Philatelists of all ages are placing a stamp on Denver. What’s a philatelist? A stamp collector, of course. And hundreds will be at the Rocky Mountain Stamp Show on Friday to Sunday, May 27 to 29 at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds. Admission (and parking) is totally FREE.
The Show is a lot of fun. Stamps are snapshots of the past and present and can tell the story or a person, place or time. Many can take you to exotic destinations or on a journey into space.
During the show, seminars will be given on everything from Mickey Mouse to the Mexican Independence War.
About 35 dealers will showcase their wares and “What’s in Your Attic?” offers FREE, no obligation, advice for those who want to learn more about inherited stamp albums and old family collections.
Young stamp collectors can attend Stamp Camp Denver for kids ages 8 to 14, a series of hands-on activities, stamp stories and identification, care of stamps and their value, creating 3-D exhibits and earning “Stamp Camp Cash” to use in a real auction.
Hours are: Friday & Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
25690 E. Quincy Ave., Aurora.
