Carnival Glass Clubs and Associations

A good way to gain more knowledge about carnival glass is to join a carnival glass club or association. There are about fifteen carnival glass clubs worldwide with most of them being in U.S. Many collectors join several or more clubs to receive the club’s newsletters which feature articles about carnival glass.  Each club has an annual convention with educational programs where you can learn about carnival glass and meet other collectors.  Conventions usually conclude with an auction featuring 2- 500 lots of very collectible and quality carnival glass.  For more information - click on any of the following carnival glass club web sites :
