43rd Annual DECOY SHOW

Minnesota Decoy Collectors Association

Our group was formed in the 1960’s to unite those interested in collecting, preserving and documenting the history of decoys created in the years gone by.


Two mailings a year that include a collector membership booklet and newsletters highlighting information and then the outcome of our annual decoy show gathering.  You will have everything you need to participate in our show, both as an attendee or purveyor, as well as, how to attend and/or consign to our decoy auction.

Your membership also supports you as a fellow decoy collector - keeping our fraternity and interest alive.
