David, get there as early as you can! You will definitely want time to see everyones fans for display as well as ones for sale. We drive to Cincinnati just to go to Jungle Jim’s. This is far more important than that. 😝   Look forward to meeting you. 👍

I was planning on bringing a friend who is not a member to the auction. Will he be allowed in or will he have to sit in a hot car... he likes fans, so that may count for something...

David, be sure to sign up for Fan Fair before June 30th to miss the late registration fee. You have to be registered to bid in the auction, your registration number is your bidder number.

Not free, but not as much as a fan either. You should have gotten a registration form in the last Fan Collector or you can go to the home page & click Fan Fair.

Fan Fair is the premier event of the AFCA each year. It's in a different locale every year and comes back to Indianapolis every fifth year. Each Fan Fair entails months of planning, with a lot of work involving a lot of people. At Fan Fair, there are people manning the registration table, people selling raffle tickets, people putting on seminars, people attending Board meetings, and then there is the auction, with the auctioneer, spotters, recorders, and checkout people. There are no fees or commission charges. Most important are the attendees, each paying the registration fee. Most have driven or flown hundreds, if not thousands of miles to attend, bringing with them dozens and dozens of fans for sale or trade. They rent the tables for their displays, some needing eight or more tables. It is a full four days of fans and to top it off, you get free admission to the AFC Museum where a cookout on Friday night is happening, and free lunch and dinner on Saturday at the hotel.....One of the benefits of belonging to the Antique Fan Collectors Association is you can attend Fan Fair. All you need to do is register and send in your payment. Where else can you have so much fun (Legally) for so little money?

I have a question about the FF fee.  I'm about to send off my registration form and it says "Check" I've never written a single check in my life. Does money order work? Cash? Thanks!

I do highly recommend attending the entire Fan Fair if you can. It really is a sight to behold every year! You might find something out on the tables you can't pass up! There are always a few deals to be had.  :up:

Is it possible to leave Fan Fair empty handed? Not for me.
