Guitaranooga is the Annual Guitar Show held in Chattanooga, TN.

Vendors go here for booth information:

What is a Guitar Show?

A guitar show is much like other trade shows where companies have booths for attendees to see and try out products. Guitar shows focus more on used and vintage instruments but new instruments are welcome too.

Sounds great, how much to get in?

$10 Adults, kids under 12 get in free!

When and where?

The November 2016 show at the Chattanooga Choo Choo was a huge success! Over 325 attendees and all booths were sold out. The date and location for the 2017 show have not been selected yet. One thing is for sure, we will need a bigger room next time.

Can I bring an instrument to sell?

Sure! That's what it's all about. You can bring something to buy, sell, or trade with any of the vendors. No deals with other attendees allowed.

Is it only guitars?

No, there are amplifiers, effects pedals, and usually other stringed instruments like basses, banjos, mandolins, dobros, ukuleles, lap steels, violins, dulcimers, etc. Sometimes there is music memorabilia, vinyl records, and even non-stringed instruments like drums or saxophones.

I have a lot of instruments I would like to sell but I don't own a store or a music company, can I get a booth?

Yes. Booths are available for reserve to anyone who fills out the vendor application form and submits it with the reservation fee. Vendor application form available for download here:
