‘Build a Better Community’ at the Home and Garden Show

The Builder’s Association of Pagosa Springs is proud to present its most prestigious home and garden show — a two-day spectacular event — at which you can find inspiration from the latest ideas and trends in landscaping, gardening and home improvement, to plans to build your dream home.

More than two acres of the Archuleta Fairgrounds/Western Heritage Center will be blossoming during the 10th annual Home and Garden Show set for May 16-17.

Some 65 companies from our local area and communities of Colorado and New Mexico will be represented, and more than 94 booths have been reserved, most related to building, gardening and home improvements.

The theme of this year’s show is “Building a Better Community” and many exhibitors will be displaying their products for energy efficiency, ecologically-friendly and “green” building.

Seminars, demonstrations and how-to clinics also are planned, and numerous products new to the marketplace will be showcased. Nail driving contests for men, women and children will be held throughout the show. Food and beverage vendors will be on site to satisfy your hunger and quench your thirst.

Admission to the show is $2 for anyone over 18 and includes a chance to win a 32-inch flat screen HDTV with a Nintendo Wii and sports package, at the drawing held Sunday at 4 p.m. Children are admitted free.

The hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, May 16, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, May 17.

This year, our annual Builders Auction will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. This is an opportunity to purchase some gently-used equipment or building supplies at great prices and the proceeds go to support the Builder’s Association of Pagosa Springs, a 501(c) 6, nonprofit.

You’ll meet contractors, homebuilders, landscapers and decorators, as well as see the latest products and trends in action. The whole family will enjoy the landscaping and garden displays as well as the hot tub and spa displays. Artisans and designers will present exciting new works.

Looking to remodel? You’ll find lots of home furnishing and decorating ideas, featuring all of the current design trends for your home. You will also want to check out the gourmet cooking shows and ideas for outdoor living and entertainment.

Don’t miss this opportunity. Attend the show and help Pagosa Springs “Build a Better Community.”
