The Northern Colorado Home & Garden Show begins Friday noon at the Island Grove Regional Park Event Center with booths, demonstrations and displays from local vendors and organizations.
“Having not had an in-person show in 2021, we couldn’t be more excited to be back in our 39th year,” said Lindsay Haines, organizer of the event. “The Greeley Tribune’s Home & Garden Show is a tradition that strives to connect local businesses with the community for all of their home and garden projects.”
The show brings together landscapers, home remodeling, repair and maintenance companies, nonprofits and other businesses and organizations to engage and educate community members on a variety of projects and issues.
This year’s show will feature a few new entrants at the show: Aqua Spas, Silverline Structures, Superior Sleep Experience and Bear Naked Hot Tubs.
Aqua Spas and Bear Naked Hot Tubs showcase some of the latest hot tub designs, gazebos and more.
If you’re looking to add steel structure to your property, Silverline Structures is definitely a vendor to look at. The company designs and installs a variety of steel structures for every need.
Superior Sleep Experience offers the opportunity to test the latest technology in mattress and sleep products.
Other vendors scheduled to appear at the show include:
- J&T feeds
- course of the sun
- Welding Community Credit Union
- Warm hugs
- Redesign it
- Boyo Designs
- house of faux
- Fort Collins Miracle Method
- Toad-ally fresh air
- wildly built
- 5280 window slot covers
- Mile-high chimes
McDonald Toyota will return to the show this year with some of its new vehicles. The cars and trucks are on display in a fun exhibition on the patio, so be sure to stop by and smell the new cars.
McCreery & Sun of Colorado is the official bag sponsor of the show. The company has provided grab bags to visitors to the show for the past three years. Attendees are encouraged to bring a bag upon arrival so they can collect treats, business cards, and prizes throughout the show.
Of course, no show is complete without good food, and this year’s show features a bit of munching at The Slawpy Barn food truck, Gourmet Grub Food Truck, concession stand and Crumbl Cookies. The Human Bean Coffee Truck is said to be on site Sunday selling a selection of coffees, lattes and hot chocolate.
“The Greeley Tribune is also running a sweepstakes for contestants,” Haines said. “Visitors attending the show just need to find QR codes that are on our posters around the event center. From there, they can enter our Home Sweet Home Sweepstakes for a chance to win a $500 Visa Gift Card.”
The show is open to all ages and ABC Child Development Centers is sponsoring a Kids Zone this year. The Kids Zone is located on the southwest side of the event center.
“Kids can paint their own clay pot to take home, enter our painting contest, and just hang out while their parents take a little break during the show,” said Haines.
From now until the show, parents can find the coloring page in the Greeley Tribune newsprint or on the show’s website. Children can color the page, fill out the required information and bring their coloring sheet to the event to win four tickets to the Colorado Eagles hockey game on Saturday, April 9th at the Budweiser Event Center in Loveland.
And while the organizers are looking forward to being back in 2022, next year the fair will celebrate its 40th anniversary. Haines and his crew are working to add more new features to the show in 2023, and community members can keep an eye out for upcoming announcements at www.nocohomeandgardenshow.com.
