The Record Shows of America website is apparently no longer being maintained.
Nothing below means anything at this time …
IF YOU’RE A RECORD COLLECTOR, then you need to know about Record Shows of America. Hell, even if you’re not a record collector, you should know about this website, because attending a show and seeing thousands of 45s and LPs hanging on walls and displayed on tables is a fun way to spend a day!
Record Shows of America is a website where you can look up the state in which you live and see what record collectors shows, record collectors conventions, record swap meets, or record faires are scheduled in the near future.
Record Shows of America site is the work of John DeBlaiso, master of ceremonies to the Northwest Record & CD Collectors Convention for years! (And you have to ask John about the cat.)
When’s the next show?
Record Shows of America answers every collector’s question, “When’s the next show?” This site is basically a comprehensive record show calendar, where simple record show listings are always free!
Record Shows of America went online in January 2005, and has other features, such as store and web site listings for businesses. It has been growing ever since, and has just reached the #1 spot on Google as well as several other search engines.
The Austin Record Convention is the largest sale of recorded music in the USA. There are over one million 78s, 45s, LPs, CDs, cassettes, posters, and music-related memorabilia available. Over 300 different dealers from all over the USA and Europe are spread out over 50,000 square feet of floor space. The show is so big that to see everything takes most of the weekend.
Record Shows of America offers free listings to any and all records shows being held in Canada. Alas, no show has taken advantage of this offer and so there are no shows listed for Canada.

FEATURED IMAGE: I found this photo of boxes filled with used LPs several years ago while skimming the internet. While I copied the photo, I forgot to collect the address of the site where I found it. Consequently, I can’t properly credit the unknown site for use of this image.
