Luke Tandy, owner of Skeleton Dust Records, said there’s truly “something for everyone.”

“Having access to thousands of records all at once from all different kinds of vendors you’re sure to find at least something there either for yourself or someone else,” said Tandy.

Vendors from Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis, Louisville and right here in Dayton will also have CDs, tapes, shirts, posters and other music memorabilia for sale, Tandy explained. The event will also feature three DJs spinning records throughout the day.

“(It’s) a really fun event for music lovers to come together and find cool things that they’ve been looking for, but also a big part of it for me is chatting with other people, customers and vendors about music,” said Tandy.

If you’re looking for something in particular, Tandy encourages you to post about it on the event page in order for vendors to better prepare.

The Dayton Record Fair will be held at 922 Valley Street. Admission is $5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and $10 for early bird entry starting at 10 a.m. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page.
