Default Craft Shows at Adventureland

Usually their web-site has an off-season calendar of events, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know when the Craft Shows will be held at Adventureland this fall?

Also, what happened to the one they used to hold at Hy-Vee Hall/IA Events Center?

I know the next Craft Show at the DSM Fairgrounds in the Varied Industries building is December 4-6.

Thanks!!

The one that was held at Hy-Vee Hall/Events Center used to be the held at Vet's every year on 2 floors, then it moved to Hy-Vee Hall for a year or two and was a pretty good show (had wine tasting and live entertainment) then not last year but the year before, they combined it with a car show and all I heard from people on/about this format were complaints and they haven't held it since then. It used to be one of the best ones to hit . . . . .

Thanks for the info on the Adventureland shows!

May I ask if you are a vendor or a shopper?

Generally, I am a shopper, but I know several vendors and have helped a few at shows in the past.

Thumbs up

Any craft shows coming up for early 2010?

I had a great experience last weekend at the Callahan show at the State Fairgrounds.

There is another craft show at Advenureland scheduled for the weekend of Dec. 19.

I am pretty sure there is one in February 2010 - but I have to check dates again.
