Rummage-A-Rama! promises plenty of variety this weekend: January 26th from 9AM to 5PM and the 27th from 9AM to 4PM at the State Fair Park Wisconsin Products Pavilion.
Admission to Rummage-A-Rama! is $4 per person, but patrons who bring a donation of two non-perishable food items for Hunger Task Force get in for $2. The Hunger Task Force is currently on a mission to collect 100,000 jars of peanut butter to help meet food pantry needs this winter, and Rummage-A-Rama! customers are encouraged to help this cause. “If each customer brings just one jar of peanut butter this weekend, we can contribute another four or five thousand jars toward that goal,” says Gill. Since its return in 2009, Rummage-A-Rama! has collected 68,000 pounds of food through their “two-dollars-plus-two-cans” promotion. As always, kids age 12 and under attend Rummage-A-Rama! for FREE.
FREE parking is available for all Rummage-A-Rama! customers in the North Lot by the Pettit National Ice Center via Gate 6; however, it requires an uphill walk to the Wisconsin Products Pavilion. Preferred parking is available within the park for a $5 fee, regulated by Imperial Parking, by entering Gate 5 off 84th Street.
