Green Thumbs & Better Homes
Home & Garden Show will stoke your fix-it-up dreams
If it’s time to spruce up your yard, plant the seeds, and start a home project, then the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association is here to help. Back for its 42nd year, the annual Home & Garden Show features more than 125 vendors to help you get inspiration for your next project. The event features a scavenger hunt with a $250 grand prize of a Dream Backyard Grand Giveaway from Green Oasis. There are daily events, such as a Senior Day on Friday, which features educational sessions on how to make your home safer as your age, housing options in your next phase of life, and getting your home ready to sell for the current market. Friday also features live music by Adrian Klenz from 5-8pm with beer and wine for purchase. Saturday features demonstrations on spring landscaping, luxury vinyl tile installation, and spring and fall home maintenance. Sunday includes family events such as bird house building/decorating, string art, face painting, balloons, and more. The Home & Garden show is the year’s biggest event to learn how to make your home even homier.
