The 2019 ARCA Record & CD Show will be held at the Gardendale Civic Center on March 1 & 2, 2019. We have relocated from our former location which has allowed us to increase dealer space by  more than 50%.  At the Bessemer location our space was limited to 60 tables.  This year we will have 93 tables. All of your favorite dealers will be here and we will also have some dealers who have never been to the Birmingham area.  You don’t want to miss this Show!

Friday’s hours have been adjusted to start and end one hour earlier.  The Early Bird hours are 12 noon to 3PM.  General Admission hours are 3-8 PM on Friday.  Saturday’s hours (all General Admission) are 9 AM to 5 PM. Food Trucks will be available both days and there is an onsite ATM.

If you have any questions about the Show, customers can contact us at alabamarecordcollectors@gmail.com  and dealers can contact Joe Reddick at heyjoe1357@aol.com.

ARCA has mailed information to last year’s show dealers. Returning dealers in good standing will receive table priority until February 15, 2019. We expect demand for tables to exceed our capacity and you should respond immediately.

If you are either new to the show or did not participate in our 2018 show, contact Joe Reddick at heyjoe1357@aol.com to be added to our list.

A Few Tips

Here's a few tips for those of you attending our CD and Record Show at the GARDENDALE Civic Center:
Each dealer is independent--there's no checkout like a grocery store--pay each dealer separately for your purchase.

Bring cash in a range of denominations--no one likes to break a $100 for a small purchase. Some dealers can take a credit card or Paypal but cash always gets a better deal. There is an ATM at the Civic Center. 

Have a list of what you're looking for. Most dealers know what they have.
Bringing in a small amount of records to try to sell to a dealer is OK and coming in to see if a dealer wants to check out the records you have in your trunk is also OK. But selling records out of your car to the public is NOT OK. Our dealers pay for their space.

Food trucks will be available both days.
