List of Dollhouse Miniature Shows in the U.S. - All That I Could Find

Miniature Shows are So Fun!

One of the parts of the miniature hobby that can bring extra joy to any miniaturist is a local dollhouse show! Some shows help raise money for clubs, others are put on by organizers just trying to bring people together. No matter who is sponsoring the show - MINIATURE SHOWS ARE FUN!!!

Don't See Your Show Here - Let Me Know!


This list has been compiled from a bunch of sources but by just one person. It is almost certain that I have missed some shows. If you know of a show that is not on this list, but should be, please contact me at the email address below and let me know! I will need as much information as you can give me and I'll get it added right away!

Some Things About This List

This is just a list of shows that I found around the internet. I do not take any responsibility for whether you will have fun/spend too much money/find the miniatures of your dreams at these shows or not.  But seriously, how could you not have fun at a miniature show? :)

I did not include miniature cruises, or any miniature shows outside of the United States. Not that those aren't probably lots of fun too, but they're outside of the scope of this list.  

I will try to keep the list updated as much as I can, but I HIGHLY recommend checking out the contact information for a show before heading there just because you saw it on my list.

Any broken links or shows that aren't running anymore, let me know, please! Thank you!

Elmer's House for Christmas & Financing

It's here! It's here!!!

For Christmas, I got my very own "Elmer's House" shell. It's pretty much exactly as the plans were, only it's on a foundation and has a staircase.

I am so excited to get started on this little house. It's everything I wanted it to be.

The original plans don't call for a staircase, but I have a "thing" about staircases in my dollhouses (if I have a sudden shrinking accident, I want to be able to get to all the floors.) So it now has a turned staircase in it.

But dollhouses can be a bit expensive to finish, and I want to see if I can get my miniatures to sort of pay for themselves. So....

I have bunches and bunches of miniatures going up on eBay to finance the Elmer's House project. If you're in need of some random minis, you can find my eBay stuff here -

Off to the eBay mines. I'll be trying to get stuff up all day today (Saturday, the 12th). And then hopefully I can get to work getting this finished. I have some plans... oh do I have plans.

Wish me luck! So it begins...
