There’s A Massive Antique Show Extravaganza Happening In Springfield This Weekend

This weekend, there’s an incredible vintage and antique market going on.

The Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market is one of the best places to get your hands on vintage and antique items around. The market is held nine times throughout the year at the Clark County Fairgrounds, but twice a year, it’s truly something spectacular.

The Extravaganza is a semi-annual event. This year they will take place May 14-16 & September 17-19 and feature over 2,000 vendors. At times, the Extravaganza can feel just as much like a festival as a market, with a variety of food trucks, live music, and even beer and wine stands.

At the market you can truly find anything, from pottery to vintage accessories to home decor. It’s highly recommended that you come prepared with a way to get your goods around with you while you are shopping. Most visitors bring wagons or small carts.

To keep everyone safe and healthy at the Extravaganza, masks will be required in buildings, barns and the Vintage Marketplace Tents. Masks are required outside if you are unable to social distance, but they can be removed with appropriate social distancing.

General admission tickets are $10 per day (children 16 and under are free) and you can get into the market starting at noon on Friday. If you’d like to get your shopping started before everyone else arrives, you can purchase an Early Bird Buying ticket for $15. The Early Bird ticket holders will get to shop from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, before the gates are opened. The Early Bird tickets also get re-entry to the Extravaganza all weekend long.

Admission to the Extravaganza is cash only and the market suggest that shoppers bring a mix of cash and card to be on the safe side, as vendors vary.

The extravaganza is held at the Clark County Fairgrounds and if you’ve never been before, you will notice one thing right away: the fairgrounds are arranged like a wagon wheel. You will definitely want to grab a program when you enter the market so you can navigate the booths with the help of a map.

The Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market is located at 4401 S Charleston Pike, Springfield, OH 45505. For more information about the Spring Extravaganza, you can follow The Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market on Facebook or visit their website.
