Coming Friday through Sunday, March 6–8, the Whatcom County Home and Garden Show will highlight the latest advances in home and garden care.
Sponsored by the Building Industry Association of Whatcom County (BIAWC), the event is held at the Northwest Washington Fair and Event Center in Lynden. The event is the largest home and garden expo north of Seattle. More than 200 vendors are scheduled to display products.
In addition to the vendor displays, the weekend will be packed with seminars on a wide range of subjects. Everything from integrating technology into your home, raising your own backyard chickens, the basics of pest control and practical solutions to conserving energy will be discussed by a panel of local experts.
On Saturday, March 7, a series of entertainers will help close out the evening’s festivities. At 6 p.m., Bellingham’s a cappella troop, The Honey Bees, will perform a selection of standards from the 1920s through the 1960s. Improv performers from Bellingham’s The Upfront Theatre will provide some laughs on the Banner Bank stage at 7 p.m., and singer/songwriter Ryan Sandholm will perform in the garden at 8 p.m.
On Friday and Saturday, participate in local beer and wine tastings.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and free for kids 16 and younger. For a full schedule of events, visit biawc.com.
