ORAPEX 2019 Theme: Elizabethan Era Philately

Each year, ORAPEX has a theme. For the 2019 show, the theme will be Elizabethan Era Philately.

ORAPEX boasts about 40 stamp dealers in its bourse and runs an impressive series of society meetings, seminars and study groups. Bring your children to the Youth Booth to get them started on collecting! The show's awards reception is a highlight of the weekend and a great chance for everyone to socialize after the exhibits have been judged. (Awards Reception tickets will be available at the Welcome Booth at the show.) Please join us as we celebrate philately -- the hobbies of stamp collecting and postal history collecting.
