Fall home garden and gourmet expo returns Aug. 29-30
Meet with over 100 local home, garden, and remodeling experts, all while tasting gourmet food and wine
– Are you planning a remodel this fall to create a beautiful living environment or to increase the value of your home? Attend the Inspired Home, Garden, & Gourmet Expo at the Paso Robles Event Center on Aug. 29 and 30 for a weekend filled with live demonstrations of products, exploring the textures of what could be your future flooring, countertops, or cabinets, finding necessary resources to keep your house safe and clean such as heating and air professionals, water filters, alarm companies, and enjoy local gourmet food and wine.
This bi-annual event has something new every time from new businesses in the area, great specials on services and products, new recipes to try out for the holidays, and fun ideas you can incorporate into your home. Come check out the beautiful showcases to be displayed: a full 20 x 20′ garage and a 20 x 20′ bedroom on display. Each item in the showcase is available through a local exhibitor, keeping your dollars local and helping the local economy! This event is a perfect weekend activity for new and current homeowners, anyone interested in updating or remodeling their home, and anyone interested in new resources and ideas for their home and garden.
Don’t miss the “Inspired Quickies in the Bedroom” Stop by the bedroom display every hour, on the hour, to see how easy it can be to change your bedding. Local interior designer, Camay Arad of Chameleon Style will inspire attendees with the easily interchangeable and customizable bedding options she offers at her Arroyo Grande store.
