Thousands are expected to attend the three-day event. Admission is free and attendees are invited to tour more than 150 booths and talk to experts about contracting, roofing, landscaping and more. The show also offers free giveaways, samples and tutorials.

“It’s a one-stop-shop” for all things home and gardening, said Darcy Hope, show manager and president of Island-based Evergreen Exhibitions which runs the show.

He emphasized that there is something for every home no matter the size and that renters and homeowners alike will find home renovation, decor and gardening items to explore.

“Come with a game plan for who you want to see,” Hope said.

There will be so much to look at that it will be easy to get distracted, he explained. Maps are available at the front entrance with the location of each booth clearly marked.

The Early Spring home show runs Friday, Feb. 28 from 1 to 9 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hope explained that while each day of the show is the same, attendees are encouraged to return another day to continue exploring as there’s a lot to take in.
