The Washington Homeschool Convention is the largest of its kind on the West Coast, with nearly 4,000 attendees. Throughout the years, well known speakers such as Susan Wise Bauer, John Taylor Gatto, Dr. Raymond Moore, Stephan Guffanti, Tom Hoyle and Jim Weiss have drawn hundreds to our workshops. We also offer seminars on the how-to’s of homeschooling, fun family activities for all ages, and unique opportunities for homeschool families to connect.
Read what some of our exhibitors have to say:
“We look forward to the WHO convention every year, around 20 years now! It is very organized and the volunteers are delightful.
It is one of the easiest conventions to attend as far as parking, getting purchased items to the car and attending classes.
All are in close proximity and easy to manage with the whole family. The exhibit hall has a great selection of vendors, with very little overlapping, saving you time!”
“This will be the sixth year that we’ve had a booth at the WHO Convention. Every year we look forward to seeing the staff who put this huge event together, and know they’re always there to help, no matter what. They see to it that there are young people to help with loading and unloading, that you have good neighbors next to your booth, that your boxes are where they should be, and your booth is in a good location. The WHO Convention is well organized, delivers the people, and has a good program for the two days as well.
The last thing I will mention is that the volunteers for this event are really special. They bring in fresh coffee, baked goodies, water, soda and snacks for the vendors. What a nice and special touch that I wish all homeschool groups would consider when having a convention. Thanks Kelly Comer (ShadeTree Productions), for doing all that you do, and so well!”
“This of all the conferences I do, is my favorite. The energy and love for adventure from the attendees is wonderful!”
“WHO is on our don’t-need-to-think-about-it-just-sign-up-to-vend-again list! Not only is it local, it is also the largest homeschool conference in the Pacific Northwest. WHO’s organization does a fantastic job making this a easy conference to be a part of. We are always glad we came.”
The Washington Homeschool Convention is one of the most affordable conventions in the Northwest. Many conferences charge attendees over $50 per day; some conferences are hundreds of dollars just to attend. We offer ample free parking for exhibitors & attendees, our exhibit hall provides 10×10 booths for our exhibitors, compared to many that are limited to 8×8, at an affordable price, and our early bird registration offers even better value to our exhibitors. We have special non profit rates for qualifying groups. It has been a priority of the Washington Homeschool Organization (WHO) to make this convention affordable for both exhibitor and attendee.
