South Bend Record Show

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The South Bend Record Show returns on Sunday, June 2, at The Gillespie Conference Center, Hilton Garden Inn.

Organizers say there will be 38 vendors from six states occupying 100 tables to sell various music items.

You'll be able to find new and used LPs, 45s, CDs, cassettes, posters, vintage stereo gear, music T-shirts, record supplies, and more.

“Imagine the biggest record store you have ever walked into, and then triple it,” said South Bend resident Jeremy D. Bonfiglio, the event organizer. “That is what it is like walking into the South Bend Record Show. There are tens of thousands of music items from an amazing roster of vendors. Whether you are new to vinyl or have been collecting for decades, no one will walk away from this show empty-handed."

Early entry admission is $7 starting at 9 a.m., and general admission opens at 11 a.m. for $2.

Organizers add all music genres will be represented, with a strong emphasis on classic rock, modern pop, 80s, hard rock and metal, punk, jazz, blues, R&B, country, and more.

A food truck will also be on-site.

There will be door prize drawings at noon and 2 p.m. for the chance to win $25 shopping certificates and record products from BCW Supplies.

The first 75 customers in the door will be given a free tote bag from BCW.

Attendees are encouraged to bring cash, the preferred form of payment, by all vendors. Organizers say some dealers may also accept credit and debit cards, PayPal, Zelle, and Venmo.

Hilton Garden Inn is located at 53995 IN 933, just north of St. Mary's College.

The next show of 2024 is scheduled for Sunday, August 4, at the same location.
