Is there a fee for my kids/grandkids to go to the show?

Kids under the age of 16 are admitted freely with a paying adult.

Can I use my credit card to purchase tickets on-site or to purchase goods from vendors?

On-site ticket purchases are cash only. To purchase a ticket via credit card you must purchase online or simply click here. Most vendors selling goods at the show accept all major credit cards. Helpful tip: make your bank is aware that you are planning to make purchases at a trade show (vendors are located across the united states so each transaction will show as being processed in that state causing confusion on your banks end).

Is there seating available for all seminars?

Seminars offered with admission are first come first serve and have +/- 30 chairs available. If you are looking for a good spot our advice is to get there early. Paid seminars only allow for a certain number of participants so so make your payment early to ensure your reservation.

If I am submitting a woodworking item for the Project Challenge, when do I drop it off?

Project Challenge items can be dropped off 1 hour prior to the show beginning Friday & Saturday only. Judging occurs all day Saturday and prizes are awarded Saturday before the close of the show. All times must be removed from the show floor before 3:00pm on Sunday.

If I am volunteering with a club/guild can I go to the show all weekend?

The person arranging the booth space for the club, or the club contact, will submit a list of volunteers throughout the show, so that we know you are a volunteer. Any additional time on the show floor, when you are not volunteering requires a paid admission ticket.

Are tickets purchased online transferable?

Show tickets are not transferable between show attendees. Each ticket is coded so that the same individual that uses the ticket, on their first day of entry, must be the same person using the ticket throughout the weekend.

Is there a discount for veterans or senior citizens?

Unfortunately we do not offer any veteran or senior citizen discount. As we’re sure you’re aware our audience is made up of a large percentage of veterans and senior citizens. While we appreciate their service and their wisdom without their monetary contribution we would be unable to provide our show.

When you purchase paid education whether it be for $50 or $25 your $12 admission is included.
