The new season of woodworking showes is starting this month in Texas. The last couple of years these shows seem to have gone downhill. If someone goes to one of these shows in the coming months,fill us in on whether they are doing better.
I’ve been going for five years and I know last year did not seem to be up to par (Tampa Fl)

They have done more than gone down hill in Seattle, they abandoned the cause. They didn’t show up last April. Closest one is Portland, OR. I doubt if they will be doing very well as long as the majority of Americans continue to see their paychecks getting smaller after inflation and their expenses keeping up with inflation while they wonder if they will have a job next week.

I just checked, they are not comming to Minnesota this year. I was at the show for the last 3 years, less stuff every year. I liked the show, too bad its going down hill.

The best thing to do is support the show if you enjoy it, and hopefully others will follow your example.

Otherwise, drag the table saw into the yard and start your own trade show…
