Trade-O-Ree Calendar

If you have never heard of a Trade-O-Ree and like to trade scout stuff...... read on. Scattered around the country are exciting events generally called Trade-O-Rees (or abbreviated to TOR's). Ahead of you is a weekend of non-stop trading. Check'em out! and bring your buddies and your scoutmaster, too. A trade-o-ree is an event that is generally held in a big hall, hotel banquet room, national guard armory, college or church gym. They are held for the primary purpose of scout memorabilia collecting ...... buying, selling, or trading. Some are put on by avid collectors, some are sponsored by troops or BSA Councils, and some are put on by scout collecting associations. If you are taking your troop, check this out and note this on your tour permit. But, most of all bring your scout stuff and have fun!

There is generally a fee for renting a table at these events to formally put up your items for sale or trade. But for novice collectors who just want to come in and browse and trade out of their day pack, there is sometimes an entry fee of $1-5. Tables generally need to be reserved in advance, but walk-ins are welcome without any reservations. It is a good idea to call ahead to check with the sponsor to make sure all the details are correct and to get a map.

This list is provided to you as a service. We try our best to include all known events as accurately as possible. We list all TOR's that we have printed information about. Please call ahead to check with the sponsor of the event to be sure all details are correct and to reserve table space. If you find errors or omissions to this list, please call us. If you want to try to meet us at a TOR..... Streamwood will be attending and displaying at the events shown with 5 STARS (*****) after the show name.
