The Seaside Convention Center expansion of the facilities continues at a rapid pace. It may not be totally completed by the time we start the convention, so we ask your indulgence as we work around the construction changes this year. The flea market area will be the most impacted and limited in available space this year. Flea marketers that have pre-registered last year will be notified about this soon. To see photos of the construction visit and click on “expansion” in the top banner.

General registrations will open on February 15, 2019. Please pass this email to your friends and encourage them to attend. They can also sign up to receive these email updates by sending an email request to
