The 30th Annual Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction will take place in Shubert Alley and Along West 44th and 45th Streets on Sunday, September 25.

Produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction is an outdoor market where theater fans have the opportunity to take home one-of-a-kind show-biz memorabilia, meet Broadway stars, and bid throughout the day on exclusive Broadway items from props and costume pieces to backstage experiences.

The event will run from 10am-7pm with new silent auctions starting every 30 minutes throughout the day. The live auction begins at 5pm. For the first time in several years, the Grand Auction will be back in Shubert Alley.

For the first time ever, the market will stretch the length of West 45th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, in addition to its traditional place in the same block of West 44th Street. The autograph table and photo booth will once again be on the outdoor deck of Junior's restaurant on West 45th Street at the entrance to Shubert Alley.

Shows and organizations participating in the flea market, items to be offered in the grand auction, and stars set to appear at the autograph table and photo booth will be announced in September.

Last year's Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction raised an all-time high $756,655. Since 1987, the 29 editions of this highly anticipated annual event have raised $11.8 million.
