2022 Rotary Antique Quilt Show Announces NEW VENUE

The Rotary Club of Paducah is excited to announce a new, exciting venue for the Rotary Antique Quilt Show in Paducah, KY.  Beginning in 2022, the Rotary Antique Quilt Show will be hosted by The Carson Center For The Performing Arts located at 100 Kentucky Avenue in downtown Paducah.

The Carson Center, a nationally recognized entertainment venue, will provide both vendors and visitors to the Rotary Antique Quilt Show with a first-class experience.  The new location will provide close, convenient access to other key venues related to the AQS Quilt Show including the Schroeder Expo Center, The National Quilt Museum and all that downtown Paducah has to offer.

“We could not be more pleased with our move to The Carson Center” stated Eric Straub, Rotary Club of Paducah Vice President and Chair of the Rotary Antique Quilt Show. “Conveniently located only a mile away from the Schroeder Expo Center and overlooking the Ohio River, we are excited to welcome our vendors and guests to one of Paducah’s main attractions and the area’s premier performing arts facility. The new venue provides easy access to and from all of the quilt show festivities and to all of the local shops and restaurants in downtown Paducah.”

Organized by The Rotary Club of Paducah, proceeds from the Rotary Antique Quilt Show provide college scholarships annually for local students through the Rotary Education Assistance Program (REAP).

In 2010, the Rotary Club of Paducah initiated the idea for the Community Scholarship Program (CSP) as a public-private partnership with strong participation from the Rotary, the City of Paducah, McCracken County Fiscal Court, Paducah Junior College, Inc., partnering high schools, West Kentucky Community and Technical College, and a number of local businesses. The intent of the CSP is to provide gap funding to assist students in attaining a two-year degree or industry certification at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

 Annual Rotary Antique Quilt Show Mission

Proceeds from the Rotary Quilt Show provide college scholarships annually for local students through the Rotary Education Assistance Program (REAP). 

In 2010, the Rotary Club of Paducah initiated the idea for the Community Scholarship Program (CSP) as a public-private partnership with strong participation from the Rotary, the City of Paducah, McCracken County Fiscal Court, Paducah Junior College, Inc., partnering high schools, West Kentucky Community and Technical College, and a number of local businesses. The intent of the CSP is to provide gap funding to assist students in attaining a two-year degree or industry certification at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

The Community Scholarship Program (CSP) was developed to provide an incentive to McCracken County youth to stay in school and work toward a productive future. The goal of the program is to increase the percentage of McCracken County high school graduates who transition to postsecondary education after high school graduation by helping eliminate the leading barrier to a college education-financial cost.

Over the past seven years, more than 3,200 students have pledged to consider attending college after high school-more than 85% of the total number of eligible high school students in McCracken County. For many of the first students finding their way to the campus of West Kentucky Community and Technical College, the Community Scholarship Program has been more than a scholarship, it has been the opportunity of a lifetime.
