Wheaton All Night Flea Market August 16th, 2014
Chicago Illinois Flea Market Dealers, Chicago Illinois Antique Market, Chicago movie stars, and more!
"It's just a unique, fun way to spend an evening," said Robert Zurko, head of Zurko Promotions.
The 38th annual event opens at 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug.17th, and runs through 4 a.m. Sunday, Aug.18th, at the DuPage County Fairgrounds, 2015 Manchester Road.
Zurko and his team took over the market's planning 14 years ago and have since developed it into what he says is the only one of its kind in the country.
"It's quite an adventure," Zurko said.
Eager shoppers can gain full access to hundreds of flea market vendors, more than 20 food stalls and live entertainment
"We've got some dealers coming from as far as Texas," said Jim Decker of Zurko Promotions.
In recent years, the group has begun to focus on appearances from celebrities and musicians to entertain the late-night crowd. Previous All Night Flea Market events have included actors such as Lou Ferrigno from TV's "The Incredible Hulk" Larry Thomas, the Soup Nazi from "Seinfeld," and Butch Patrick "The Munsters" to meet and greet guests.
There also will be musical performances during the market!
Zurko and Decker are not the only ones raving about the annual event.
The Wheaton All Night Flea Market has even been designated as one of the top 10 flea markets in the country by the Discovery Channel and National Geographic. The market typically draws between 6,000 and 8,000 people over the course of its 12 hours.
"Treasure hunting at night," Zurko said. "It's all about treasure hunting, that's why people go to these."
If you can't make it this weekend, be sure to put the first Haunted Halloween Flea Market on your calendar.

2014 All Night Flea Market Guests!
|Jon Provost is a national treasure. The check shirt and jeans he wore for seven years as Timmy on Lassie hang in The Smithsonian next to Archie Bunker’s chair. Lassie continues to air in 50 countries and Jon still receives letters and email from fans of all ages around the world.
Jon’s acting career began at age two when cast as Jane Wyman and Sterling Hayden’s son in So Big. During his career as a child actor and teen heart throb, he worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest film stars: Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, William Holden, Natalie Wood, Robert Redford, Rod Steiger, Anita Ekberg, Clint Eastwood, Kurt Russell; and on television with stars like Kim Novak, Jack Benny, James Garner and everyone’s favorite talking horse, Mr. Ed. By the time Jon turned 19, he’d worked in show biz 16 years and had seen it all: the trials of child celebrity; the social strain; the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll. He left the only life he’d known for college in Northern California, eventually settling to raise a family in Sonoma County. He returned to Hollywood for occasional television work. Of his many accomplishments, he is most proud of his children, Ryan, 30, and Katie, 28.
Jon’s altruism stretches to children’s hospitals, animal shelters, and closest to his heart, Canine Companions for Independence, which provides extraordinary service dogs to the handicapped. He has served on its Board of Directors for more than 20 years. Jon has received numerous awards, among them the Allen Ludden Humanitarian Award presented by Betty White, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Youth in Film Association and his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In 2007, Jon celebrated his 50th anniversary as Timmy with the release of his autobiography, Timmy’s in the Well which he wrote with his wife, Hollywood writer Laurie Jacobson. Recently he had roles in two films, gave voice to an elf and a reindeer in a series of animated children’s films and served as a judge in the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. In 2014, he is doing a print campaign for AARP. He is also excited to be playing Santa Claus in a children’s film to be shot in May. Still a sought-after celebrity guest on TV and radio, Jon also appears at fundraisers, autograph shows, film festivals, pet expos and other events throughout the year.
