The South Bend Record Show is the largest one-day sale of recorded music in Northern Indiana. There are more than 85 tables filled with an ever-changing mix of tens of thousands of used and new music – LPs, 45s, CDs, cassettes – as well as DVDs, memorabilia, posters, vintage stereo gear, and storage supplies. You can find $2 bargains to high-end collectibles. Multiple genres are represented, but the show is heaviest on classic rock, pop, metal, punk, prog rock, and ’80s. Select vendors carry blues, jazz, R&B, soul, country, and more.

Nearly 40 dealers from throughout Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and elsewhere travel to South Bend six times a year with an eclectic inventory making this one of the best record shows in the Midwest!

“One of the best, most anticipated record shows in the entire three-state region!  This show is no joke. I  see larger crowds as the event continues to grow. This show is REALLY that good!”
– Eric Swope,
Mishawaka, Indiana
