A treasure hunter’s paradise takes place May 10 through May 12

Spring has finally arrived and organizers of the Gold Rush at the Olmsted County Fairgrounds in Rochester are setting the stage for spring picking May 10, 11 & 12.

The Gold Rush is highly regarded among collectors and dealers because of the consistent quality and unique antiques, collectibles and vintage items presented.

It’s the 47th year of this event in which the 52 acres fairgrounds is transformed into a mecca of antiques and vintage items filling 9 buildings; tack on hundreds of more dealers outside where everything old is new again…..whether it be antique, vintage, nostalgic or hip.  You will find it all at Gold Rush!  Collect it, revive it and celebrate the past!

Come and be part of the great treasure hunt, walk the aisles, discover and renew old memories, artifacts and relics of yesteryear.   

Show hours:  Friday and Saturday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Note:  Customers can come and shop Friday which is dealer set up day while dealers are setting up from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.  Food vendors will be serving up some of your favorites.
