  • Show in Nashville?

    Hey guys,
    I just got my first pair of Cresties and I'm super excited about it! I have been reading about these reptile expo things and it sounds like something I want to be a part of . . . I live in Nashville, TN. Does anyone know of any shows in or around this area? Or, is anyone from around here that breeds or knows of a good breeder? I am not opposed to ordering offline, but it would be so much fun to get to shop around in person and talk to people that are just as obsessed with Cresteds as I am. So, anyone hear of anything around Nashville? Even mildly close would work for me . . . I could take a road trip.

    Good luck. I'm in Arkansas, about 2 hours west of Memphis..and the closest show that I know of is like 5 hours away. So, you might have one around you, as Nashville is a fairly sizable town. Try kingsnake.com as many upcoming shows are posted on the front page.

        shadowkorin: thanks for the tip! that is exactly what i was looking for . . . i might try to make it up to ky for the expo in shepherdsville. i don't know if that is a small one and not worth making the drive for, but i will probably go anyways.

        jmextotics: i love atlanta and would love to drive down there for a show! can you tell me more about it or give me a link to find out more info?

        thanks guys! you all are so helpful!

            I'm in Smyrna! TN has NO shows, had the last one a few years ago, but the laws here are so crazy and a lot of people there got into trouble.

                  Yes we were vending at that show. It could have been a good show but a few things went wrong...
                  1) The promotors of that show were con artists..They told people they had pre sold 3000 tickets before the show just to get vendors there.

                  2) The show was on July 4th weekend!!!

                  3)No advertising was done, no signs or anything telling people what was happening at the venue (was a old wal-mart building)

                  4) when confronted with the lies...they promotors ran, left the show at the half way point during that Sunday.

                  I know TN. has some tuff laws but a show could be done...something to ponder I would love to do a show there, I have a sister that lives in Kingston Springs.

                  Hope this clears somethings up for you..By all means come on down to Columbia..You will enjoy it especially since we have added a new sponsor to the tote bag program and they will be sending samples of thier gecko food to give out....

                    I'd love to have a reptile show. Being part of a herp society here, we have discussed trying one out.

                      There is a monthly reptile show in Shepherdsville, Kentucky which is just south of Louisville on 1-65 which should be roughly 2 hours away from you. Here is the link to their website and forum:

                        Dixie Reptile show in AL. Two breeders there have really nice cresteds and I sell there sometimes. It's maybe 3-4 hours from Nashville.

                              As said the Columbia and Atlanta ReptiCon shows are both good. Even though I was supposed to be selling, I picked up some nice cresteds at both shows!
