South Florida Fair organizes first home improvement show

From impact windows to home fitness equipment, the South Florida Fair’s Home Improvement & More Show is set to offer a one-stop shopping experience for residents looking to make at-home enhancements.

With over 60 vendors in attendance, the free event is set for Friday, Oct. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 25 at the Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd., in West Palm Beach. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Representing an array of home improvement areas, the vendors include kitchen, bath, water filtration, patios, doors, landscape, security, remolding, hot tubs, roofing, gazebos, household items, art, jewelry, window treatment, decks, patios, screening, tree services, flooring and automotive.

After experiencing a couple of bumps in the road due to COVID-19, South Florida Fair and Palm Beach County Expositions President and CEO Vicki Chouris and corporate sales manager Tim Pachis overcame obstacles to put together the event.

“We had on our books a home show that is done by someone professionally all the time at different locations,” Chouris said. “They decided they were having some challenges early on with getting enough vendors… So, they canceled on us. We said, ‘We could go ahead and try to do this ourselves’ and that’s exactly what we did.

“Tim [Pachis] just started reaching out to different businesses that have the offerings for home improvement shows and got a positive response,” Chouris said. “People were anxious to participate. The vendors wanting to get out there and showcase their products.”

Guests are required to wear a mask for entry and will be asked to social distance. Spaced out walkways and hand sanitation stations will also be available.

Managing to put the event together within eight weeks, some of the event sponsors include Bath
