The West Coast Historical Militaria Collectors Show will be May 6-7, 2016!
Thank you everyone for making our most recent May, 2015 event a success story, we enjoyed a great crowd Friday/Saturday and overall it was a very fun weekend! Thank you to our dealers for their participation, we had a great variety of items for sale and some wonderful displays - the public loved it! We are truly gaining momentum with the LARGER show format (after many years of offering two smaller events annually, in 2013 we started combining our May and Nov shows into ONE big May event) and we feel the dealers and public really enjoy the experience in Building #4 (the largest convention building at the Fairplex!).
Vintage Productions is once again bringing together quality militaria dealers from all around the world for our ALL MILITARIA show at The Fairplex in Pomona - our 11th year at Fairplex! Our next event is scheduled for Friday, May 6th and Saturday, May 7th, 2016 - No Sunday hours. We will continue focusing considerable effort on promoting and growing our May event and we are excited to be continuing on in the larger building #4. We will be making great strides to provide our dealers with an even better event each year!
We hope our dealers and public will continue to be supportive as we forge ahead and evolve this annual event into a better and better show. We would like to invite all of our current, previous and new historical military antiques and collectiblesdealers to attend our May, 2016 event.
