What is The Gathering?
The Gathering is the best Sporting Collectibles, Art, Duck Decoy, and Fish Decoy Show in the Mid-West! In fact, we are the World’s Largest Fish Decoy Show!
We are a buy-sell-trade type of show, with an average of 110 vendor tables and 2 days of shopping fun. The admission is $8.00 per adult -per day, and all kids are free. This is a family style show, so bring them all as we have something for everyone. Many of our vendors are capable of identification and appraisals, and most are looking to buy if you have quality collectibles. The show is held at the Community Center in Perham, Minnesota. Take the middle exit off Highway 10, about 3 blocks north, on your left.
The first gymnasium is the vendor show and the second gym is all Carving Competitions, with the best of the best carvers from across the mid-west. In 2021 we have over $28,000 in prize money up for grabs, so you Will see some World Class decoys. Past years pics at www.nfdadecoys.org. About half the show is fish decoys, so come to meet the carvers/artists.
We hope you can attend. Please register your email address and we will send you an update 60 days before the show.
