Home, decor show at Saanich’s Pearkes turns 30 this weekend

The Victoria Home Renovation & Decor Show is free and runs all weekend

The Victoria Home Renovation & Decor Show turns 30 this weekend at Pearkes Recreation Centre.

The Victoria Home Renovation & Decor Show turns 30 this year, and to celebrate, host Evergreen Exhibitions is offering free admission to this weekend’s Early Spring show at Pearkes Rec Centre.

Featuring 160 exhibitors, the show opens Friday and continues right through the weekend, introducing homeowners to the latest trends and innovations in home decor, building and renovation, energy-efficient products, landscaping and more, says Evergreen’s Doug Hope.

“We’ve come to Victoria for 30 years so to thank people for their support, entry to the Early Spring Home Show will be free,” he says.

Evergreen’s first-ever spring show in Victoria, fans of the fall show can expect more of their favourite themes. “Kitchens and baths are always the No. 1 and No. 2 projects around the home,” Hope says.

“Kitchen and bath remodelling and new products, especially energy-efficient products, are what people are most interested in.

“There’s a wide variety of home improvement, renovation and home decor (booths). People can shop under one roof and compare the many different products and vendors.”

Those with recreation property or a large backyard in which to escape will also want to check out the 2015 version of the 3,000-year-old yurt that will be on-site, inspired by the traditional, portable Mongolian tent-like structure.

Evergreen is also welcoming the spring home show season with a give-away basket. Check it out at this weekend’s show, then simply “like” their Facebook page, and follow up by entering online. The contest closes May 11.

Visit the Home Renovation and Decor Show from 1 to 9 p.m. Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
