    Where is the show being held this year?

    Due to Covid, we will be holding our 2022 show inside the Fred Oldfield Western Heritage & Art Center. We are still on the Washington State Fairgrounds, inside the Red Gate, just down 9th Ave SW from the Gold Gate and the Expo Hall where we have been in the past.

    Yes! Steve Mitzner will be with us this year for a Live Event. The Auction will also be live online if you can’t join us in person. You will be able to bid right along with the Live Auction while comfortable at home.

    What does the Benefit Auction benefit?

    The Oldfield Show is proudly sponsored by the Fred Oldfield Western Heritage and Art Center. Our mission is advancing Western art and all art through the example set by Fred Oldfield. Our vision is to provide a creative outlet where the history, passion, and art of Fred Oldfield’s life will live on in all generations. We offer Art Classes to school age children and people of all ages. We also have over a hundred pieces of Fred Oldfield’s Art from throughout his life as well as dioramas set up depicting life as Fred experienced it in the early 1900’s with many artifacts and northwest history lessons. The Benefit Auction supplies the Center with much needed income to keep our art classes and western history alive.
