    I would think now. At most festivals people book for the following year when they check out or right after they get home. We do the bus trip for a day thing since we're only about 4-5 hours away. Makes for an awfully long day and I'd rather go for several days but that's too expensive for me.

    From MY experience......about 2 years!!................You MAY want to do some on-line exploring right away tho. We had to find a motel about 45 minutes away from the show.

    You'll want to start looking for hotels now...I go every year and found a good hotel a few years ago. I book at for the following year when I'm there....a lot of the area hotels are like that...they give preference to previous attendees. Good luck! I LOVE going to Paducah!!!

    Unless you are a vendor, or have a history of staying with a particular hotel, bookings are not taken until 12:00 AM on Jan 1,2011. Trust me, I found that out the hard way. Calling at exactly midnight is usually frustrating because everyone else is doing the same thing.

    I have family that lives about 20 miles from Paducah so I have already made reservations with them. I am determined to go to the show this year.

    BREAKING NEWS 2011 PADUCAH QUILT SHOW
    Show Continues Despite Flooding

    by Bonnie Browning, Executive Show Chair, 270-556-2133

    April 25, 2011, Paducah, Ky., - Due to high water along the lower Ohio River at Paducah, the floodgates that protect the city are being installed. To protect the safety of visitors to the American Quilter's Society annual Quilt Show & Contest, events usually held at the Paducah-McCracken County Expo and Julian C. Carroll Convention Center have been moved.

    Best of Show, category winners, and bed quilts will be on display at the Pavilion at the corner of 4th Street and Executive Boulevard. Vendors that were in the Expo Center will be there, too.

    At Kentucky Oaks Mall, 3470 James Sanders Boulevard, The Alliance for American Quilts display will be at Circuit City. The Pilgrim/Roy 2012 Challenge display and AQS Lancaster 2011 winners will be at Office Max, also at the mall. Vendors that were in the convention center will be located at Circuit City. Vendors that were in the Pavilion will be at Office Max.

    All classes and lectures and All Star Review will be held at First Baptist Church, 2890 Broadway, where the Wall Quilt contest and winners will be displayed.

    The Food Tent will relocate just two blocks to the Farmers Market located behind the museum at the T-intersection of 2nd Street and Monroe.

    As always, there will be Vendors on Kentucky at 200 Kentucky Avenue, also known as the Finkel Building, and the Hurt Book Sale.

    Events planned for Carson Four Rivers Center and The National Quilt Museum will continue in place. The Yo Yo ladies, Live Auction, and Silent Auction will be at The National Quilt Museum.

    Shuttles will run between all venues so visiting quilters may travel safely.

    A little water can't stop the 2011 AQS Quilt Show in Paducah. Come see us!
