Brian Lebel’s High Noon Show & Auction returns to Mesa in January to celebrate its 26th year as the Southwest’s premiere event for collectors, dealers and enthusiasts of the art and collectibles of the Old West and the American western lifestyle. The weekend-long event features a Vendor Sale and a live Saturday night Auction that will showcase the very best in authentic cowboy, Indian and western art, antiques, artifacts and other fine merchandise.
The Vendor Show is at the Mesa Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday, January 23 and 24, and the High Noon Auction takes place at the adjacent Phoenix Marriott Mesa on Saturday evening beginning at 5:00 p.m.
Buy, sell and trade at the weekend shopping event—known by many as “the Mesa Show.” More than 170 dealers from around the country will offer authentic western fine art, antiques, apparel, jewelry, home goods, antique and historic firearms, books, boots, spurs, horse gear, cowboy trappings, collectibles and much more.
Show hours are: Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is free parking at the Mesa Convention Center, located at 263 N. Center Street. General admission to the show is $10 per day with kids under 12 free. New this year is a partnership with Mesa’s own United Food Bank. Attendees who bring a canned good donation receive $3 off the price of a general admission ticket. Discount tickets and early entry tickets are available online.
On Saturday evening, the High Noon Auction will see over 400 lots of authentic western art and artifacts cross the block, with pre-sale estimates exceeding $2 million. A number of auction lots boast local Arizona connections, including the sale of the contents of the Valley’s mid-century saddlery, Carl Carlock Co. A color catalog is available for purchase.
Auction Preview hours are Friday, January 22, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Bidding may be done live, online, by telephone or absentee. The Auction and Preview are both free and open to the public. The Phoenix Marriott Mesa is located at 200 N. Centennial Way, Mesa.
