Come visit us, once is not enough!
Dear Friend,
We’re tickled pink to offer so many fun things to do during June in Rugby. It all starts this weekend (June 13 & 14) with a great Street Fair with Antiques & Fine Crafts. Fair admission’s FREE! Remember us for Fathers’ Day on Sunday June 21, when the Harrow Road Café plans a tasty feast for Dad & family. Then we finish the special events with an Antique Car Show June 27, the day before Historic Rugby’s annual Membership Meeting. We’d love to see you here, for an event or just a day visit or overnight stay!
This Saturday & Sunday: Antiques, Fine Crafts, More

What treasures might you find at this weekend at Rugby’s annual Street Fair? Surely something among all the antiques and finely crafted items. See the blacksmith ironwork of Brad Greenwood. Peek in at Rugby’s working letterpress and see how it works. Browse the furniture, glassware, tools, books, linens & quilts. Christ Church Episcopal will hold a Rummage Sale for other bargains at the Friendly House behind the church. Food will be available inside and outside the Harrow Road Café. Fair admission is still FREE. Guided tours of the historic buildings require a modest fee. Come explore! 10-6 Eastern/9-5 Central both days.

Benefit Antique Car Show, Sat. June 27, FREE
Antique cars fill Rugby at the 2012 show We never know what great automobiles will show up for Rugby’s annual Benefit Antique Car Show. Come see! If you have a car to enter (just $10), click below for details. We’ll see them all, from upscale classics to down-home street rods. It’s FREE for spectators. Enjoy browsing, shopping at Rugby’s unique stores, a meal or snack, and help us preserve Rugby. Hours are 9-3/8-2 Central, so don’t be late.

What better way to salute Dad than a visit to Rugby with a Fathers’ Day lunch at the Harrow Road Café? The special will be Surf & Turf (coconut shrimp + N.Y. strip steak). Open until 4/3 Central on Sunday, June 21. Call 423-628-2441 for reservations.
       Watch out for articles on Rugby’s Gentlemen’s Swimming Hole later this month in the Knoxville News-Sentineland next month in Scott County’sIndependent Herald! We think it’s the oldest continually used swimming hole in the state, documented from 1880/81. Try it out! You can also take a free Ranger-guided hike there each Saturday and Sunday during the summer at 9:30/8:30 a.m. Central from the trailhead, thanks to the Big South Fork NRRA. (It’s in Rugby’s southern end of the national park.)
If you’re in Rugby June 17-20, you may see some writers about. Author Amy Greene will be holding a writers’ retreat here then. Help us welcome them.
