August in Portland, OR

Anyone feel like they are in dolly withdrawal?  I think I am, so that makes me doubly excited for the show in Portland on August 19.

Important Show Updates

We have 2 announcements impacting show for the rest of 2017.

  1. SAN JOSE, CA We have been unable to find the right location for the show in San Jose despite 2 years of effort and a whole lot of input.  The search was like the story of the 3 bears – either too large, too expensive – but never ‘just right’ or even close.  Many have asked why we can’t just go back to the fairground … basically the same story – too large, too expensive, crazy taxation and, and, and, and …  For these reasons, I have abandoned the search and have cancelled the show permanently.  This is very sad for me, but I honestly feel that the time will be better spent by offering a better event in Pleasanton and in Roseville.
  2. ROSEVILLE, CA BIG surprise from the fairground a couple of weeks ago.  The new owners (Placer County Tourism) have decided to do a major facelift to the existing fairground buildings all at once (instead of in stages) and have closed the facility to events through the end of the year.  YIKES!!  Jean spent time researching and going to facilities throughout the Sacramento area.  She was unable to find a location with Fall dates available that would work with our schedule – even looking in to a Christmas show type of event location – not available.  So we have moved the Roseville fall date to February 24, 2018 in the newly renovated Fairgrounds buildings.  This show is NOT cancelled, but is moved to the February date.

Thanks for your understanding and I hope you will plan on attending the Pleasanton, CA show October 14, 2017 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.  Click here for details
