Just in time for the mid-winter blahs to start giving way to spring fever, the Saratoga Home & Lifestyle Show will return to the Saratoga Springs City Center on February 29 - March 1, 2020. Previously held over three days, the new two-day show will be full of local exhibitors who will help you find solutions to your entire list of upcoming home and lifestyle to-dos.

Who Will Be at the Show & What Will I Learn?
The Saratoga 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 Saratoga 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?
The Saratoga Springs Rotary Club has some exciting changes in store for the 2020 Saratoga Home & Lifestyle Show.
This year, Saturday will be a Family Fun Day featuring entertainers (magician, balloon artist, hula hoop artist) roaming throughout the show floor from 11:00am - 5:00pm and educational seminars from participating vendors. On Sunday, there will be a pet adoptions area and local pet agencies on hand to answer questions. In addition to a photo booth all weekend long, some of the other special event highlights will include:
Fine Art & Crafts Show Paired with a Wine Tasting
Back by popular demand, the Saratoga Home & Lifestyle Show's Art Show will be located inside Meeting Room 1 on the City Center's main floor 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. You'll also have a chance to taste wines and bring home some of the finest crafted flavors around.
Door Prize Drawings & Grand Prizes
During the weekend, there will be door prize drawings every 30 minutes (Prize Box A), prize drawings throughout the show with prizes donated from the vendors (Prize Box B), and grand prizes (Prize Box C).
Two grand prizes will be drawn on Sunday afternoon, and the winners will receive a Saratoga Prize Package full of gifts/entertainment/things to do in downtown Saratoga, donated by the Saratoga Springs Downtown Business Association Members.
Take a Leap of Kindness
Hundreds of people across Saratoga County and beyond will celebrate Leap of Kindness Day on Leap Day, February 29. The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce encourages everyone to participate by using this extra day of the year to do something kind for someone else. The Rotary Club of Saratoga Springs invites you to participate through the Saratoga Home & Lifestyle Show by making donations of items at the event.
- Saturday, February 29: On behalf of the Salvation Army, the Saratoga Home & Lifestyle Show will collect new socks and underwear for all ages and sizes. Bring your donations to the show and place them in the receptacle near the entry table.

Why Should I Attend or Exhibit at the Saratoga Home & Lifestyle Show?
If the 120 home and lifestyle exhibitors, large art and crafts show, and hourly door prizes aren't enough to entice you to join in the fun and learning at the Saratoga Home & Lifestyle Show on February 29 - March 1, then what about knowing it's all for a good cause?
The Saratoga 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.
