March 14, 2010, and 2nd Sunday of Every Month through August


pasadena rose bowl flea market

Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market, 1001 Rose Bowl Dr., Pasadena, CA. Cost: $8 - up.

Pasadena--Pasadena's Rose Bowl is more than just a place to watch a ball game. Most the year it hosts events that range festivals to the famed Flea Market, one of the biggest, brightest and most esteemed flea markets in the U.S. This event is the shopping mart of the stars, some say. Among the celebrities spotted at this event are Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Ashley Olsen. Cher, Clint Eastwood, Whoopi Goldberg, Rob Schneider, George Hamilton, and Maria Shriver, to name a few.


With more than 2,500 vendor booths selling everything from quality antiques to the latest clothing styles, youu'll be amazed at the quality of items, and the A-list of people attending this shopping spree.


While you are welcome to come in your blue jeans and flip flops, the shopping just doesn't get much better. Add to that Pasadena's fabulous weather and the lovely outdoor setting, and you'll find that Rose Bowl Flea Market is addictive. Thankfully there are 6 event dates throughout the summer months so if you miss one, you'll have more shopping ops.


Collectors to novice shoppers attending this event held the second Sunday of the month are amazed how it seems to just get better, even after nearly 40 years of growth.  Proud of its merchants and their wares, the event planner, R.G. Canning Attractions, assures visitors to the the shopping extravaganza that they'll discover the massive inventory far exceeds the traditional swap-meets and garage sales.


Some vendors own traditional brick-and-mortar stores, but participate in this event because it's one of the best. New and original merchandise is brought in continuously every month in the same way stores receive new inventory on their shelves and racks.  In flea market fashion, Rose Bowl vendors begin setting up their tents and booths before sunrise, and you, the buyer, can pay more to get in early and avoid the massive crowds that pour in when the gates open around 9 a.m.
