The show runs in conjunction with Pacific Grove's Good Old Days festivities along Lighthouse Avenue.


In addition to a colorful display of some 160 traditional and art quilts on display, a Boutique offers a wide variety of unique items for sale. The show also features a Mini Quilt Raffle where you may win one of the beautiful, small-scale quilts on display. You may also purchase tickets for the Raffle Quilt. Drawings for the Mini Quilts and the Raffle Quilt are held late Sunday afternoon. Always a favorite, the Garage Sale promises gently used sewing and quilting supplies plus a vast array of fabric.
