The 2016 show will be “packed to the rafters” with exhibitors this year with many first time exhibitors attending. We have many meerschaum exhibitors attending, with two of them bringing in pipe carvers from Turkey who will be carving new pipes from raw block to a finished pipe!! This should be very interesting to watch as the work progresses.
At the “pre-show” on Friday, with so many exhibitors attending, if the weather is decent outside of the tent we will be setting up tables there also. We expect this year’s pre-show to be almost as big as the show itself, so if you can, BE THERE for this event!!

Tsuge Pipes will display a collection of historic pipes in honor of the 80th anniversary of the founding of the company. This will include pipes dating from 1936 to present.
