Sponsored by The Rotary Club of Saratoga Springs
Just in time for the mid-winter blahs to start giving way to spring fever, the Saratoga Springs Rotary Club Home & Lifestyle Show will return to the Saratoga Springs City Center on March 1-3, 2019.
Perfectly timed to get you excited for lifestyle and home improvement projects before spring really sets in - and while you still have a few weeks to make a plan of attack - the Saratoga Springs Rotary Club Home & Lifestyle Show is full of exhibitors who will help you find solutions to your entire list of upcoming home and lifestyle to-dos.
With free admission for all ages courtesy of the show's major sponsor, The Adirondack Trust Company, the Saratoga Springs Rotary Club Home & Lifestyle Show is an opportunity no one in the Capital Region can afford to miss!
Who Will Be at the Show & What Will I Learn?
The Saratoga Springs Rotary Club Home & Lifestyle Show features 120 exhibitors with expertise in everything from gardens and outdoor living to financial planning, household organization, decor and comfort, family recreation and pets, food and wellness, and more. With such a varied group, the Home & Lifestyle Show has something for everyone - not just homeowners.
The weekend will highlight the latest trends and technologies to improve your lifestyle both indoors and out. Whether you own a home or live the apartment/condo life, this show is an amazing opportunity to ask the experts for all the best design tips about maximizing small spaces or minimizing landscape upkeep.
Are There Any Special Events or Prizes I Should Know About?
Fine Art & Crafts Show
Back by popular demand, the Home and Lifestyle Art Show will again be taking over the top floor of the City Center for the entire weekend. After you've talked with designers and home improvement specialists, stop by booths filled with paintings, ceramics, woodworking, photography, jewelry, and mixed media. Top it off with a wine tasting, and bring home some of the finest crafted flavors around. Artwork from Saratoga Springs High School students will also be displayed at the show.
Rotary Mac 'n Cheese Bake-Off
The Rotary Mac 'n Cheese Bake-Off on Saturday will feature a variety of Saratoga's best restaurants, including Forno Bistro, Harvey's Restaurant & Bar, Longfellows, Bookmakers, Olde Bryan Inn, and Peabody's Sports Bar & Grill. Attendees can try free mac 'n cheese samples from 11:00am - 3:00pm and then vote for their favorite! The winner will be announced late Saturday afternoon.
Special Tool Demo and Q&A Session
On Sunday at noon, Allerdice ACE Building Supply and Northern Dean will host a Tool Demo to educate people about using a drill, impact driver, multi-tools, and more.
Northern Dean's owner, Rich Martin, and Allerdice ACE Building Supply's tool department manager, Kathy Desjardinas, will provide tips for common household tasks, including hanging a picture, installing a towel bar, and patching and repairing drywall. Visitors are encouraged to bring their questions to this special event, which will take place in the room adjacent to booths J12 and K12.
Hourly Door Prize Drawings and Activities
Throughout the event, Allerdice ACE Building Supply will sponsor hourly door prize drawings for attendees to enjoy. A special grand prize will be given out as well.
Not only that, but families can bring their kids to Balloon Gal Jenny and JoJo's Face Painting for fun activities on Sunday from 12:00pm - 3:00pm.
Why Should I Attend or Exhibit at the Home & Lifestyle Show?
If the 120 home and lifestyle exhibitors, large art and crafts show, mac 'n cheese bake-off, and hourly door prizes aren't enough to entice you to join in the fun and learning at the Saratoga Springs Rotary Club Home & Lifestyle Show on March 1-3, then what about knowing it's all for a good cause?
The Home & Lifestyle Show is the Rotary Club's biggest annual fundraiser, and proceeds are invested right back into the community. The Rotary Club of Saratoga Springs supports a diverse array of community organizations, including Salvation Army, Franklin Community Center, Saratoga Regional YMCA, Rebuilding Together, Shelters of Saratoga, Code Blue, and Saratoga Community Health Center.
In addition to the generous support of these organizations and their mission to better the lives of Saratoga residents and others worldwide, the Rotary Club sponsors local youth scholarships and humanitarian aid programs.
The Rotary Club expects to raise around $100,000 from the event, and they will have a booth on the main floor with information about their scholarship and charitable donation programs. They will accept voluntary cash and coin donations to benefit Franklin Community Center.
