This one looks to have 1,000 tables. I believe the big Oaks Extravaganza is March 22-24 with 2,000 tables.

This is one of the few times when the Oaks show and the Chantilly show fall on the same weekend. My experience over the past decade taught me that many of the same vendors attend both shows, so they either pick one or the other, or split their offerings and personnel.

Me? I'm going to go to the Oaks' March Extravaganza show, which features 2,000 tables. It's their biggest show of the year.

I was looking for something in particular so I went to Chantilly (it's closer for me) and as expected, I saw fewer vendors because Oaks and Chantilly split some of the vendors between them, and some of the audience as well.

There seems to be little point to attending a show when there are other shows nearby.

Why would the three biggest shows in the area all schedule the same weekend?

That appears to be the question.

In a similar vein regarding the importance of scheduling and how it can be done, about 30 years ago, I recall that representatives of major environmental and general public interest advocacy organizations, like Greenpeace, Environmental Defense Fund, U.S. PIRG, Clean Water Action, and others, would meet quarterly.

They met in order to schedule all of their door-to-door fundraising campaigns to make sure one group wouldn't try to raise funds in a neighborhood too soon after another group had just gone through. If a resident gets hit up for cash three times in a month, they suffer "donor fatigue" and stop giving to the groups coming along too close behind. If the door knocks are well spaced out over the year, a donor is more likely to give to all groups as they come around.
