Last month, I attended a preparedness fair in Shelley, Idaho. Shelley is a very small town but they put on a great fair. The town works with churches and preparedness vendors to provide a wide variety of resources to all that attend. Community members will have booths sharing their emergency preparedness ideas. My favorite parts of the event include testing out vendors products, participating in classes, and sometimes even receiving free samples. This year, I got free plant food, purchased a Faraday Bag for $9, purchased an LED Solar Lamp/Lightbulb $30.
Prepper shows, tradeshows, emergency preparedness fairs, and festivals are a great way to find deals on supplies, innovative self-reliant ideas, and connect with other like minded individuals. A couple of times throughout the year I’ll do a Google search to see if there are any Prepper events in my state and then I check to see if there are any in areas I will be traveling too. After a Google search I’ll then check the list below to see if I’ve missed any.
