NY Homeschool Convention – August 5 – 7, 2021 - Cancelled

Dear Rochester, NY Homeschool Convention registrant,
In the formative years of our nation’s history, 1776 to be exact, Thomas Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” The context has changed but we are, once again, challenged by the twists and turns of the COVID crisis.
State and local restrictions and regulations have, unfortunately, left us with no choice but to cancel this year's Rochester, NY convention, and reschedule for 2022.
Looking ahead, we plan to have our annual homeschooling convention in Rochester for many years to come.
To that end, please note these new dates:
July 21 - 23, 2022
Joseph A Floreano Convention Center
Rochester, NY
Paid 2021 Rochester, NY registrants have a couple of options as we move forward:
  1. Transfer your registration to our 2022 convention in Rochester, or to any of our other conventions in 2021 or 2022.
  2. Request a registration refund. (Be sure to include your physical mailing address with this request, and we'll process these requests as quickly as we can. If you registered recently, we can simply refund your credit card. However, if too much time has elapsed, we'll have to mail you a physical check)
Important note: Registration for our 2022 Rochester Homeschooling Convention will go on-sale next week, and there will be a slight increase in registration costs. So, you may find it easiest to simply roll your registration over to the 2022 convention.
Once you have chosen one of the above options, please email us at [email protected] to let us know so that we may update our records accordingly.
When you email us, please be sure to include the following in your email:
  • Your name
  • Your physical address
  • Your email address
  • Your mobile number
The challenges of COVID-19 have been unprecedented. We're grateful for your patience and understanding as we've been working through these challenges. We're not going to get through them unscathed, but --- thankfully -- we're getting through them.
Moving forward...
There's no better community than the Homeschooling community. Thank you for your commitment to homeschooling. The goal of our conventions is to Equip and Encourage Homeschooling families, and we count it a great honor to serve you.

Equipping... Encouraging... and FUN! There's a reason that homeschooling families attend these regional conventions and travel from all over the United States and Canada to get to one (taking advantage of our Hotel Discounts, too). It's because a GHC convention truly is the Homeschooling Event of the Year! With top-quality home education Speakers that you simply won't find anywhere else... 100s of great Workshops where you'll learn practical ideas that you can implement right away... a huge Exhibit Hall with the very best in Homeschooling Resources and Curriculum... an optional Children's Conference... and a variety of outstanding Special Events. This is an event that you simply cannot afford to miss. You'll LOVE it!

Featured Speakers

There is nothing quite like attending a (GHC) Great Homeschool Convention.
So many awesome workshops to choose from; the speakers are simply the best; and shopping in the Exhibit Hall is an adventure where I always find new ideas and great convention deals. There’s fresh new info and material every year. You can’t go just one year! Don’t Miss It! You’ll be more equipped, encouraged and energized — both as a parent and as a Homeschooler.
