With a multitude of fabulous displays and special guests, the 2014 West Coast Historical Militaria Collectors Show, the West’s largest all-military collectibles event, explodes in Southern California on May 9-10 at the Pomona Fairplex Expo Building #4.

Now held once a year in May, the expanded 105,600 sq. ft. event is host to hundreds of premium militaria dealers from around the world offering a large and diverse selection of militaria antiques from all time periods and countries, represented under one huge roof for two full days. The Show is a must for both the discerning collector and the beginning novice.

“This is a super outing for the whole family to enjoy and there are always a good number of new and experienced collectors in attendance,” says event producer Bob Chatt. “This show certainly encourages even the youngest among us to take an interest in history – what a great way to welcome kids into a world of collecting! There is much to be seen over the weekend; from military history displays, quality re-enactors, and a good number of historical military vehicles!”

Hours are Friday, May 9, from 10a—6p and Saturday, May 10, from 9a—5p (no Sunday hrs). Adults $8, Kids $2 (under 5 free) – active military and their family are always free during general entry (with military ID). As always, there are no firearms or ammunitions allowed at events.
