Come listen to speakers throughout the day and spend time browsing our exhibit hall featuring our Homeschool Help Booth, CHEA Store, and dozens of homeschool vendors and resource providers.

Though it won’t be quite the same as being together at Convention, we can’t wait to see everyone!

Due to Covid capacity restrictions, children (other than nursing infants) are not allowed. We ask that attendees follow local and state health ordinances.

(10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)

We know everyone is eager to touch and physically flip through curriculum. Our vendors are equally eager to provide the opportunity for you do so and purchase curriculum to take home with you that day.

The Exhibit Hall will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. with the option to register for the morning session (10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) or afternoon session (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.). Please note that the Exhibit Hall will be closing and the floor will be cleared promptly at 4:00 p.m.

A list of scheduled Exhibit Hall Vendors is coming soon.

(9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.)

Covering a variety of topics, we have a line-up of workshops throughout the day that we know homeschool parents will find informative, encouraging, and uplifting.

During registration, please register for the workshops you wish to attend. Space is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. A waiting list and standby line will be available, but there are no guarantees that we will be able to accommodate either, so we strongly recommend you register early.
