Weekend-Long Event will Feature Home & Garden Vendors, Family Fun and More

NEW THIS YEAR: FREE ADMISSION 100 percent of the donations collected at the door will benefit AHIP and its local home repair programs.

As the largest and only trade show of its kind in Central Virginia, the 2015 Home and Garden Festival will showcase the newest and best innovations in building concepts, gardening and landscaping ideas, and remodeling solutions. With over 80 vendors this year, the BRHBA Home & Garden Festival will once again be Central Virginia’s Home and Garden event of the year.

For the first time, this event will be FREE to the public. A suggested donation of $5 will be collected at the door for AHIP (Albemarle Housing Improvement Program) and its local home repair programs. Donations of $20 and more will be entered into a prize drawing for a 40” Sony HDTV courtesy of Crutchfield. Donations will keep local seniors, neighbors and children Safe at Home by assisting with critical home repairs and rehabs. To help raise public awareness about the hazardous and unsafe living conditions some local families face on a daily basis and how AHIP’s programs help protect their health, safety and assets, the event will showcase before and after examples of major home repairs recently completed by AHIP. We are delighted to be working with our friends and partners at AHIP and to support the remarkable work they do here in our community to keep our neighbors safe, warm, and dry.

Hours are from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM both days. Hourly door prizes, kids’ activities, free parking, and local food and beer vendors will be a part of this fun event.
