JARS-uary 2017 ~ Muncie Fruit Jar Show / Muncie IN / Big Collectors Multi-Day Event



It's that time of year again: JARS-UARY!

The 2017 Winter Muncie Fruit Jar Show 4 Day Event is Almost Here! 

January 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2017 in Muncie, Indiana

The January Muncie event, with the infamous 3-days (DAZE!) of room-hopping including the Saturday Get Together Meeting & Auction at the Baymont Inn Hotel, all followed by the big Sunday Fruit Jar & Bottle show at the Horizon Center.

COME TO FRUIT JAR CENTRAL!


MUNCIE-HOTEL-2.JPG


























Some very serious collectors will start arriving in Muncie on Wednesday, so you'd better book your hotel room NOW -- you don't want to miss a minute of the fun.

The Midwest Antique Fruit Jar & Bottle Club of Muncie IN is putting on their January fruit jar collectors event, the "Muncie Fruit Jar Show & Get Together", with collectors and dealers coming from all over the U.S. 

The Muncie Fruit Jar Shows are well-known for the amazing and rare items brought for sale, for the outstanding educational collector-displays exhibited during the show, as well as for the great group of fruit jar enthusiasts who treat this multi-day event like a combination convention/club meeting/reunion.

  • So, it's room-hopping at the Baymont Inn hotel on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 5, 6, and 7, 2017. 




Then on to the Horizon Center on SUNDAY 
JANUARY 8, 2017 FOR THE BIG SHOW.

  • Horizon Convention Center is in downtown Muncie, at 401 South High Street. 
  • Displayers set up at 6:30 am, dealers at 7:00 am 
  • Doors open to the public at 9:00 am. Show lasts until 2:00 pm. 
  • Admission is $2. 

Join us for the world-famous "Room-Hop-Shopping" at the Baymont Inn Hotel before the show, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The hotel is located at 3400 N Chadam Ln Muncie IN 47304 (GOOGLE MAPS LINK)

The public is welcome! You do NOT need to have a room at the hotel to come visit and room-hop-shop. We encourage new collectors to stop by and see what we're up to, and learn a little something about fruit jars.

Fruit jar collectors spend several days at the hotel before the Sunday "official" show, sharing and trading. A few tall-stories are told, too, all adding to the fun. Groups of friends, old and newly-made, often head out for lunch or dinner at area restaurants. The room-hop-shopping continues until late in the night, and starts again early each morning, after the hotel's complimentary breakfast, and lots of coffee!

On Saturday morning the Jelly-Jammers Club holds their meeting, and then after a complimentary lunch there is the Midwest Club's meeting, open to all, followed by a lively open-consignment/fee-free auction. 




Then the official show set-up is early Sunday morning, at the Horizon Center in downtown Muncie, a quick drive from the hotel. The show opens to the public at 9am, ending at 2pm, when the dealers pack up and head home, weary but happily reminiscing about the good time they had being with other collectors who speak the special language of Munice, Fruit-Jar-ese!

Read my show reports on the 2011 Winter Muncie show and the 2012 Winter Event -- with lots of pix! Read this jar forum's posts about Muncie.

The Saturday meeting schedule and Sunday show details are here on the Midwest Fruit Jar Club's website --http://fruitjar.org/

For more SHOW INFO and dealer-tables, contact Dave Rittenhouse @ 765-468-8091

For HOTEL ROOMS, contact Baymont Inn -- 765-284-4200  -- 3400 N Chadam Ln Muncie IN (hotel website)

Attention -- if you're planning on staying at the hotel, it is not called Signature Inn anymore. It is now a BAYMONT INN -- same phone number -- double check your reservations.

Again: The actual ''show'' will be held SUNDAY JANUARY 8, 2017 at the Horizon Convention Center 401 S High St Muncie IN 47304, and open to the public 9am-2pm, with $2 admission, and free parking.
