2021 National Fossil Expo HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED AND RELOCATED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC


EXPO 2021 has been rescheduled to October 22-24, 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. We are hoping that the arrival of the vaccines in mid 2021 will allow things to return to some sort of normal by the fall. The show will be moved to the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Illinois. This is a newer facility, with more square footage, restrooms, and easy access for the set up and tear down processes.

Expo 2021 new date and location announcement.


This was a difficult decision to make, but given the circumstances, MAPS wanted to err on the side of health and safety for all of our visitors, members, and vendors.
