A Memorial Day tradition in St. Louis for 39 years, the St. Louis Symphony Volunteer Association presents the Gypsy Caravan. A city within a city is created for up to 20,000 shoppers eager to find bargains and unique treasures galore during one of the Midwest’s largest antique, craft and flea markets that takes place at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL).
Come to the UMSL campus to be in the center of all the activity. Located just off of I-70 and I-170 in north St. Louis County and conveniently accessible via the UMSL North Station MetroLink stop, this annual event has wonderful visibility, ample public parking and is easy to reach by car, MetroLink or MetroBus.
The area will be transformed as vendors display their wares. New to Gypsy Caravan this year is Vendor Lot B with 22 additional Premium vendor spaces just north of Gate 1 and south of Lot C. Again returning to Gypsy Caravan are 72 covered vendor spaces in the Millennium South Garage, located across from outdoor booths on Lot E.
Because Gypsy Caravan is a nationally recognized fair, vendors come from a number of states and offer everything from trinkets and treasures, to birdhouses and bureaus. It’s an incredible selection of antiques, collectibles, jewelry, furniture, fashions, crafts and much more. Something is bound to catch your eye, capture your heart or whet your appetite.
Delicious food and beverages, including the Triton Dining and Beer Garden on the Millennium Center patio, are also a part of the event and refresh those who spend part of the holiday with us.
This shopper’s paradise is open from 7am to 5pm, rain or shine. Proceeds benefit the St. Louis Symphony, a client of St. Louis PR Agency Geile/Leon Marketing Communications, with a mission to enrich people’s lives through the power of music….Please join us on May 30, 2011 as we celebrate Gypsy Caravan’s 39th anniversary. There’s nothing quite like Gypsy Caravan…and there’s no better place to be on Memorial Day!
