      Frequently Asked Questions
      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.

      Will there be a Live Auction?

      Yes! Steve Mitzner will be with us this year on October 15th. 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.

      Will there be Artist booths?
      Yes! This year our show is at the Fred Oldfield Western Heritage & Art Center. We only have a limited amount of space for our artists, but we are hoping to have around 15 artists in Action for you to enjoy. They will be in attendance October 8th & 9th and October 15th & 16th.
      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 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. Find out more about the Fred Oldfield Western Heritage and Art Center at Fredoldfieldcenter.org

      What is the Preview Party & Wine Reception?

      The Preview Party & Wine Reception is a time when patrons can come down and see the Auction pieces in person. It will be held Saturday October 8th at 5pm. We will hang all the Auction pieces (Silent & Live) at the Fred Oldfield Center in Puyallup, WA (located on 9th Avenue SW in the Washington State Fair & Convention center grounds inside the Red Gate). In continuing our theme of Down Home Hospitality, We will have appetizers, drinks and entertainment all day long. You wiill also be able to visit with our 15 or so artists in action!
