    We have shows comings up in Shipshewana and Elkhart the next two weekends. Does the Thanksgiving holiday diminish participation? It’s disappointing to me going to a show and finding a lack of tables/display. What’s your experience been?

    I haven't been to any shows in Indiana yet but will be going to the next one if it's not too far away from Ft.Wayne. I've found in Texas at least the holidays were pretty busy at the shows.

    None taken. My Dad and I have found some nice things there. They do once a month and get quite a bit of IL traffic too. I prefer the Valparaiso show (2nd biggest in the state), but it's only twice a year.

    Addressing the OP, I've seen no down turn at any show near a holiday. If anything a vendor or two.

    Holiday shows seem well attended and lots of the vendors are new/different than the same ones that go every weekend. Guys have time off. What better way to spend it! I’ll be checking out the Holt Rd Armory show in Indy next weekend myself!

    I have. Or been since Covid-19’s appearance. I’ll have to see what crown point has to offer. In the past, it was always a good show no matter the date.

    On Monday I saw “Gun Show This Weekend” at the entrance to the Fort Wayne Coliseum. Not sure if leftover from the previous weekend or promoting Thanksgiving weekend.

    I'd like to checkout the Crown Point and Valpo shows. Anyone know the next dates of each ?
    Lake county (Crown Point) show is this coming weekend, Dec 3-4

    Porter county (Valparaiso) show isn't listed. They do 2 per year. Usually one in late February or early March then again around October

    .....there's a show down in Madison, In on the 10/11th of Dec. My best friend of 40some years lives down that way. Good excuse to get together and see what kind of trouble we can get in or who we can p-$$ off, lol....usually a good show.
