So, the longer your listing is on our website, the better chances of
it being noticed in plenty of time to make arrangements to vend or to attend.
Generic listings are now referred to as ‘Basic’ listings
Regarding Basic and Highlighted Basic Listings
As of August 27, 2020, basic listings are no longer free, the cost for basic listings is now $10.00 per listing. Because of this cost increase, the cost of highlighted basic listings has increased.
*NOTE: The Date and Venue Changes Policy is subject to the owner’s right to override.
Basic listings are generic, in text format only. They are comprised of the dates, state, city, venue and address, vendor table information, show hours and admission prices, and contact information for vendors to contact the promoter. Basic listings do not include sales hypes such as food & beverage, free giveaways, and the likes, door prizes and the likes, or social media links (unless social media is the only online presence the promoter has). Update 2/11/2021: Basic listings will also include the show title.
Please see the BASIC LISTING FORMAT EXAMPLE BELOW for how to type up your basic/highlighted listing information.

Gunshows-USA.com was created in 2000 as a hobby-free Tripod site using the free module Composer in Netscape. I switched the domain registration and hosting to paid services in 2001 and have been building it ever since to the point where it became the number one go-to site for info to find gun shows throughout the United States. From the beginning, I wanted to ensure that we listed all shows regardless of size and have offered free listings for 20 years. Unfortunately during the COVID shutdowns over the last few months, we have been maintaining the information on cancellations, etc., we have been taking in little to no income. Therefore we find it necessary to begin charging a minimum charge of $10.00 per show listing (generic/basic listings are now $10.00 per show to list).
In addition, in the past, we would run cancellations, rescheduled, and/or relocated shows at no cost. If the only change is the date there will be a $10.00 charge. We will charge the full banner price if it is necessary to completely redo the graphic on the banner. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that we will be able to continue being the best go-to site for gun show information on the internet.
GunShows-USA is America-based, American-owned, and American-operated.
