Scenes from the 2013 Kincardine Home and Garden Show; this year's show is slated for this weekend at the Davidson Centre

The 2014 show features raffle items donated by local merchants and businesses; and children's colouring contests

The annual Kincardine Home and Garden Show is slated to run this weekend, April 26-27, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, at the Davidson Centre

Businesses are relying more and more on websites, E-mail lists, and technology. However, continued participation in community events, such as Home and Garden Shows, emphasize brand recognition in the public domain. People, in the end, want to connect to people not websites or E-mail lists. 

The organizers of the Home and Garden Show have noticed that contractors, builders, home decor, and financial advisors continue to have financial success when they attend year after year. 

Home and Garden Shows provide that personal touch that people miss when work needs to be done on their houses/cottages.

This year is no exception. Vendors are ready to supply updates on new products and services. They are looking forward to meeting you face-to-face.  

So don’t let your messages get lost in translation. Come and talk to our vendors and local businesses. Quality, performance, knowledge and service are part of what makes these businesses a success.  

The Kincardine Skating Club, a non-profit organization, wants to keep the Home and Garden a tradition.

This year, the Kincardine Home & Garden Show has an on-site and off-site RV Sale by Pierson Motors. Buy any trailer at the Kincardine Home & Garden Show, April 26-27, and receive a $500 gift certificate from Canadian Tire.

Come and see wood construction and craftsmanship by Topnotch Furniture, quality John Deere Lawn products by Huron Tractor, new products by Kincardine Tim-BR Mart and Goderich Rona, money-saving ideas from Edward Fuels and South Port Mechanical/Geothermal.

Enter our raffle. All proceeds support local children’s skating programs.  

Hey, kids, come and colour at the Kincardine Home and Garden Show. 

It’s springtime and everyone looks for our local Sparks, Brownies, Guides and Pathfinders with their traditional vanilla/chocolate cookies. Why not come and purchase a box? 

Mother’s Day is around the corner. Ask what Mary Kay Cosmetics, Jamberry Nails, 5th Avenue Collection Jewellery, Reliv by Florence Sauder, Mind Body and Soul Healing by Emily DeVargas, or Ashfield Cakes and Decorations can do for you.

They can make your special Mom smile on Mother’s Day with gift certificates and gift baskets .... maybe even a special dozen cupcakes instead of flowers?


This year, there are two children’s colouring contests. Come to the Dog Lovers Days booth and draw a picture of your favourite dog in the box, and colour or shade it in.  Submit it, to automatically receive one free children’s admission to the Dog Lovers Days, set for June 21-22 at Connaught Park, Kincardine.  

Grand prizes for best dog picture consist of: a $25 gift certificate to Lake Huron Video, a family pass to Dog Lovers Days, and the opportunity to meet the talented dogs that are performing at the event.

Grand prizes will be drawn Sunday, June 1, for the best picture category; one will be selected from each age group. All pictures will be displayed at Dog Lovers Days. One drawing permitted per child. Age categories: 4-12.

The second colouring contest is for “mystery” prizes at the Kincardine Home and Garden raffle table. Our local businesses have supplied a wonderful assortment of raffle prizes. 

Your admission of  $5, and the sale of raffle tickets, all go to children’s skating programs through the Kincardine Skating Club.

Come out and “spring” into action at the Kincardine Home and Garden Show!
