The Porky Show is open for business

In 2021, state mandates surrounding the spread COVID-19 forced The Porky Show, the nation’s largest and longest running police and fire badge and patch collectibles show, to be postponed until 2022.

Now on Saturday, January 15, the Claremont Police Department will host the 40th police and fire annual memorabilia show, bringing back the longstanding tradition.

Beginning at 8 a.m., Taylor Hall, 1775 N. Indian Hill Blvd., will be transformed into a vending hall where all can come to find that special collectable from a fire or police unit. The exhibit usually showcases police and fire badges, patches, toy cars, buckles, photos, historical documents, hats, helmets, handcuffs, antique batons, mini badges, t-shirts and pins. There will be over 50 vendors that patrons can support and over 100 tables to view said collectables.

Admission is $5 per person and those who reserve a vendor’s table [for $55] will have their admission covered. For more information on the hall’s layout or to reserve a vendor’s spot, visit

By the end of Saturday’s show, proceeds that exceed the exhibit will go toward supporting the Claremont Police Explorers program. The showcase is schedule to end at 3 p.m.
