Welcome to The Prepared Homestead Expo

Our 2022 Event was Amazing!

2022 was our first ever Prepared Homestead Expo and saying it was a success would be an understatement. With a total estimate of 700 people over the two days we knew we would have to make this a regular occurrence. We are planning now next years event and hope to bring you an even bigger and better Expo. As soon as we have more details available we will share them with you.

About our Expo

The Prepared Homestead Expo is the result of, or maybe the beginning of, a dream we have had for years: Creating a place where like-minded prepared homesteaders can come to learn, get to know one another, sell and/or trade their goods, and most of all have some family fun! This event is for you, and with your help, we can make this a memorable and worthwhile event. Our goal is to make this Expo free to the public, however, in order to do so, we need your help. We need volunteers to help us run the event. We also require vendors, skills demonstrators, and speakers. If you can fulfill any of these needs, please contact me below. If you would like to make a donation to help us with our Expo, please use the link below.
