The Home Builders Association of Northwest Indiana and vendors from all around the Northwest Indiana area are teaming up for the 37th annual Home and Lifestyle show at the Porter County Expo Center, March 13-15.
The outstanding variety of vendors this year will transform the floor of the Expo Center into a one-stop hotbed of ideas and creativity for anyone looking to make improvements to their home and lawn this Spring.
“It’s a great opportunity to find new ideas,” Home Builders Association of NWI Executive Officer, Vicky Gadd said. “It’s a chance to see everybody under one roof.”
For attendees, the show will be a perfect opportunity to not only find what they are looking for, but also give them a unique chance to bounce their ideas off experts and learn about interesting new products and techniques that could help them.
“The show is a learning experience as well,” Gadd added. “A chance to talk to an expert one-on-one.”
And the vendors are just as excited about meeting and mingling with the attendees.
“We have been involved with the Porter County Home and Garden Show for many years,” Von Tobel Lumber and Hardware Manager, Tim Ault said. “It is a good opportunity to be out saying hello to our customers right as the spring weather is breaking, and to be able to show them a few of the many new items we have available for them. This year we will showing several of our best selling Weber grills, our high-end (but well-priced) resin wicker furniture sets, resort umbrellas, and decking options.”
In addition to the new products and one-on-one expert advice you won’t be able to find anywhere else under one roof, the Home and Lifestyle Show will also be adding a new food vendor to the show’s menu: Rudy’s Apple Mountain BBQ.
But fans of the show’s delicious Gelato treat need not worry, the creamy confection will still be available this year too.
Also back by popular demand will be the hugely successful children’s LEGO home building contest that gives two age groups, 5-8 and 9-12, the opportunity to use their imaginations to design and build a house of their own and maybe win one of the cool prizes given out for first, second and third place in the process.
The LEGO contest will be held on March 14, and registration forms are now available on homeandlifestyleshows.com.
The three-day event will take place on Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14, from 9:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. and Sunday, March 15, from 10:00 A.M. until 4:00 P.M.
