Home School Book Fair

The Homeschool Book Fair takes place each year on the 2nd weekend in May at the Arlington Convention Center.
This is the BIG one! There are so many great workshops, speakers, and of course, vendors with their merchandise on display. It's a great way to see your options firsthand, ask questions of the publishers, purchase curriculum at a discount, and see what's new!

We usually have a large number of families attending, so watch the RRCH Yahoo group around April/May for emails about who's going and who you can share rides with.

Tips to remember:

  • No strollers or wheeled carts are allowed, so keep this in mind when you're planning which children to bring!
  • Sack lunches are not allowed in the building. You will either need to eat out at your car, or purchase a lunch in the dining hall. Eating in the dining hall allows you to sit and listen to the Home School Choir perform. They are great!
  • There is a nursing mothers room provided.
  • If you make lots of purchases, they have a check room to hold your bags until the end of the day.
If money is tight, consider volunteering 2 hours of your time in exchange for admission. Even children10 and up are allowed to volunteer.

Register early for 1/2 price admission. See their website for current admission fees.

Workshops may be downloaded for $3 each here.

Get all the details HERE. (This website also gives you a complete list of curriculum vendors with links to their websites.)
