Victoria home show kicks off home reno season

Spring marks the beginning of the home renovation season in Victoria.

With cherry blossoms already hanging from trees and flowers blooming in local gardens, spring marks the beginning of the home renovation season in Victoria.

To help kick off the beginning of what is sure to be a busy season, Evergreen Exhibitions Ltd. is hosting the second annual Victoria Home Renovation and Decor Show this weekend.

The three-day event includes more than 100 exhibitors with in-booth demonstrations and information on a variety of home renovation topics such as landscaping, gardening and indoor decorating.

“Homeowners and if even if they’re not, even if they’re just renting, there’s always a need for renovations or things within the home, like decorating,” said Sarah Marwick, office manager and events coordinator for the Evergreen Exhibitions.

This year’s exhibitors include Victoria Painters & Company Ltd., Max Furniture, Capital Iron, Mr. Electric of Greater Victoria, Island Dream Kitchens, Four Seasons Sunrooms, Classic Cutlery and B.C. Hydro.

During last year’s inaugural event, more than 10,000 people showed up to one of the first free shows in Victoria and organizers are expecting to see just as many people this year.

“The idea is that you can make your way through the show and gather any information that you’re looking for and have your questions answered to make informed decisions pertaining to some of these large purchases,” Marwick said, adding it requires a lot of research and shopping around to complete major home renovations.

“It gives these people a chance to meet with business owners face-to-face and create a connection with them rather than just looking through a phone book and randomly picking someone.”

The Victoria Home Show takes place at the Pearkes Community Centre (3100 Tillicum Rd.) from Friday, Feb. 26 to Sunday, Feb. 28. Admission is free. For more information visit homesshowtime.com
