Best Record & CD Shows

The Top Ten

1 Pennsylvania Music Expo - Lancaster, Pa.

The largest monthly show of its kind for 37 years - by collectors, for collectors. The organization has received so much interest, a second showroom was added to support the vendors who wanted to set up and provide more shopping experiences for the customers. A great experience - and it is FREE!

Longest running monthly show in the world. World class knowledgeable vendors and shoppers with free admission, and family oriented atmosphere.

I always find lots of great bargains here from all of the friendly vendors who are glad to help me find whatever I am looking for.

In its 37th year...that says it all.

2 Monster Ann Arbor Record and CD Show - Ann Arbor, Mich.

I mentioned to a clerk at my favorite retail clothing store today that I was looking forward to the Ann Arbor show next weekend. The young lady asked, "vinyl"?! I replied, "yes". She plans to bring her boyfriend and her grandparents! It nice to see the younger customers at the show.

Awesome show! There is such a diversity of music at the show. The dealers are very helpful. I like connecting with the fellow customers - young and old, some are from Europe and Japan!

An awesome show that never fails! Always a killer selection from a room FULL of great dealers!

I can't wait for the next show. Huge room with great selection. The dealers are wonderful. I love chatting with the diverse fellow customers. At that last show I had a few conversations with customers from the UK!

3 The Greater Orange County Record Show - Buena Park, Calif.
4 KDVS Record Swap - Sacramento, Calif.

Lots of old vinyl in great condition, lots of people from a wide area and range of tastes, something for everyone. Easy to get to, nice people.

I DJ in Davis at KDVS and there's definitely some soul there. One of the few places where even the youngens are crazed for records.

KDVS is the best thing that ever happened to the SACO area and beyond.

I work at KDVS, and this is one of my big events

5 WFMU Record and CD Fair - New York

Diverse vendors with terrific records and record-related stock to sell, and the show is run by a wonderful independent radio station, WFMU.

This must be the best show, because I've been attending this show since 1998!

6 Bay City Record Convention - Bay City, MI

This is a wonderfully structured convention for all levels of vinyl lovers with outstanding vendors and prize drawings throughout the day.

An absolutely great event for lovers of vinyl & cassettes. "St. VINYL-tine's Day" is February 13th and I can't wait for the show!

A very great show, always glad too be a part of it. Great people all the way around.

Attend twice a year! Keeps growing and growing!
