We have introduced advanced ticketing on our website this year and hope this makes the experience that much easier to enjoy. As a reminder, there are no other fees for any of the items listed below which include professional lectures on numerous aspects of woodworking, viewing fine woodworking exhibits, and viewing the vendor booths. Children can share the wonderful experience of actually making wooden toys children can take home and then be reminded of the honorable and creative field of woodworking.
This premier woodworking event each year is a two-day show held at the City Center in Saratoga Springs. It provides an opportunity for amateur and professional woodworkers to exhibit their work and to learn from their peers. More than 500 items are exhibited, from all aspects of woodworking. These include small and intricate items, carvings, turnings, through large pieces of furniture and sculptor. While this is not a juried exhibition, makers can elect to have their work judged by a panel of nationally known woodworkers.

Many of the 5000 to 6000 people who attend the show each year come for these lectures which are all part of the $15 entrance fee. The schedule of the classes will be available soon.
