The Stratford Home and Leisure Show is returning to the Stratford Rotary Complex in its 40th year April 13-14.

There is still space open for exhibitors, however spaces are filling up quickly. 

The show features diverse home-renovation exhibitors and vendors showcasing their products and designs. Perth Huron Builders Association executive officer Melissa Schenk says anyone looking to work on their homes this year should first stop in to see what local businesses have to offer, but the home show is also a community event, with something for everyone including booths by local businesses, food and fun. 

“We’ve got anything and everything this year, including food booths like Simple Dreams ice cream, Girl Guides and The Best Little Pork Shop, and we have so many unique exhibitors to help you complete all of your home renovations this summer,” Schenk said. 

Homeowners looking for inspiration for their next renovation, those considering putting in a pool and local gardeners will all find something of interest at this year’s show.

Both school boards will be back again this year, presenting hands-on activities where students can build and learn about the trades.

“Both boards will have gigantic booths and they’ll be doing hands-on activities for students,” said Schenk. “This is a great opportunity for kids to come and make something, and take something home.”

Schenk said kids went home in past years with “arms full of handmade projects, such as birdhouses.”

 “It’s a great way for students to experience some of the different machinery and learn a bit about skilled trades. All of those different hands-on activities give you a taste of each trade.”

Tickets to the Stratford Home and Leisure Show are $6 and can be purchased at the door. Admission for children under 12 is free. 

All the money raised goes directly into the community. It helps support community fundraisers such as team sports, Aquabox (clean water kits for disaster areas), Rotary Hospice Stratford-Perth, food banks and technical training at local schools. 

The Stratford Home and Leisure Show is a great way to support local businesses and learn about new and upcoming trends and innovations in the home industry. It’s a fun day out for the whole family with activities and events that appeal to all ages.
