It may be the dead of winter, but the Chamber is already thinking spring, and planning for Bedford County’s signature celebration of spring: the 24th annual Home, Garden and Lifestyle Show: Saturday and Sunday, April 6th and 7th at the Bedford County Fairgrounds.
A wonderful combination of tried-and-true standards and new features, the 2019 HGL Show will offer something for everyone.
Guests will be welcomed to the show by our partner, Homewood at Spring House Estates, the region’s premier retirement community. Admission is FREE and guests can register for a free daily door prize drawing.
And that’s just the beginning of the home improvement help to be found at the HGL Show. Whether you’re looking to create a new outdoor living space, update your kitchen or bathroom, furnish your man cave, or almost any other project, the area’s experts will be under one roof, waiting to meet you. Doing business locally means supporting neighborhood businesses, keeping important dollars in our own community. Personalized customer service is another benefit of choosing local goods and services in a county where a handshake is still an important business tool, and where families proudly put their name and reputation on every job they do.
Thanks to Entertainment sponsors, Matt Randall and Michael Meehan of State Farm, live music by Coltt Winter Leopley will provide the soundtrack for the weekend’s activities.
In addition to dozens of indoor exhibits, with an array of home improvement help, Jordan Hall will be bursting with outdoor displays as well, including the Stoneham Motorsports UTV Show, West Central Equipment John Deere Show, and Hines Equipment Cub Cadet Test Drive Experience.
The Children’s Corner and Friends of Shawnee Outdoor Experience will give young show-goers activities to enjoy, highlighted by the a family friendly EGGstravaganza, presented by Real Life Church
The Chamber is very proud to one again partner with the Bedford Speedway to give fans a preview of the 2019 race season. Sunday’s Stars and Their Cars Race Car Show will give the community a chance to meet and greet race car drivers and teams and get a look inside the cockpit of late model and sprint cars. As the show closes, the roar of race engines will fill the speedway, as drivers take to the track for their first practice of the pre-season (3pm.)
Food trucks will offer fair food from snacks and drinks to full meals throughout the weekend.
Show hours are Saturday 9am-5pm with an early-bird hour for Chamber members, hosted by EZtoUsecom, with free coffee and donuts for vendors and employees of Chamber member businesses. Public hours begin at 10am. Doors open Sunday at 11am; the show concludes at 3pm.
Indoor Exhibit Space is Limited. Outdoor space is still available. Call the Chamber for more information at 814.623.2233 or email.
