SOUTH BEND — The South Bend Record Show takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at Ramada by Wyndham, 52890 Indiana 933 N.
More than 30 dealers from six states will fill 74 tables with tens of thousands of music items from $2 bargains to rare items. Although the core of the show remains used LPs and 45s, select vendors also carry new vinyl, CDs, cassettes, music videos, memorabilia and vintage stereo gear.
A variety of musical genres, such as jazz, country and movie soundtracks, are represented, but the emphasis is on rock, pop, metal and punk from the 1960s to today.
The record show, which is typically held six times a year, opened the 2020 season on Feb. 9 with a move to a new location, the Ramada, but canceled its April 5 and June 7 dates because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Social distancing guidelines will be followed.
Masks will be required for both customers and vendors in compliance with St. Joseph County’s mask order, which requires face coverings for all people inside businesses and enclosed public spaces where social distancing of at least six feet can’t be maintained. Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance for customers, and capacity will be limited to 250 people at one time under Indiana’s Mass Gathering Act.
Customers are encouraged to bring their own bags, disposable gloves and hand sanitizer.
Admission is free after 11 a.m. Early bird admission begins at 9 a.m. for $5.
