Welcome to the official Blue & Gray Show site. Whether you’re a casual or avid brewery advertising collector this is THE must-attend show! BEER CANS, BOTTLES, LITHOS, SCRAPERS, LABELS, TRAYS, SIGNS...it’s all here. And more. The video below is just a taste of the many things to do and find at B&G!


A fantastic show is planned for 2014. Collectors can enjoy on-site room-to-room buying, selling, and trading; a huge trade floor; banquet; fabulous eye-catching displays; raffles, and unbeatable hospitality. Download the Registration Form Here. Please note, the old Ramada is now a Howard Johnson's in front, and the back building is now a Knight's Inn. Both will still be used for Blue-Gray. The only change is that those in the back building (Knight's Inn) will have to use their registration office to check in and out.

New in 2014: Will Hartlep is bringing his can repair equipment. If you have cans that need lids or dents you want removed, bring them to Will! He will be in Howard Johnson's Room 114.

Trade Floor: Please note the changed trade-floor table rules for this year. On Thursday and Friday registered guests from outside hotels will be able to set up tables on the upper level mezzanines of the Howard Johnson's. The main room will remain open. On Saturday morning, the main floor will open for tables for those guests staying in the back rooms of the Howard Johnson's and in the Knights Inn.
