Come join us October 7, 2018
(next shows planned the first Sunday of October 2019 & 2020)

When the Aladdin Shrine Center in Columbus Ohio was torn down it left a huge void in the Doll Show industry. The show, which had a 40,000 square foot show area ran successfully for 35 years. To Fill that void, Gail Lemmon, Promoter of the Norther Ohio Doll & Bear Show, and myself Sandra Kean Bullock, Promoter of the Toledo Doll & Bear Shoiw have partnered to open a new show in that same vicinity at the beautiful Roberts Center in Wilmington. This is a full service facility with the convention hall, Holiday Inn Hotel, and a Max & Erma’s Restaurant all in one 80,000 square foot facility. This show is conveniently positioned between Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton and is sitting on I-71 just 30 minutes east of I-75. Like the old Columbus Show, this location will have eager customers traveling in from Indianapolis, Kentucky, West Virginia, throughout Ohio, and as far North as Michigan.

This show will be heavily advertised as a weekend event. Workshops and guest speakers in conference rooms are planned for the Saturday before the show. Please check the EVENT area of this site for updates on speakers and workshops. The only event on Sunday will be the show. Gather up that group and head on down for a great fun weekend! Anyone thinking they may want to attend this event should make hotel reservations immediately either at the Roberts Centre, or one of the local Hotels due to other events such as weddings and shows that may be taking place at the Convention Center that weekend.

Dealers - Day before set up on Saturday will be available at no extra cost. Because of all the other events in the Roberts Centre, you are encouraged to make Hotel reservations as soon as possible. They can always be cancelled if plans change.
