For many years, this show was held in Clifton, NJ, at the Pope John High School, thus it was always known as "The Clifton Show". In 2010 and 2011, we held the show in The Benway School, in Wayne, NJ due to renovations being performed at the Clifton School. In 2012, we returned to Clifton where we remained until 2015, when we were forced to relocate at the last minute. Thankfully, the kind folks at Midland Park High School hosted us, and we have been there ever since. We are now known as "The Midland Park Show".


ALL Dealer spaces will be RESERVED and PRE-PAID.

Contact the show chairman for all dealer inquiries.
Our regular indoor dealers take priority. New dealers will be placed on a waiting list until a spot opens in the lineup.

2022 Show Chairman/Dealer Contact: Dave Shapiro E-MAIL ONLY

DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL in regards to this show. All questions and inquiries handled through E-Mail. There will be a dedicated cell phone during the show. The number will be posted here prior to show weekend.

THANK YOU to the Midland Park Board of Education, and all who help make our annual show so successful!!!
