FULTON, N.Y. – Booths and exhibits from building suppliers, home repair specialists, and financial institutions will fill the Fulton War Memorial for the tenth time when the Fulton Area Home Show returns on Saturday, April 7, 2018.
A true sign of spring, the free home show is an opportunity for local homeowners and potential homebuyers to get a glimpse of the many services available for buying, selling, renovating, and sprucing up a home.
The show runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. featuring a variety of different vendors from financial institutions offering help on mortgages to contractors and suppliers offering ideas on improvements.
The highly successful event is being sponsored by Burke’s Home Center, and Fulton Savings Bank again pledging community sponsorship has proven to be a successful combination from the beginning. The show hosted at the War Memorial is presented by the City of Fulton and the Fulton Community Development Agency.
In addition to the more than 40 exhibits, the home show will emphasize “Exterior Beautification” again this year, said Joe Fiumara, Executive Director of the Fulton Community Development Agency.
“This year’s show will feature more vendors from the Landscaping and Exterior Trades as we did two years ago. We are also featuring a special viewing of the local initiatives taking place in and around Fulton. We want to spotlight these local initiatives that include Fulton Block Builders, Fulton Footpaths, Friends of Fulton Parks and the Lake Neatahwanta Revitalization Project. Members of these initiatives will be on hand to answer questions and talk about goals and strategies for the Greater Fulton Area,” he said.
Fiumara explained that the idea of the home show was in response to many comments from the community that homeowners didn’t know where to go for certain information, were not aware of certain services in the community, or were looking for a place where they could ask questions without being under any obligation to buy something or sign up for something.
“Regardless of income, people are looking for certain things and were not sure where to get them,” Fiumara said. “The Home Show will be an ideal place for people looking to buy a home, as well as people who own a home and are looking to make some improvements.”
The show will feature more than 40 local exhibitors, as well as on-going demonstrations by local contractors, building supply companies, and landscapers.
Exhibitor spaces for the home show are almost sold out, so we urge vendors to please get signed up as soon as possible, Fiumara noted.
“We have been pleased with the response by the business community so far,” he said. This is such a good opportunity for our community to see what’s available to them and to look forward to the spring and summer home improvement and landscaping months.”
