Show Information

NMGCA sponsors 3 shows a year. Two Gun, Sword, and Knife Shows are typically held on the first full weekend in March and October, and the Albuquerque Old West and Military Collectible Show is typically held on either the first or second weekend in August (August 1&2, 2020). Both members and non-members may submit applications for tables.

NMGCA member table price is $85. Non-member table price is $95. Tables are 8 feet long.

Booths are available at the Albuquerque Old West and Military Collectible Show ONLY. Contact the Show Host for sizes, pricing, and availability.

The NMGCA Board of Directors has instituted a new policy with regard to vendors: Tables must contain at least 80% guns, gun-related items, knives, or knife-related items to be eligible for the $95.00 (non-member) or $85.00 (member) table rate. Otherwise, the table rate for vendors will be $135.00 (non-member) or $125.00 (member) for non-gun-related and non-knife-related items. **Prices Subject to Change**

During the shows in March and October, NMGCA also sponsors a Display Table Contest with cash awards for winners in certain categories. One 8-foot table is provided free to each person entered into the Display Contest.

All shows are currently held at the New Mexico State Fair Grounds, 300 San Pedro NE, Albuquerque NM 87108 (also known as Expo NM).
