A few weeks ago, I told you why you should attend a homeschool convention in Greenville, SC. Today, I’ve got some reasons for attending on in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Next month, Great Homeschool Conventions will be at Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, April 24-26. If you’re teetering on the fence about whether or not you should go, I have some compelling reasons why you should.

You’re not in South Carolina.

The Great Homeschool Conventions event in South Carolina started today. Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re not there because, if you were there, you’d most like be listening to amazing speakers and shopping the massive vendor hall. But you’re not. You’re reading this.

If you’re in South Carolina at Great Homeschool Conventions and you’ve found time to read my blog…well, that just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside and makes you one of my favorite blog readers.

But if you’re not there and you want to make a Great Homeschool Conventions event, Cincinnati, Ohio is your next shot. So, think about it.

There is, apparently, really good chili in Cincinnati.

Now, I’ve never been to Cincinnati, so I don’t know this for a fact, but I hear that you can expect to find some amazing chili there. If I get there, I’m trying the chili and you should, too. I’m guessing that they probably have lousy tea, though, so I’ll take my own. Just in case.

If I go and I find Jimmie, I may just see if I can convince her to show me where the good chili is to be found.

You want to think of something besides WKRP when you think of Cincinnati.

Aw, come on. Tell me it isn’t just me. Venus Flytrap? Johnny Fever? Jennifer Marlowe? Those were good times – and if you have no clue what I’m talking about, you’re probably too young.

I might be there.

Okay, I guess this one is a little narcissistic, but I might be there. It’s not for sure yet, but I might be. I’d love to meet you, if I am!

If I’m not, some of the other bloggers you know may be. There are going to be blogger meet-ups at both Greenville and Cincinnati. Be watching the Great Homeschool Conventions Twitter and Facebook pages for more details.

And if all those reasons aren’t enough, how about more great speakers, and amazing vendor hall, and comedy night with Mark Lowry?

  1. I’ll be there! The exhibit hall is amazing. Even if you can’t go to any seminars, you should buy a day pass for the exhibit hall. It’s homeschool mom’s almost heaven.

    I live in Cincinnati and I can tell you, the chili is a dividing line. People either love it or hate it. (I, naturally, love it)

    If you make it up here, you should also try LaRosa’s pizza (their salad is great too) and make sure you save a few calories for Grater’s ice cream. Black Raspberry Chip is my recommendation, but really, it’s all good.

  2. I will be there! This is my very first homeschool convention…I’m excited and a bit nervous. If you do go to the convention I would love to meet you!

  3. They do have good, strong iced tea, but you will have trouble finding it sweetened unless you cross over into Kentucky! I’m a southern girl and I love some sweet tea too!
