  1. Where exactly is the Prepperfest being held? This website says the Northland Performing Arts Center. BUT the Gun Show Trader site says the Ohio Fairgrounds, Lausche bldg.

    • We are at the Northland Performing Arts Center on Morse Road. I will check Gun Trader to see if can correct that. Thanks for the heads-up

  2. Just got back from the Saturday event. Next year I plan to attend both days and more seminars. Great event, my only complaints are that the building was not well marked as the Northland Arts Center, so it was a little hard to find. Also you need a larger venue, it was so crowded I had a hard time seeing what the vendors were selling, etc. Thanks and I’ll see ya next year!

    • Lewis – glad you liked the event. We’ve doubled the number or vendors from last year and had more seminars as well. What other types of workshops would you like to see next time?

  3. Great Prepperfest. Great speakers and classes. Loved the Bob Gaskin presentation. His views and attitude about prepping were awesome. He gave me a whole new perspective on prepping and surviving a disaster. Don’t know if he wrote that down anywhere, but he should. Looking forward to his talk on Sunday.

  4. Admin, why haven’t you answered my question? If this event is not CCW friendly you could at least have enough class to admit it.

  5. James – Just saw your question. As we mention in the FAQ section, Ohio law prohibits us from allowing CCW as our event is classified as a gun show. All firearms brought on the premise must be empty and tied at the door. Several of us on the planning committee have our CCW license and are not happy about it but we will follow the law at our event. Thanks for your question.
