The El Dorado County Home and Garden show, April 27- 29, will be held the fairgrounds on Placerville Drive in Placerville.
On Friday, two great forums are made available to show guests. Starting at 2 p.m. Bob Billingsley, columnist for the Mountain Democrat, will host, “You determine if your life is full of roses, or weeds.” At 4 p.m., join Terry Bollons, certified senior advisor, and Lawrence Solorio, elder law attorney, for “How to Plan, Provide, and Pay for Senior Care.”
Weather permitting, you can even watch the Lawn Mower Races, sponsored by Placerville Polaris and Lawn Mower Tools, on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 10 a.m.
We are once again offering guests of the home and garden show an opportunity to win $250. Upon admission, you will be offered an entry form with 30 blank spaces. Throughout the display booths, 30 special home show signs are scattered. Find each of the 30 signs and write down the name of the business and drop off your entry form at the home show office. A drawing will be held on Sunday at 4 p.m., and you need not be present to win.
The Elks, serving up their signature tacos, will also be pouring cold brews. The Union Mine Music Boosters will be back with burgers, fries and breakfast sandwiches, while J-Dogs will be serving up the best hot dogs you will ever put in your mouth. Finish it off with a frozen treat from Rich’s Ice Cream, or something unique from Annie’s Bananies, and you’re sure to feel full and satisfied. And in case you have room, stop off for some original Kettle Korn!
So come out to the 32nd annual home and garden show and join the growing trend of people who have found the value in home improvement projects. We are confident you will find the products and services you need at this years event! Come to the home show, talk to the experts, and get your questions answered.
Home and Garden Show hours are Friday, noon-7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission will be free on Friday and there will be a $3 admission fee on Saturday and Sunday. As always, kids 18 and under are free. There will be a $5 charge for parking. We look forward to seeing you.
