The event will be held rain or shine on March 28 and 29 at the Smoky Mountain Event Center (formerly named Haywood Fairgrounds) in Waynesville, NC.  Employer's setup is March 27th, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM and is encouraged.

High school students will attend on March 28 and 29 from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM.  

Community College, University, Job Corps, and the general public will attend on the afternoon of March 28.
