Nestled in the heart of Southern Indiana, the Corydon Extravaganza has established itself as a nexus for lovers of the vintage, the unique and the artistically repurposed. Held three times a year, including a special Christmas Market, this festival invites collectors and enthusiasts to explore over 200 vendors, come rain or shine.
Founded in 2013 by Joe and Lindsey Poe, owners of Old Town Store and Poe's Vintage Goods, what began as a traditional antique show has evolved into a multi-faceted experience. Hailed as one of Southern Indiana's premier vintage and antique markets, the event combines the thrill of the hunt with the excitement of an art show, the indulgence of food trucks and the sophistication of wineries. This tapestry of experiences culminates in an unparalleled shopping adventure.
Admission to the Extravaganza costs a modest fee, but the rewards are extraordinary. Beyond the tangible allure of goods waiting to be discovered, the festival exudes a vibrant party atmosphere, replete with music, entertainment and a cornucopia of food and drink to sample. The emphasis on local products and specialties encourages visitors to take their time throughout the market to fully enjoy the gastronomic offerings.
Diversity characterizes the array of collectibles on display: indoor and outdoor furniture that whispers tales of bygone eras, toys that resonate with the laughter of yesteryear, vintage comic books, advertising memorabilia that captures the zeitgeist of its time, and an assortment of clothing, cameras, jewelry, and fabrics. Each item promises a story, a glimpse into the past, waiting to be claimed by a new guardian.
The Corydon Extravaganza is more than a market; it's a sanctuary for creativity. It provides ample space for craft and art, and fosters a community where vendors and artisans are not just sellers, but tellers of history and mentors to those who wish to delve into the realm of upcycling and restoration.
For those with an appreciation for the past or a passion for reinvention, the Corydon Extravaganza is an event not to be missed. Its mix of vintage treasures, artisan craftsmanship, and the joy of reclamation is sure to open wallets and fill hearts. Here, the spirit of the old is not only preserved but celebrated and given new life.
