The 2017 OSTA convention will be held at the Holmes County Fairgrounds September 8 and 9, 2017 in scenic Holmes County, Ohio. This region is in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country and there will be plenty of offsite local tourist activities available. Lodging may be a slight issue as there are not many nearby hotels. So book your room early or bring a tent and camp out at the fairgrounds. Many vendors will be returning this year and some new vendors are showing interest in coming as well. It looks like the fur market may be improving slightly for this falls season and the convention is the perfect place to stock up on all of your trapping supplies Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner served daily on site.
