American Heritage Living History Show

There's a new indoor reenactor's trade fair starting near Chicago January 21/22 with a timeline theme ranging from early colonial America up to 1890. There are 58 vendors so far and it might be a good place for shopping for fabric or cross-over items. We'll be there peddling our period games. They don't seem to have a website so far, just a Facebook page.

Sounds great! So bad I found this event only now, I won't be able to make it :(
Is anyone of you going? Do you know if this is a yearly event?

It should be. It was a well organized event and all the other merchants I spoke to plan to return next year. The merchants were juried so mostly decent quality wares, minimal touristy crap. Seminars included Civil War field medicine, The effect of the the Civil War on Cotton industry, bare knuckle boxing, a photographer was taking tintypes and developing them there and gave a talk on astronomy of the time in addition to the usual talks on historic clothing.
