This Memorial Day, the St. Louis Symphony Volunteer Association presents Gypsy Caravan for the 40th straight year.
A city within a city is created at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) for shoppers at the Midwest's largest antique, craft and flea market. It is located at 1 University Drive, just off of Interstate 70 and I-170. There is ample public parking.
Because Gypsy Caravan is a nationally-recognized fair, vendors come from a number of states and offer everything from trinkets to treasures, birdhouses to bureaus.
Gypsy Caravan is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.. Tickets: $10 admission from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; $20 early bird admission from 7 to 9 a.m. Children under 12 are free at all times.
