The 30th annual WIN Magazine Memorabilia Show will be held at the NCAA Wrestling Championships on Friday and Saturday, March 20-21 in Minneapolis, Minn.

The annual event between sessions of the Division I Championships will once again be apart of the NCAA’s annual free Fan Festival. This year’s event will be at the historic Armory, where the Minneapolis Lakers used to play NBA basketball before moving to Los Angeles.

The beautifully renovated Armory is three to four blocks straight out the main exit of U.S. Bank Stadium. Heavy traffic is anticipated each afternoon with the record-breaking 30,000+ fans in attendance at the Championships. As many as 25,000 fans per year have attended the Fan Fest. 

As usual, the Fan Fest is the place to be between sessions as it is a great place for fans to meet with friends to get food/drinks between sessions, visit the 50-plus Exhibitor spots featuring memorabilia, apparel and training devices, watch USA Wrestling’s Senior-level practices, get autographs, and take in the various stage-programming events.
