Default Illinois or Indiana gun shows..?

I live in East-Central IL. I was wondering if anyone knows of any upcoming gun shows in the state or in IN? I beleive I saw some where there was one in Indy not too long ago.

I went to the ECA website but it hasnt been updated since 2011. Also, I couldnt find if a FOID card is required for entery. My buddy let his lapts and is currently waiting on his new one. Do you know if they'll let him in w/o his FOID? We wont be purchasing, obviously, w/o out one but it would be nice to look and Q&A.

Illinois gun shows

There's lots of good information on the above posted website. Illinois Department of Police. A great FAQ section and all the gun laws you'd ever want to know about Illinois.

There is a show in Princeton tomorrow and Sunday. About 80-90 dealers. It is the Sauk Trail Gun Collectors that put it on. 8:30-4 and 8:30-3.
