The Gypsy Caravan Makes Improvements, Celebrates 43 Years
The St. Louis Symphony Volunteer Association will present the 43rd annual Gypsy Caravan once again on Memorial Day, May 25, at The Family Arena in St. Charles. The nationally recognized fair draws buyers and sellers by the thousands, offering up a nearly unlimited selection of unique wares, vintage, antiques furniture and more.
This year, the organization has made some improvements as they settle into their new home in St. Charles for the second year in a row. After experiencing such a high volume of shoppers last year, the concourse level of the Family Arena will open, allowing for more vendor booths indoors, wider aisles throughout the main floor and additional air-conditioned seating. There will also be eight air-conditioned shuttle buses to take shoppers to and from the off-site parking lots to the entrance right outside of the arena. Over 170 booths will be available indoors in addition to the hundreds of available booths outside.
For those who want the first chance at the amazing selection and deals, the Gypsy Caravan is welcoming back the Peek and Purchase event on Sunday, May 24 from 5-7pm. For $30 admission, shoppers get the first chance to shop vendor booths and will also enjoy Early Bird admission at 7am on Monday. For those that are just interested in Early Bird admission from 7-9am on Monday, tickets are $20 and regular price tickets for admission from 9am-5pm is $10. Discounted wristbands and combinations are available. Visit the St. Louis Symphony website for details.
