A big thank you to the over 7,500 public attendees / members that attended our first show back to the Roc Dome in January! This was a record show for attendance and hopefully it will continue for future shows at this great “new” venue.
Those who attended found the newly remodeled Roc Dome to be practically a new facility from what it used to be. Get excited for even more improvements to the facility as they are not done yet!
Our next show will be May 6 & 7, 2017 at the Roc Dome. Vendor registration forms and additional information will be available soon for this show.
Tentative dates for following shows are September 30 & Oct. 1, 2017
