More than 40 booths and exhibits from building suppliers, home repair specialists, and financial institutions will fill the Fulton War Memorial for the eighth consecutive year when the Fulton Area Home Show returns on Saturday, April 12.
A true sign of spring, the free home show is an opportunity for local homeowners and potential homebuyers to get a glimpse of the many services available for buying, selling, renovating, and sprucing up a home.
The show runs from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and features a variety of different vendors from financial institutions offering help on mortgages to contractor’s offering ideas on improvements.
The event is sponsored by Burkes Home Center and is presented by the City of Fulton and the Fulton Community Development Agency.
In addition to the more than 40 exhibits, the home show will again emphasize “curb appeal” this year, said Joe Fiumara, executive director of the Fulton Community Development Agency.
“This year’s show will feature more vendors from the landscaping and exterior trades as we did last year,” Fiumara said.
“We know from experience that what gives everyone the nice inviting sense from a perspective buyer to a neighbor visiting is ‘curb appeal,’” he said. “So we anticipate our vendors to be offering tips and efficient ideas to achieve this.”
Fiumara said the home show came about in response to many comments from the community that homeowners didn’t know where to go for certain information, were not aware of certain services in the community, or were looking for a place where they could ask questions without being under any obligation to buy or sign up for something.
“Regardless of income, people are looking for certain things and were not sure where to get them,” he said. “The Home Show will be an ideal place for people looking to buy a home, as well as people who own a home and are looking to make some improvements.”
The show also will feature ongoing demonstrations by local contractors, building supply companies, and landscapers.
Exhibitor spaces for the home show are sold out, but organizers are compiling a waiting list for next year, Fiumara said.
“We have been pleased with the response by the business community so far,” he said. “This is such a good opportunity for our community to see what’s available to them and to look forward to the spring and summer home improvement and landscaping months.”
