Quartermania?         What the heck is this? A Quartermania is a cross between an auction and a raffle, where you (the guest) “bid” quarter win a prize of goods. When you check in and register you will pick up a check in bag that has a paddle with a number that is used for your individual bidding on the items you want to win. There is a chip that matches that number and it is placed in the “Chip Bucket”.


The Auctioneer has a numbered chip for each paddle issued at registration, to draw the winning number for each item. The auctioneer then begins by holding up a product and tells a little about the highlights along with the bid amount. Bids range from 1 to 4 quarters. If you would like to bid on that item, you put the corresponding number of quarters in the collection tin. THEN HOLD UP YOUR PADDLE(s) and wait for your numbers to be called! When your lucky number is called and you have placed a bid, you WIN that item! After each item all numbered chips are returned to the Chip Bucket for the next item. Quarters are picked up after each Vendor has finished their auction turn.

Vendors are also available to sell product ready to take home the day of the event or to place orders for desired items, schedule demonstrations, fundraisers, and shows with you and your friends.


Organizations have many drawings for various items, so it is an instant party! Come and join in the fun!
