For over 50 years the Rose Bowl Flea Market has been the most well attended and vendor profitable flea markets in the entire country. The market is known all over the world because of it’s uniqueness, quality of vendors and great shoppers of all ages. We can’t think of a better place to have a great outdoor experience than the Rose Bowl AMERICA’S STADIUM. We look forward to a successful future.



Rose Bowl Flea Market update.


We have been in talks with the City of Pasadena and the Rose Bowl Operating Committee  concerning restrictions on a possible  re-opening plan of the event. The issue we have with the Rose bowl Flea Market is the massive size of the event and the fact we fall into the mass gatherings category. We want what is best for all of our vendors and our shoppers to deliver the best buying and selling experience as safely as possible while addressing the current virus guidelines..


We have not been able to complete a set of guidelines that meets everyone’s approval as of yet. We will keep you up to date on this website as things  develop.




The next event date on this page is generated  automatically and does not necessarily reflect the opening date. Look for that announcement on this update page.
