Yea.. adults talking ‘marbles’, just as they did as children and hoping to lure a few others yearning for some nostalgia. See some of Americas greatest marbles and collections. All kinds of stuff. Rooms are open all day Fri. & Sat. for you to browse and ask questions. If you played marbles as a kid, you will love the Badger Marble Show.

Show Update

It’s time! We’re on, with no restrictions! October (7), 8, 9, show on the 10th. We already have rooms reserved and anticipating that there will be a surge in interest. Our love of marbles will sustain us! Make your reservations or plans to be here…..same place: Madison Plaza Hotel (formerly Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel).

The venue is the Madison Plaza Hotel (same hotel as last year) on Madison's east side. Convenient to shopping, entertainment, dining, the famous Market on the Square. Home to the University of Wisconsin and the State Capitol. On Friday and Saturday be sure to visit rooms to sell, show, trade, or just look. The public is encouraged to visit while rooms are open. We are sure you will like the accommodations and show facilities. Be assured, another outstanding marble collectors experience is in the works.

Many people miss some of the most informative, and possibly most interesting aspect of a marble show. That would be Friday and Saturday prior to the actual show in which marble collectors and show presenters exhibit their marbles in their rooms. Many marbles are bought, sold, and traded. You can really get to know marbles and collecting during this time. Rooms will be open most of Friday afternoon, evening, and all day Saturday. Just walk up and down the halls and visit any room that is open. If you really want to know marbles, attend early. It is a good time to buy, sell or trade or just get to know collectors.
