The Northern Colorado Home & Garden Show will kick off at noon Friday at Island Grove Regional Park Event Center with booths, demonstrations and displays from local vendors and organizations.

“After not having an in-person show in 2021, we couldn’t be more excited to be back for our 39th year,” said Lindsay Haines, event organizer. “Greeley Tribune’s Home & Garden Show is a tradition, striving to bring local businesses together with the community for all of their Home & Garden projects.”

The show brings together landscapers, home remodel, repair and maintenance companies, nonprofits and other businesses and organizations to engage and educated community members on a variety of projects and topics.

This year’s show will feature some new vendors on the floor: Aqua Spas, Silverline Structures, Superior Sleep Experience and Bear Naked Hot Tubs.

Aqua Spas and Bear Naked Hot Tubs will showcase some of the newest hot tub designs, gazebos and more.

If you are looking to add a steel structure to your property, Silverline Structures is definitely a vendor you’ll want to check out. The company designs and installs a variety of steel structures for every need.

Superior Sleep Experience will offer the chance to check out the latest technology in mattress and sleep products.

Other vendors slated to appear at the show include:

  • J&T Feeds
  • Sunrun
  • Weld Community Credit Union
  • Warm Hugs
  • Remodel It
  • Allo Fiber
  • Boyo Designs
  • House of Faux
  • Miracle Method of Fort Collins
  • Toad-ally Fresh Air
  • Wildt Built
  • 5280 Window Well Covers
  • Mile High Chimes

McDonald Toyota will return to the show this year with some of its new vehicles. The cars and trucks will be exhibited in a fun patio display, so be sure to stop by and take in that new car smell.

McCreery & Sun of Colorado is the show’s official bag sponsor. The company has provided grab bags to attendees at the show for the past three years. Attendees are encouraged to pick up a bag on arrival, so they can collect goodies, business cards and prizes throughout the show.

Of course, no show is complete without some good eats, and this year’s show offers a little gnash at The Slawpy Barn food truck, Gourmet Grub food truck, a concession stand and Crumbl Cookies. The Human Bean Coffee truck is scheduled to be on-site on Sunday, selling a variety of coffees, lattes and hot chocolate.

“The Greeley Tribune is holding a sweepstakes contest for attendees as well,” Haines said. “Attendees who visit the show just need to find QR codes located on our posters around the event center. From there, they can enter to win our ‘Home Sweet Home’ Sweepstakes for a chance to win a $500 Visa gift card.”

The show is open to all ages, and ABC Child Development Centers is sponsoring a Kids Zone this year. The Kids Zone will be located on the southwest side of the event center.

“Kids can paint their own clay pot and take them home, enter into our coloring contest and just hang out to give parents a little bit of a break during the show,” Haines said.

From now until the show, parents can find the coloring page in the Greeley Tribune newsprint or on the show’s website. Kids can color the page, fill out the required information and bring their coloring sheet to the event for a chance to win four tickets to the Colorado Eagles hockey game on Saturday, April 9 at the Budweiser Event Center in Loveland.

And while event organizers are excited to be back for 2022, next year will mark the show’s 40th anniversary. Haines and crew are working to bring more new features to the 2023 show, and community members can keep an eye out for upcoming announcements at www.nocohomeandgardenshow.com.
