There are lots of new things to see and do at the Kincardine Home and Garden Show, presented in association with 95.5-99.7 myFM.

The sold-out event is slated for Mother's Day weekend, May 7-8, at the Davidson Centre, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with more than 60 exhibitors. It is set to be this spring's premier marketplace for ideas and products, many for sale at special show prices.

“We have incorporated some fresh ideas to help our exhibitors show off their wares and offer show-goers an even better experience,” says Susan Brissette, chairperson of the show's organizing committee. "We’ve had a wonderful response from sponsors and exhibitors to the changes we are making to the show, including a new website and a dedicated Facebook page” 

Aside from a bigger emphasis on products for sale at the show, sponsor My Wraps of Kincardine will be offering healthy food options for sale, there will be presentations every hour on a main stage in the arena on a wide variety of topics, 95.5-99.7 myFM will be broadcasting live from the show, and there will be surprises in store for Mom. 

“I have been impressed by the creativity of our new and returning exhibitors and overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our sponsors to make this a great event”, says Brissette.

Platinum sponsor HDTV and Electronics of Walkerton is planning on a huge clearance sale of TVs and electronic goods. 

Gold sponsor Folmer Landscaping, whose gardens off Highway 9 were recently featured in "Canadian Gardening" magazine, will be setting up a garden
marketplace with plants and outdoor room furnishings and accessories for sale. 

Silver sponsor J’Adorn, located in downtown Kincardine, will transform its space with chandeliers and beautiful objects, and offer unique and affordable cards and gifts perfect for Mom on her special day.

Admission to the show is $7 for one day or $10 for the weekend for adults, $5 for seniors and students. Children aged 14 and under get in for free when accompanied by an adult, and on Sunday, all mothers get in for $5 each. 



Overflow parking will be available in the Sobeys parking lot off Highway 21 and at Huron Heights Public School on Russell Street, with complimentary buses running continuously to the show. 

The event is a fund-raiser for the Kincardine Skating Club, and a portion of the proceeds is already earmarked for the Davidson Centre revitalization project, with the remainder supporting high-quality coaching and access to Kincardine ice for the benefit of all citizens improving their skating skills.
