Exhibitors fill Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds for Home show

It won’t be long before the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds makes its annual transformation into a haven for all things related to homes and gardens.

On March 22-24, the 26th annual Yuba City Total Home, Garden & Recreation Show takes over the fairgrounds in Yuba City.

“We have two tiny homes coming this year, which is new for this year,” said event promoter Andrew Coolidge. “We will also have more motorcycles, ATVs, tractors and power equipment this year – it’s the first time that we’ve had four dealers here and it’s finally becoming the show we’ve wanted it to become.”

Coolidge, who has been a part of the show since 2006, said they have 250 exhibitors and throughout the three-day show, they typically get about 14,000 attendees or more if the weather is good.

“The AeroSTEM Academy charter school moved into the Flower House recently and they’ll be doing flight simulation for kids as well as robots demos,” he said. “We decided to go all-in for the teens and tweens this year with model air plane building and other things at the AeroSTEM Academy and I think it’ll add to the experience.”

He said the list of exhibitors is as extensive as in previous years, but said the devastating fires drove many of the businesses to sign up and be part of the show earlier than usual.

“This show sold out faster than any show we’ve done since 2006 and it’s directly related to the fires,” he said. “More companies are coming from Sacramento and they’re looking to be part of the rebuilding that’s happening in the areas that were damaged by the fires.”

The show will feature outdoor displays and five of the fairground’s halls full of ideas and information for home or yard improvement projects.

Information on solar energy, hot tubs and pool companies, nurseries and garden art and a food court will be at the event. For more information, visit www.ychomeshow.com.
