Next Show

October 16–17, 2021


The Austin Record Convention is the largest sale of recorded music in the USA. From the 78's of the 1930s, to CDs (and probably even a few 8-track tapes!), there are over one million 78s, 45s, LPs, CDs, cassettes, posters, collectibles and music-related memorabilia available here than at any one time, anywhere else in the country.

Over 300 different dealers from all over the U.S.A. and Europe are spread out over 40,000 square feet of floor space. The show is so big that to see everything takes most of the weekend!
