will be bigger and better than ever,
with its new location and date!!
Over the last couple of years we have been to able to grow the Expo with your help. But we have grown to big for the Petaluma Community Center. So we have moved to the
Wells Fargo Center for the Arts.
It's a little farther up North on Highway 101, but it's a bigger location with LOTS of parking, outdoor areas, easier access to all the clubs and vendors, and more!!
With a new June date we will have better weather, too.
A bigger location also means room for more clubs, vendors, models, R/C fun, and more. We will have almost two dozen other clubs and local organizations on hand. There will be 192 tables of fun for the whole family. Click here for a map of the event.
In attendance will be Sonoma County Vet-Connect, Sonoma County Fire Dept, Rincon Valley Fire Dept., Sonoma County AMR, REDCOM (Redwood Empire Dispatch Communications Authority), and the Santa Rosa Police Dept. There will be first responder vehicles on display, hands on demos, and more!
There is more to come!
Please check back often and spread the word.
We will also have a display room of models from Sci-Fi Airshow and various professional movie modelers.
We are very happy to announce the Astromech builders will be on hand also.
