Military Events

Militaria Shows This Weekend 3/2/23

Each Thursday we compile a list of all the militaria shows and events happening over the weekend. This weekend (3/2/23) we have a good few fairs going on around the world. So as always, please go and support your local fairs. They are the absolute best way to see and handle militaria in person, to meet new people in the collecting world, and of course to find bargains!

At Militaria Today we have compiled the world’s most extensive militaria fairs and events list. We strive to be as accurate as we can. However, all events are subject to change, so we recommend checking with the event organisers before travelling, in case of any last-minute changes. We cover a worldwide market, so it can be hard to keep up with last-minute amendments.

Know of a show that’s not on our list?

Our fairs list is completely free for all users and show organisers! So if you know of a militaria fair, show, military yard/boot sale, reenactment or other event that is not on our list, just get in touch and we will happily add it to our list and promote the event on our social media. Please send any submissions via our contact us page. We want to build the most complete worldwide list available.
