The Home and Garden Show promises to give you the cutting-edge on products for today’s new homes. Consumers — get connected with builders and subcontractors who have dedicated their lives to changing the world by changing the way they build.

Want earth friendly, energy efficiency and sustainability? If so, plan to attend the 10th annual Home and Garden Show, May 16-17 at the Archuleta County Fairgrounds and Western Heritage Center.

Visit nearly 75 booths with local and regional participants showcasing their building, landscaping, home improvement and lifestyle exhibits. Vendors include home builders and remodelers, window and door professionals, insulation and solar specialists, as well as several outdoor exhibits that will feature spas and patio decor, landscape designs and custom granite and stonework. Everything from carpet and flooring, paint and window treatments to building supplies and construction equipment will be on display throughout the venue. Representatives will be on hand to provide you with plenty of ideas, information and ways you can improve your surroundings.

Several Colorado artists will feature their beautiful creations, and live cooking demonstrations will take place throughout the show. In addition, representatives from some of the local utility companies will be there to help you find ways to save on energy costs and make your home more efficient. Free seminars will take place throughout the weekend and you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experts.

This year, our annual Builders Auction will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. This is an opportunity for you to purchase some gently-used equipment or building supplies at great prices. The whole family can have some fun at the nail driving contest.
