Find ideas and inspiration for your home, garden and outdoor space at the Port Alberni Spring 2018 Home Expo.

Big savings and big ideas await at Port Alberni’s spring home expo

Home and garden renovation season launches with annual expo, March 10 and 11

The spring renovation season begins in earnest this weekend when all manner of home and garden experts fill Port Alberni’s Glenwood Sports Centre.

Whether building or buying a new home, undertaking a major renovation or embarking on a room-by-room redesign, the Port Alberni Spring 2018 Home Expo provides the information and inspiration you need for your home, garden and outdoor space.

“If you’re building or renovating, this will be two hours well spent,” says Darcy Hope, show manager with hosts Evergreen Exhibitions. “You can see everyone under one roof and do your shopping without driving all over town or the Island.”

Save big – Save thousands on home improvements through show specials, available this weekend only. Better yet, everyone who attends can enter to win a $200 gift certificate for Boomerang’s Café!

Find home solutions, from top to bottom – From roof and windows to flooring and foundation, home solutions start here. Learn about new products, see in-booth demonstrations and take home tips and tricks for indoor repairs and outdoor maintenance.

Be inspired by the latest design trends – What are the go-to paint colours, flooring choices and decor trends? How can you create an outdoor living space you can’t wait to come home to? Ask the experts!

Find custom and cutting edge – Joining well-known brands and local experts – campers and outdoor cooks need to check out Port Alberni’s own Brown’s Outdoor Artillery! – are unique products exclusive to the home show. The Van Houtte coffee booth is always a highlight – people like to stock up on the K-cups they can’t find elsewhere, Hope says.

Be prepared – Keep your home and family safe with exhibitors ranging from Price’s Alarms and Safe & Sound Window Film to GetMyKit.ca, attending the Port Alberni expo for the first time. From personal kits to emergency preparedness kits with food, first aid and more, they’ll help you get ready for a potential emergency.

It’s free! – Not only is parking free at the Glenwood Sports Centre, but admission to the Port Alberni Spring Home Expo is also free! Visit Saturday, March 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Meet local experts to discuss your list of projects, and help you turn your house into your dream home. “It’s the only home expo of the year in Port Alberni, and It doesn’t matter what you’re looking for, chances are you’re going to find it,” Hope says.
