Grand Opening Sunday! Shriners Antique & Crafters Flea Market

public welcome!

The Shriners Antique & Crafters Flea Market kicks off THIS SUNDAY MAY 27th and continues every last Sunday of the month through October. It is a Fundraiser for the Pittsburgh Syria Shriners Temple and for the Units, Clubs and Caravans that help and participate. We’re looking for visitors, crafters and flea marketers of all types. Stalls are $25 a month for a 24” x 20” booth area. The Market runs rain or shine, hopefully it shines!

2018 Dates:

  • May 27
  • June 24
  • July 29
  • Aug. 26
  • Sept. 30
  • Oct. 28
  • syria shriners flea market

    The Shriners Antique & Crafters Flea Market is the creation of Flea Market Chairman and Syria Shriner Dennis Conrad.

    What You'll Discover at our Flea Market

    “Our event is for anybody who gets a kick out of flea markets. We’re hoping to serve people who are looking for unique historical items, crafts, tools, paintings, we’ll have people who make jewelry, another person will have Swarovski crystal. Basically, it’s for people who are looking to buy or sell items at a bargain. Sometimes you find what you’re looking for and sometimes not. This is more than a craft show. People are bringing someone else’s treasure.”


    For vendor inquiries, please contact Peg McKillop at 724-274-7000 or email Peg at mmckillop(at)syriashriners.org

    Dennis says another popular item is collectible die-cast cars. Dennis himself is a collector of Texaco die-cast cars and trucks. He visits the Fleatiques at Tour Ed Mine and Museum in Tarentum almost every month. “My wife likes flea markets. She collects depression glass,” Dennis said. His daughter collects china.

    Vendors and visitors will find they’re set up on asphalt, no fields or lawns. There is ample parking, and indoor restrooms (as opposed to no facilities!)

    The Shrine Clowns will be attending to entertain the kids. “We're trying to make it a destination place,” Dennis said.

    Expectations of Flea Market's Growth

    “We would like to regularly see 200 vendors and grow it as big as any of the locally large flea markets in the area. Our goal is to establish this as a continuous fundraiser for the Syria Temple.”


    The Shriners in Pittsburgh have long held antiques and craft shows at both the old Syria Mosque in Oakland and the new Pittsburgh Shrine Center in Cheswick. The old will soon feel new again in more ways than one!

    Dennis was quick to mention the great help that he has received in his effort to reestablish the Shrine as a go-to destination for flea market fans. “Joe Micikas and John Handshue have been very helpful, and of course Peg McKillop has been very helpful. There are many that are working hard to help make this event come together,” he said.

    Supporting the Shriners Supports Shriners Hospitals

    Dennis hopes that you’ll stop by to browse or reserve a booth to sell your wares in support of the Syria Shrine, and by doing so, help us support the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.

    “The focus is on helping the Temple, and the Temple supports the hospital system,” Dennis said. “That is why we exist. We persevere to keep our hospitals open and make sure that children get the best possible care they can get. The fact is that we take care of any child in need. People must realize the most well-kept secret is that our hospitals are out there helping kids, and that is why is we support them."

    So come on out this Sunday and every last Sunday through October and give us a look! We’re putting our best foot forward and were open to suggestions. Please let us know how we can improve our event to suit you. The plan is to ask each vendor every Sunday what they think of the event and collect feedback on ways to make this the best flea market it can be.

    Historic & Mysterious.. Pittsburgh Shrine Center Announces Rebranding, New Website

    public welcome! , Shrine News

    Historic & Mysterious.. Pittsburgh Shrine Center Announces Rebranding, New Website
    Event planners seeking a flexible wedding & special event venue in Greater Pittsburgh will now find a familiar face with a fresh new look.

    PITTSBURGH, PA November 29, 2017 --- The Pittsburgh Shrine Center, our region’s premier wedding and special events venue, proudly announces it has undergone a rebranding and has debuted a new website developed to enhance the event planning experience for its clients. Formerly known as the Syria Shrine Center, The Pittsburgh Shrine Center name was chosen as a reflection of the mutual admiration shared between this historical venue and its generations of clients from Western Pennsylvania.

    Supported by stunning imagery, the new responsive website at www.pghshrinecenter.com highlights the features and benefits which truly make the Pittsburgh Shrine Center one of Pittsburgh’s most well-known and memorable wedding and special events venues. 

    The new logo incorporates a distinctive and iconic symbol of the Pittsburgh Shrine Center’s storied history: its magnificent chandelier. The logo aims to capture the attention of visitors online just as our chandelier does for guests in the Pittsburgh Shrine Center Grand Ballroom.
      
    “I think the Pittsburgh Shrine Center is Pittsburgh’s hidden gem. With its rich history, it needs to be showcased,” said Don Green, member of the Pittsburgh Shrine Center board of directors and the Pittsburgh Shriners Divan. “Many of Pittsburgh’s great cultural events have taken place under our historic chandelier. Serving the special events needs of our community and supporting our Shriners Hospitals is what we do. Any bride or groom would be proud to be a part of Pittsburgh history here at the Pittsburgh Shrine Center.”

    “I am struck by how beautiful and elegant so many of the events are here,” said Bill Branthoover, member of the Pittsburgh Shrine Center Board of Directors and the Pittsburgh Shriners Divan. “People may not know that we can accommodate events from banquets to business seminars to picnics and more. The outdoor Pavilion is wonderful for concerts. Children’s parties are fantastic because of the room. This rebranding and website surely increases awareness of the facility’s versatility and its availability to the public.”

    "Our goal with this effort is to reintroduce the Pittsburgh Shrine Center to new generations of Pittsburghers. Modernizing our digital communication platforms will surely help clients discover the Pittsburgh Shrine Center," said James Elmer, Pittsburgh Shrine Center Public Relations Committee member.
