Your PopCulteer and his lovely wife will be heading West (it’s really a pleasant drive) to just South of Louisville, Kentucky for the GI Joe Winterfest, a toy show produced by the fine folks being The Kentuckiana GI Joe Toy Expo (which happens at the end of July). Check out the Facebook Event Page for full details and preview photos.
This will be our first Winterfest, and it’s the first show at the new home of The Kentuckiana show. GI Joe Winterfest happens at the Paroquet Springs Conference Centre, at 395 Paroquet Springs Drive, in Shepherdsville, KY. It’s not far at all from the South Louisville Antique Toy Mall, so most toy collectors ought to have an easy time finding it. Check out how cool it looks…
One of the main attractions for yours truly is the ample supply of new Super Joe Unlimited figures that will be for sale there from My Vintage Toys and Trains. I recently told you about those HERE and posted another video about them HERE. However there will be dozens of vendors and the show promises lots of old and new 12 inch and 3 3/4 inch GI Joes, Star Wars toys, Super Hero figures, Marx Toys, Megos, Big Jim, Pop Culture items and much more.
I’m hoping we can find some SpongeBob stuff for Mel.
GI Joe Winterfest is Saturday, with a Friday preview. Here’s the hours and details:
Saturday 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Admission Just $8.00
Early Bird Admission at 9:00 AM for $15.00
Friday Night Preview 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM for $30.00
All admissions payable at the doors.
This is our first GI Joe Winterfest, and it is at a new location, but to give you a hint of what it might be like, check out this video I made for last year’s Kentuckiana GI Joe Toy Expo…
