Wilson Bank & Trust is celebrating a quarter century of home shows with the return of the Southern Home & Garden Expo, which takes place February 8 & 9 at the Wilson County Expo Center in Lebanon.
With free admission, the expo offers access to more than 100 exhibitors and experts in all areas of home improvement. This year’s show will also feature Saturday afternoon workshops; a special building project for children Saturday morning; concessions; and giveaways and door prizes valued at more than $16,000.
While growing in size, space and scope over 25 years, the event still retains its original focus, according to Wilson Bank & Trust CEO Randall Clemons.
“Starting a home improvement project or building a new home can be overwhelming for reasons beyond financing, and that hasn’t changed since we had our first Expo in the mid-1990s,” Clemons said. “This event started as a way to provide resources and ideas for our neighbors, customers and surrounding communities, and it’s benefited area homeowners enough to keep growing, with new elements being added every year.”
This year’s Southern Home & Garden Expo takes place Friday and Saturday, February 8-9. WB&T will offer special construction financing rates, and prizes and giveaways will include:
Expo hours are 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, February 8, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. February 9. More information is available on the event website at wbthomegardenexpo.com.
