Heartland Militaria Show at Grady County Fairgrounds

The seventh edition of the Heartland Militaria Show is on tap this weekend in Chickasha at the Grady County Fairground and Expo Center. The largest show of it’s kind in Oklahoma will feature over 375 tables of merchandise and collectibles sponsored by over 100 vendors from across the nation and abroad in this three day show.
 If you are a military history enthusiast this is like walking into a museum said promoter Matt Hindi.
 This show has grown in the number of vendors and the amount of items displayed that the show had to expand to a third day. The show will be open to the public on Friday afternoon June 24th beginning at 3pm and open until 7pm. Then all day Saturday, June 25th from 9 am to 5 pm, and again on Sunday, June 26th from 9 am to 4 pm.
 The 25,000 sq ft fairgrounds building was also a World War ll German prisoner of war camp.
 Many collectors are thrilled of the success of the show that has been in existence since Hindi’s first show in 2017. The quality and quantity of military artifacts for sale and on display is amazing and well worth the admission even for someone who is not a collector.
 The show is appropriate for all ages.
 Promoter Matt Hindi is a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer and retired from Tinker Air Base in 2011. When not promoting shows here and in other states he is a private contractor at Tinker. His wife, Pattie, who also helps with the shows is a Navy veteran as well and works for the Oklahoma VA Medical Center.
 There is a free appraisal service on-site if you have a treasure that you would like to know more about.
 Admission is normally $10 per person. Veteran’s, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, and OSA admission is $9.00. An Early Bird Pass is $50 and good for all three days
 Bringing an item to sell or trade reduces your admission by $1.00, and if you will tell the gate keeper that you saw the ad or article in the Washita Valley Community News or Chisholm Trail Community News promoting the show you can get in with the reduced admission. As always youth under the age of 12 receive free admission.
