A Brief History


Now in its 28th year of publishing, The Carousel News & Trader has grown from from an 8 page photo copy hand-out in 1985 to its current glory of 48 glossy, full color pages in 2013.

If you are a lover of carousels or historic amusement parks, you will not want to miss a single issue of The Carousel News & Trader magazine.  In addition to the informative stories you find posted on our website, The Carousel News & Trader magazine gives you hundreds of colorful carousel photographs each month featuring the hundreds of historic carousels that have now become American treasures, and the hundreds more that are gone, but not forgotten.

In addition to the rich carousel history and photographs you will find each month, The Carousel News & Trader will keep you up-to-date on current happenings in the carousel and amusement park world.  There are also informative columns on carousel carving, collecting and other topics of interest.

Beyond being a pleasure to read and enjoy each month, each issue of The Carousel News & Trader is a collector's item unto itself as it chronicles in photographs and text the ongoing preservation and perpetuation of the classic merry-go-rounds and family fun parks in American history.

If you are a carousel lover, you should treat yourself to a subscription to The Carousel News & Trader magazine today.  Even if you do not consider yourself a carousel enthusiast, for just $35 for 12 monthly issues, you really should see what you are missing.

The Carousel News & Trader was started in 1985 by the late Nancy Loucks as an expression of her love for carousels and her vision of the need for an independent source for carousel news and interaction among carousel enthusiasts all over the world.

The first issue was an eight page black & white newsletter that was distributed free to introduce people to the concept. It grew slowly at first, but when it became a color publication it really took off. By the early 1990s there were thousands of readers all over the world.

After Nancy passed away, her husband, Walt, continued to run the magazine. After 21 years, it was time for Walt to retire. In June of 2006, Walt sold the magazine to The Carousel Store.

Under the new ownership, there are now again 12 monthly issues each year including the special Carvers Issue in March and the Buyers Guide in April.

The magazine continues to be the best print source for all aspects of carousel related news and information and now offers its readers 48-plus pages each month, all in brilliant full-color. The publication, as always, welcomes stories and input from its readers as well as leads on carousel happenings of any kind.
