(March 8, 2018) During the 35th annual Home, Condo and Outdoor Show with arts and crafts this weekend, homeowners can check out more than 200 booths of products and services from more than 150 vendors at the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street.

“It’s a very relaxed environment.,” Show Creator Mike Wicklein said. “It’s a good way for people to look into interior and exterior living situations. If they’re looking for products or services, [this] is the place to do it.”

Thousands of ideas or products for kitchens, baths, furnishings, sunrooms, energy conservation, cabinetry, spas, water treatment, security, appliances, financial services, roofs, solar products, gutters, accessories, fireplaces, furniture, crawl spaces, waterproofing, pools, hot tubs, lighting, carpets and outdoor living can be found at the show.

Attendees can browse and compare products between different vendors to find the best fit and price.

There will be hundreds of experts on hand to give tips, advice and ideas on decorating, remodeling, accessorizing, renovating, landscaping or building a home.

“Instead of seeing just one builder they can see four, instead of one plumber, they can see three or four,” Wicklein said. “They can shop around and compare prices. Also, a lot of the vendors are putting their best foot forward and giving show specials.”

The show also partners with the Art and Craft Fair, which offers a variety of unique and homemade gifts.

“They’re a smaller part of the show but they’re important,” Wicklein said. “They have very unique, always handmade products. It’s great for people that are shopping around for little accessories for their place or make a gift. Not to mention, Easter is coming up. We’ve got some unique art and crafters from near and far.”

Last year, approximately 6,000 people attended the annual event, Wicklein said.

“You can check around ... and maybe see what you’ve been looking for, maybe you will find something that you weren’t looking for,” Wicklein said. ‘There’s a lot of possibilities, and a lot of vendors ... it’s Delmarva’s largest home show.”

In addition, the show will feature free drawings and door prizes including a 50/50 raffle hosted by Temple Bat Yam where the winner could take home thousands of dollars on Sunday. You do not need to be present to win.

The show will take place today, Friday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, March 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 18, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

There is a $7 admission fee for adults; seniors (55 and older) and students (14-22) get in for $6. Also, military, police, fire personnel with their ID and children 13 and under get in free.
