Our 2018 convention will be held on March 9th & 10th at Bethany Baptist Church, Peoria, IL.

We are hosting a "New to Homeschooling" Night, Thursday, March 8th from 6:30-9:00 pm.  This is a free event for those considering home education, or brand new to it. There will be vendor chat/shopping time from 7:30-9:00 pm.  Our hope is that vendors who want to be open by then will be set up and ready.  APACHE will provide a free dinner for vendors on that Thursday evening.  

We are looking to bless attendees with sessions that strengthen and encourage them as parents and teachers and would like to provide a forum for you as an exhibitor to bless them with curriculum and supplies that meet their needs. 

   
Whole families are invited to come which allows parents to review potential curriculum choices with their children but will also make for a more "active" exhibit hall.    Children under 12 will be expect to be accompanied by an adult at all times.

if you would like to be a vendor, please e-mail apache.vendors@gmail.com to confirm availability.

Electricity and Wi-Fi are FREE
