Below is a list of shows for 2011. I am sure it is not complete but I will edit the original post and add shows as information becomes available. I did include a lot of Gun & Knife Shows in my area (KY, TN, OH, IN) as I am seeing more knifemakers, knife dealers and knife buyers coming back to these shows. I included the cost for a table wherever I had that information.

Note: Listings in BOLD are knife shows. All others are Gun & Knife Shows.

NOTE: RK Gun and Knife Shows operates in several states including Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Tennessee. There are far too many show to list here and I do not know if knives are a prominent part of the shows in some states. I listed the RK shows in my area (KY, TN, OH, IN) because I know that there are always several knifemakers and dealers at those shows. See RK's website for a complete list of their shows and schedules http://www.rkshows.com/calendars.htm

Thanks Mike. Hopefully be able to make a few shows this year. Can anybody give me a feel for the gateway show in St Louis. Its a reasonable drive for me.

Plenty of shows in Nashville, but none in Memphis... :( Maybe I'll just have to make the drive up there sometime this year.

Thanks. I always found it frustrating trying to find a comprehensive list so I try to create one each year. I know there are a lot more smaller club shows that I don't have listed and some of the bigger shows have not yet set their dates for 2011. Maybe the mods can make this a sticky for reference.

D.Douglas, I have not been to the Gateway show in St Louis but I have been told that it is a good show.

BRad704, I would be surprised if there aren't some shows around Memphis. See if there are any local cutlery clubs or a regional gun show promoter. There are shows around Little Rock each year.

According to the Badger Knife Club site, tables for the 2011 show are sold out. Dang shame, it's only a couple hours from me.

I can't find any info at all on table fees at Blade, or even a contact number/email. Perhaps I'm overlooking something.

No problem. I always compile a list at the first of the year to see what shows I might be interested in doing so I just thought I would share it.
