I'll have a booth there.

Here is a facebook post that I found from two other guys who are also hosting booths.

I've been several times, but it's been a few years. I'm headed over tomorrow from State College, it's a cool, laid back show with lots of good stuff whenver I've been. Since I always find something I have to have, I'm bringin' a few things along. Definitely lots of wheelin' and dealin' goin' on any time I've been.

I'd like to go someday, but it's three hours away. Too far for a day trip, especially if I have a gig that night.

headline performers, clinics? In years past it was a gathering of regular drummers out in the (penn's) woods..Not a star studded "city" glam event..Stars if there, would mingle within the crowd.
And another thing noise. Noise (where can't hear yourself think) never an issue (folks hammering away on sets) not a part of a Pa Show; may have changed this year;... Doubt it.
ps people used to take pictures of rows of tables with drum gear all on them..haven't seen any pictures (from the show) yet. It's a low key but with high gear content show. opposite of anything "hollywood" (lol) altho there's plenty of laughs and human interaction
