Antiques & Collectibles Event in Apex – Raleigh Durham RTP Triangle North Carolina
PLEASE NOTE: The April and September dates for the 2020 PEAKTIQUE Antiques & Collectibles Festival were CANCELED due to Coronavirus-related restrictions on large gatherings of people. The good news is we are planning two PEAKTIQUE Antiques & Collectibles Festival dates for 2021. Planning for these will begin in January 2021 and details will be posted on this website later.
The Apex PEAK-TIQUE Antiques and Collectibles Festival is being organized and managed jointly by the Apex Downtown Business Association (ADBA), the Apex Historical Society (AHS) and the Town of Apex (TOA). The ADBA and AHS are both non-profit organizations.
PEAKTIQUE, what’s in a name
In 1853, what is now Apex NC was known as "Log Pond Village." In 1868, the railroad started coming through Log Pod Village and the engineers and conductors would refer to the Depot in Log Pond Village as the Apex Station. The reason it was spoke of as the Apex Station was because it was the highest geographic point along the rail line between Chatham County and Richmond Va. In 1872, Log Pond Village petitioned the state legislator to be incorporated as a town to be named Apex. In the early 1970’s the Town of Apex had a contest to come up with a tag line or slogan. The winning slogan for Apex was: "The Peak of Good Living."
So – we took the slogan and the word "antique," combining "PEAK" with "ANTIQUE" to get "PEAKTIQUE". And now you know the rest of the story. CLICK HERE for the photo gallery of past Apex PEAK-TIQUE events
