The 1933/34 World's Fair returns to Chicagoland! Admission is $6, $5 for seniors over 64. Early 9am Preview admission is $20.

Collectors and dealers will meet to buy, sell and trade items related to World's Fairs from 1876 to the present. The main focus will be on the 1933/34 Chicago World's Fair. This year our show celebrates the 80th anniversary of the 1934 World’s Fair. There will also be items from the 1893 Chicago Columbian Exposition and other Chicago related ephemera. 

Items from other World's Fairs include:  1904 St. Louis, 1939-40 New York, 1962 Seattle, 1964-65 New York, Expo '67 and most other World’s Fairs. There will be over 20 tables of World's Fair items for sale! Though there are few traces left in the area where the fair took place -- between Roosevelt Road and 39th Street along the lakefront including the area where Meigs Field was located (now Northerly Island Park) ­-- Rick Rann and Bob Conidi are bringing the fair back to Chicago at this show

There will be continuous showings of home movies and newsreels on video from the 1933/34 Chicago World’s Fair. There will be a special display of 1933 World's Fair memorabilia. 

World's Fair collectors and fans of the fair are invited to come and relive one of the brightest moments in Chicago's history. (Two of the stars on Chicago's flag commemorate the 1893 and 1933/34 Fairs!)
