The Show of Shows

24 February 2023 @ 8:00 am - 25 February 2023 @ 5:00 pm EST

The MAX Show
The Show of Shows

Where to begin with The Show of Shows… This is THE monster show worldwide. With 1965 tables packed full of military collectables and historic weapons across a 166,500 square foot area, there is little worldwide to compare it to. Traders, collectors and enthusiasts travel from across the globe to meet at this incredible show every February.

You will find artefacts dating back to pre US Civil war and right up to current conflicts as well as an impossibly long list of military collectibles, books, equipment, weapons and much more.

Ideally located less than a mile from the Louisville International Airport, access couldn’t be much easier. theres also a long list of available local hotels should you wish to stay the distance.

In the back room you will always find a mix of interesting folk. Over the years there have been veterans of some of the worlds most historic battles discussing their experiences to pass on their increasingly important experiences onto us. These have included Band of Brothers veterans, Tuskegee Airmen, Medal of Honour winners and so so many more incredible people. CLICK HERE for this years currently list (Subject to change).

First time visitor?

Advice for a first timer as this is no ordinary show.

Firstly, cash. Most traders will only accept cash, although some will have card machines, this is rare. So cash is the best way to approach the situation. There is an ATM on site, however it is often emptied quite quickly.

Secondly, wear comfortable shoes. This is a huge event and you will likely spend far more time on your feet and moving than you may expect.

Finally, if you have an item you wish to sell, then take it with you. Most trades are always looking for new items so would be more than happy to discuss an item with you.


Friday & Saturday singe day ticket – $10

2 day pass $18

Children under 18 free when accompanied by an adult.

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, car 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.
