The Self-Reliance Expo schedule includes one in Hickory, North Carolina in September.
Tickets are only $10.
Here is a description from their website:
The Self Reliance Expo is a show that promotes the education of living a more self reliant lifestyle. This show currently being held in three different cities! We pride ourselves on being a family friendly event that teaches visitors different techniques that can help them become a self sufficient household.
Perhaps more than ever before, people are seeking ways to become more self reliant and create a more sustainable living area. It’s great for the environment, and it’s great for the pocketbook. This is the lifestyle that teaches great family values and protects your family during economic downturns. This is the only Expo where you can gain knowledge about every aspect of self reliant living! While Emergency Preparedness is a large part – there is much more. Being educated, informed, and prepared means you will live a more peaceful and fulfilled life, as well as being able to make the right decisions when the time comes.
