TFG Events & Workshops

TFG Conference 2022

This fall, the Timber Framers Guild returns to Vermont for the first time since 2013. Our long weekend in Burlington is jam-packed with seminars and activities unique to the timber framing community.

Speakers include designers, engineers, historians, and other industry luminaries. Jack Sobon, Ben Brungraber, Curtis Milton, Patrick Moore, and other popular experts in their fields will be presenting over the course of the conference, which runs Friday through Sunday, October 14-16, 2022.  (click here for the schedule)

Make sure to join us for one of the pre-conference sessions - whether you attend the Timber Frame Engineering Council Symposium or another event on October 13, you're guaranteed to partake of an experience that will further inspire and engage you as the conference gets underway. 

As always, we are happy to include perennial favorites, including the trade show (and trade show mixer), member slide show, auction, bent busting, axe throwing, and more.  Full conference registration (Friday-Sunday) is $625 for members and includes all conference presentations, tradeshow, and meals (Friday breakfast - Sunday Breakfast).

New England is a popular fall destination as the leaves turn color and put on a show, so book your room now. Our block of rooms at the conference venue have been filled! We have secured additional room blocks at nearby hotels, and recommend booking as soon as possible!
