Festool Roadshow

The Festool Roadshow

Join the educational tour promoting the trades and inspiring a new generation of workers
  • Finding the next generation of tradespeople.

    The trades are in crisis in America. Employers can't find enough skilled workers for trades jobs. At the same time, young Americans are having a difficult time finding stable jobs that don’t require increasingly expensive higher-education degrees.

    Festool is hitting the road to help bridge this gap. We’re heading to trade schools and other educational institutions that are training the next generation of tradespeople.

    On the 2019 Festool Roadshow, we are partnering with This Old House, Keep Craft Alive, SawStop, Shaper Tools, the National Wood Flooring Association, and the Home Builders Institute to teach, inspire, and prepare young workers for their new careers in the trades.
