The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce WE ARE THE SOO Home and Renovation Expo returns to The Machine Shop this weekend and features displays and exhibits from local businesses showcasing the latest in home improvements and renovations.
“If you are planning any kind of home renovations, big or small, or you’re just interested things like energy efficiency, trends or accessories, this is a great opportunity to talk one-on-one with experts and have your questions answered all in one stop, says Rory Ring, CEO of the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce.
The Expo opens Friday, February 23rd from 11am to 8pm and Saturday, February 24th from 10am to 6pm. Admission is $5 for adults, children 16 and under are free with an adult.
Activities at the Expo include mini sessions with Paint Nite SSM on Friday and with Creative Nest Studio on Saturday. Participants can register in advance for these workshops at www.ssmcoc.com/2018HomeAndRenoExpo. Additional spots will be held for expo participants and filled on a first come, first served basis.
The Home and Renovation Expo is one of three exhibitions being hosted by the Chamber of Commerce under its WE ARE THE SOO banner. It builds on January’s Health and Wellness Expo and will be followed by the Big Sport and Outdoor Show in March.
Ring notes that the Home and Renovation Expo is part of a long tradition: “The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Chamber of Commerce started hosting its annual spring trade expos way back in 1976 with the Spring Sportsman Show at the Sault Armouries. In 2007, a home and reno component was added and the show moved to the John Rhodes for several years. We made The Machine Shop home for the events starting last year and split the event into three distinct Expos to give each market their own unique identity and provide guests with a more distinct experience.”
The event will serve as a depot for the PAC-A-Meal program which supports our local Soup Kitchen. Expo guests are welcome to bring a non-perishable canned good or food to help.
