The Guild participates in several local shows. Volunteers are needed for each show and provides an opportunity to know other members and talk with the local community about the woodworking and the Guild. Some shows enable members to sell their products.

Gathering of the Guilds
Gathering of the Guilds is a huge show with 6 different Guilds and nearly 350 artists who make custom, one-of-a-kind products. We have 60,000 sq. ft. at the Oregon Convention Center. Over the last 4 years, attendance has increased from 10,000 to 18,000 mostly due to a large advertising budget and word-of-mouth. It is run by an LLC with one representative from each of the 6 Guilds and one lead person.
The 2020 Show has been moved to Oct 30 - Nov 1, 2020 due to the Pandeminc.
