Many changes have taken place during the past 60+ years developing one of the premier antique shows in northern Illinois. This year is no exception, with the addition of new and returning dealers, it is shaping up to be another great event. The Oregon Woman’s Club, a member of the General Federation of Woman’s Clubs, sponsors this show as a major fundraising event and uses the proceeds to help fund various community projects and charities.
As in past years, the show will be held at the Blackhawk Center Sports Arena, located on the Oregon public school campus. The facility offers ample parking, handicap accessibility and a huge area for our 52 Midwest antique dealers to display their merchandise for sale.
