What’s billed as “Victoria’s largest building, renovation and decor show,” the 2015 Victoria Home Expo will be taking over the buildings and arenas of West Shore Parks and Recreation in Colwood this weekend.
Some of the features of this year’s event will be the furniture and mattresses to try before you buy, closet and personal organizers to help you control your clutter, cutlery and cookware to restock your kitchen and even food items to find cooking inspiration from.
Combine those with expert advice on hand from experts in everything from home decor, to kitchen and bathroom renovations, painting to flooring to window coverings, and visitors to the show are sure to find something they can use or ideas for projects to undertake in their own homes.
It’s also free admission this year to take in the almost 300 exhibits, booths and demonstrations.
After the turnout at the Victoria Early Spring Home Renovation and Decor Show – held Feb. 27 to March 1 in Saanich – which was free for the first time this year, organizers have decided to continue that trend and make the Home Expo a free event for visitors, as well.
Be sure to get your “show passport” to get stamped at vendors around the event to be entered to win a $1,000 gift card from Capital Iron.
The hours of the show are Friday from 1 to 9 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
