Spring is upon us and that means its, once again, home show time in Dufferin-Caledon. We are most fortunate to have two annual home shows each spring: one in Dufferin County and one in Caledon. The home shows display many of our community's finest businesses and organizations and the many outstanding services and products they offer.

The first home show in Dufferin-Caledon this spring will be the 12th Annual Orangeville Lions Club Home and Garden Show, which will take place from Friday, April 3rd to Sunday, April 5th. It will be held at the Orangeville Agricultural Building and Fairgrounds, in Mono Township (off Highway 10, just north of Orangeville). There will be 199 booths for a total of 122 exhibitors (25 of the exhibitors are new to the show) this year, ranging from roofing and carpeting solutions to water purification to kitchen experts.

The Orangeville Lions Club Home and Garden Show is sure to continue its tradition of having exciting features, including the Lions Club food booth and “Merv’s Baked Potatoes.” For more information, please visit the Club's website at Admission to the show is free and several charitable organizations will be present representing our community. 

The second home show will take place later in April. This is the Caledon Home Show, which is hosted by the Caledon Chamber of Commerce. It will be held from Friday, April 17th to Sunday, April 19th at the Don Sheardown Memorial Arena (Albion Bolton Community Centre), in Bolton. This highly-anticipated event has become a highlight of the spring season, featuring approximately 80 exhibitors and draws approximately 4,000 to 5,000 visitors from all of Caledon and surrounding areas. Each year the Chamber attracts various exhibitors offering many local products and services.

The Caledon Home Show also includes many other exciting activities throughout the weekend including: a penny raffle, door prize draws, live entertainment, demonstrations, and a bar-b-que. For more information on this home show, please feel free to contact the Caledon Chamber of Commerce at 905-857-7393 or visit their website at

I'm very pleased to be participating in both home shows by having an exhibitor booth in each. I invite you to come by to say hello and to learn more about the various Federal Government services available to you and your family, including information on the new Home Renovation Tax Credit recently introduced by our Government.

I encourage you to kick off the spring plans and cleaning by visiting at least one of these outstanding home shows and see the fantastic range of organizations and businesses we have right here in Dufferin-Caledon. There is truly something for everyone. I look forward to seeing you there!
