nashville (625 Smith Ave., Nashville TN 37203), right in our own Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood.

It’s been a while since we hosted one of these – 2019, before the pandemic! – so here’s a refresher on what to expect. At Appraisal Day, guests bring up to three or up to six items and meet with local and regional appraisers for verbal evaluations of those items.

Tickets are available at at two levels: $75 to bring up to three items and $150 to bring up to six items. AND you may bring people with you to help carry stuff and/or simply have fun – your ticket limits only the number of items you bring. Tickets are for either the morning (9 to 11 a.m.) or afternoon (1 to 4 p.m.) session. Admission will also be available at the door. All proceeds from Appraisal Day directly support NPT’s engaging and educational programming for the entire Middle Tennessee community.

Doors to Appraisal Day will be closed between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. (All morning ticket holders will be seen before the midday break.) Parking at the fairgrounds is free.
