March 20, 21 & 22, 2020 - 32nd Annual Sonoma County Home & Garden Show

At our show you are in charge. You get to choose which exhibitors to “interview” and then compare their business offerings face-to-face on your terms. We take away the “fear” of the hardsell stranger invading your home after that 1-800 appointment you made, or that list recommendation web site you clicked on. You will be able to evaluate your potential source on your terms. If the “fit” is not there, you move on to find just the right professional somewhere else at the show. Thousands of attendees have even made our Home Shows an annual experience. They get to know many of our hundreds of exhibitors and even become casual friends with some. Then when ready to proceed on a project, they have greater confidence, which can ultimately save time and money.By California State Law, all of our exhibitors, requiring licenses, are checked for good standing with the state licensing board. This gives you another measure of confidence.
