The public is invited to join us as we celebrate “Outdoor California Living” at the 27th annual Visalia Home & Patio Springfest, February 7, 8 & 9, at the Visalia Convention Center.
This year, Luis Nursery teams up with Gowin Green to create a special “Affordable Backyard Landscape” in the center of the large Exhibit Hall. “Recently the news media reported that Visalia had the most affordable housing in the state. So we wanted to target new home owners, especially those in need of an affordable landscape design” reports Show Manager, Steve Tarter. “The goal is to enhance, expand, and enjoy all of your home’s outdoor living areas.”
Planning to start with the patio? These local companies – will all be under one roof – at South Valley’s largest Home Show. Backyard & Home, located in Bakersfield, has recently joined the home show and will display patio covers sunrooms, fireplace inserts, grills, smokers, and hot tubs! Dan Bocanegra, local owner of Majestic Pools returns to help you design a one-of-a-kind swimming pool with a cool waterfall. For outdoor cooking, then look no further than Northern California Grills as they specialize in BBQ islands and outdoor kitchens. And sink into the seat of luxury and experience the feeling of complete relaxation at the Patio Resort Lifestyles’ booth. You can enter-to-win one of the outdoor patio set they plan to giveaway.
