1. Plan on attending for more than one day. There is simply too much to see and learn about. If you only go for one day, you’ll always be wondering about what you might have missed.

2. Read the program. Each morning, take the fair program out and circle the workshops that you are interested in attending. Also, check out the map to find out where those workshops will be located. Good preparation can increase your chances of getting a seat.

3. Bring a water bottle. You’ll be thirsty and although there are boxes to place garbage that can be recycled, be proactive (and environmentally savvy) by bringing your own water bottle that you can refill.

4. Bring a tote bag or backpack. If you have your own bag, you don’t need to take one from each vendor.

5. Bring money. It will only be the very strongest who won’t come home with soaps, fermented foods, and wooden spoons. You certainly don’t have to spend money but this is one place where your money is well spent.

6. The FAIR will be indoors as well as outdoors, bring sunglasses. If you burn, also consider a hat and some sunscreen.

Please let us know how RV parking is handled. Would love to give Mother Earth the camping bucks if there were overnight parking for self contained units rather than having to move it around back and forth all weekend.

We returned from the MEN Fair in Pennsylvania last Sunday. This our third in a row. It is hard to believe these get better and better, but they do. Every minute spent there, every step taken was worth it. Thank you, Brian Welsh, and all your staff who made this possible.
