Building A Five Star Militaria Show

The third annual Greater New Orleans Militaria Show will be a 200 plus table event featuring military antiques, military collectibles, vintage weapons and museum exhibits as well as educational displays from numerous time periods and nations. The show will be located at the beautiful Castine Center in Mandeville, Louisiana on October 7th & 8th of 2023. Hosted by Old Patriot Militaria and Heartland Militaria Shows, our third annual event will be larger than all previous shows and will feature dealers from nearly 20 states! Some of which are the most well known and respected names in our hobby. The focus of our third annual Greater New Orleans Militaria Show is to build on the success of our previous shows, while continuing to establish it as a five-star event centered around military antiques. This show will expand further into the realm of history education, philanthropy and historic preservation, while welcoming seasoned and novice collectors alike into our hobby. Our ultimate goal is to develop the Greater New Orleans Militaria Show into a true military history event that becomes the “MAX” Show of the South. In our unyielding efforts to do this, the 2023 Greater New Orleans Militaria Show will not only feature world class military antiques available to all who attend, but will also be an educational and historically significant military history event worthy of both national and international attention.

Moving Our Hobby Forward

The Greater New Orleans Militaria Show, our dealers and our partners are dedicated to the education, preservation and heartfelt appreciation of military history. We accomplish our goal by encouraging and actively promoting the display, exhibition, conservation and collecting of historic military artifacts. Many of our dealers and partners are some of the most trusted and recognized names in the world of military antiques. This unquestionable knowledge, experience and passion for our hobby has led to a number of us being published in various books, journals and other periodicals, with many of us continuing to be featured not only in print, but also on several television shows.

We are veteran owned, family companies that strive to provide the absolute best militaria show experience to both our dealers and the visiting public. We have a combined total of over thirty years of experience in buying and selling militaria. Matt has been hosting his successful Heartland Militaria & Bad Shot Gun Shows for many years and is now partnering with Old Patriot Militaria to bring a show like no other to the bayou country!
