Trade Days kicks off this weekend


ROCKSPRINGS — Meigs Trade Days returns this weekend, kicking off a full slate of 2021 events.

The Meigs Trade Days Committee is gearing up for the 2021 trade days season with the first event of the season, a spring craft show, to be held on March 27th.

“The craft show promises to be an event that you don’t want to miss. All inside spaces for vendors/crafters have sold out however, there are still plenty of outside spaces still available. With the event scheduled at the end of March it will be perfect for those looking for Easter, Mother’s Day and even Father’s Day gifts,” stated event organizers in a news release.

Trade Days is operated by a group of volunteers consisting of Meigs County Fair board members and community supporters with Wendi Miller and Tara Roberts being co-chairs of the committee. All proceeds from the events directly benefit the Meigs County Fair.

Trade days began in 2019, when some board members and supporters felt that there was a need in the county for a flea market type event since the closing of Alligator Jacks with the fairgrounds being the ideal location.

“The first couple of years have been a learning experience with just getting started and then COVID hit but we have remained positive and the events continue to grow each time according to event organizers. The Meigs Trade Days isn’t just a flea market venue, it is a farmer’s market as well. All events are family friendly and have free admission and free parking,” stated the news release.

Meigs Trade Days have events scheduled for 2021, which include flea market events, craft shows, Christmas in July and Halloween camping events, and will end the season with a Christmas Craft Show in November, so there is a little something for everyone.

Vendors from as far as Kentucky, North Carolina and Pennsylvania have all set up in the past shows. Trade Days offers a place for those in direct sales, local crafters, and yard sale/flea market to sell items and reach a bigger customer base. It’s a great place to bring the family and find a great bargain.

March 27 — Craft Show
