Visitor Tips


Make the most of this year’s Home Show!

When to Go?

Beat the crowds by planning your trip on a weekday after 3 p.m. If you are seeking detailed information, the smaller crowds on weekdays allow exhibitors to spend more time with you.

Lodging2Where to Stay?

“Working” an event can make for a tiring day. Start and end your exhibit day nearby. We can recommend comfortable, convenient homes-away-from-home¬†while you exhibit at the Show.

How Much Time?

Arrive at least two hours before closing time. Most browsers need a couple of hours to tour the exhibits. Because the Home Show gives you a chance to shop and compare in one place at one time, even the most focused visitor can lose track of time.

What to Bring?

If you’re seriously shopping for a contractor or ideas, be sure to bring paper and pen so you can take notes. Bring any relevant measurements, material names and photographs to assist you when talking shop. Because children may tire from walking, we encourage the use of strollers and backpacks.

What to Wear?

Dress appropriately for the weather. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes; there is a lot of ground to cover.

Can We Eat at the Show?

The Farm Show Complex operates several food concessions during the Show. Menu selection and pricing is at the discretion of the concession management and not the HBA.
