About the event

The Rose Bowl Flea Market has been a Pasadena staple since its origin fifty years ago. Tag along for a journey through city and flea market history as Keri regales you with captivating stories and facts surrounding this wonderful event and others like it. Find out how this particular flea market came to be at the Rose Bowl Stadium, along with some background on the stadium itself; for instance, did you know the Rose Bowl started the “bowl” tradition seen in events like the Citrus Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Sugar Bowl? Keri will also showcase some of the greatest flea market finds (think Antique Roadshow!) such as a crummy painting within in a frame hiding a secret worth $2.42 million.

Take in tales of Pasadena’s past and some of the significant buildings lining the path between the Rose Bowl Stadium and Old Pasadena. Pass by the Gamble House, which is comprised of over seventeen types of wood, and has a former carriage house (now the gift shop) you might recognize as Doc Brown’s 1955 garage/laboratory from Back to the Future. Visit the expansive Wrigley Mansion and beautiful Castle Green and learn what common trait links them together. Book now to join Keri and discover all these intriguing details and more!
