Eastern States Hedgehog Show - June 28-30, 2013
I don't think I've seen this mentioned on here yet:

Eastern States Hedgehog Show
June 28 - 30 , 2013

Holiday Inn Express
La Plata, MD (45 minutes from Washington DC)


The Eastern States Hedgehog Show is an annual human and hedgehog convention attended by hedgehog owners from all walks of life and from all over the U.S. as well as Canada.

It is a weekend for the hedgehog community and their pets to play and shop together, listen to educational speakers and partake in an IHA sanctioned conformation show.

I was considering going to this, but I'm not sure yet. Anyone have any experience with these kinds of shows?

I have not been to one of the Eastern State's Shows, but I have been to many others. I do know the people who are hosting it, and have met them at other hedgehog shows. From what they have on the agenda this will be a fun show.

Both big and small shows are always a lot of fun. You will be surrounded by other hedgehog people from across the country, who won't look at you funny if all you do is talk about hedgehogs. Something that isn't easy to do anywhere else.

This particular show is a 3 day event, it has fun events, 2 confirmation events and educational speakers. Shows are a great way to learn. With all the years I have been in this community and have had hedgehogs, I still learn something new each and every time I attend a show. Sometimes its just seeing a new product someone is using, sometimes its a new handling trick, etc. Another fun thing is these shows have vendors and you can pick up some cool hedgehog related items from them.

If you were to attend only one day of it, I would recommend Saturday (as do the hosts). Don't hesitate to go and sign up for the events.

If you have more questions about what shows, in general, are like or about participating, ask.

Yeah, I'm trying to convince my mother to take a 3 hour trip so I can maybe go on Saturday. I told her it would be like a trip to Wilmington, NC (it takes that long to get there) but without the beach! She was arguing that the last trip she took with me was to the reptile show in Raleigh, NC and she ended up sitting next to 2 loose snakes! Some guy sat down next to her in the food court with snakes wrapped around his arms. She is not a snake lover!!! Actually, she isn't a lover of anything but dogs.

I just want someone to drive with ~ I may bribe her with some kindle books.

I have fallen in love with hedgies in such a short time and my boyfriend and I spoil our little guy and talk about him constantly. I sooo wish I was able to go to this. Surround myself with other hedgie nerds? Haha yes please! Too bad we live across the country. I wish I could somehow combine it with a trip to see family back East but it's not looking possible...and I wouldn't get to bring hedgie with me :( :( :(

Maybe another year. I would LOVE to hear how it was if anyone goes!
