Strict guidelines are followed when selecting commercial exhibitors for the fair. Exhibitors must have products or services directly related to the home or garden to be included in the show. This is one of several things that sets us apart from other home and garden shows in the area, and we believe it’s a requirement that makes the fair more enjoyable to the more than 20,000 people who attend.
Each booth will have access to one 600 Watt/5AMP electrical outlet, eight-foot high back drape, three-foot high side drapes and a small sign with your company name for your booth. Additional booth furnishings and services are available at the exhibitor’s expense.
Admission to the Home & Garden Idea Fair is free, so exhibitors will not need show passes. However, there is a $6 per car daily parking fee for each entry to the parking lot.
If you have questions or need more information about the Home & Garden Idea Fair just leave a message at 360-992-3223 and an event staff person will get back to you as soon as possible.
