The cold winds may be blowing but spring is just around the corner bringing programs and events to look forward to.

  We are especially excited for the return of the Jefferson County Chamber Spring Home Show, on March 2-3. It has been a few years since the area has seen such events.

Chamber of Commerce President Kate Sedgmer explained that this free event will appeal to new and seasoned homeowners, DIY enthusiasts, and anyone looking for home improvement ideas.

  “There are similar shows in neighboring areas, but the closest shows to us are Pittsburgh and Wheeling! We are fortunate to have attracted many of the ‘large’ vendors that typically frequent these shows,” she noted.

  They are anticipating about 60 vendors and displays from local and regional businesses and nonprofits as well as several pop-up displays. New this year is a Kids Korner to entertain the youngsters while their parents browse the exhibits.

  “The Show takes lots of planning, coordination with vendors, community, and volunteer support. We are excited to partner with the Public Libraries of Steubenville and Jefferson County to offer crafts and activities to children. We also hope to have an appraiser on hand so attendees can bring their vintage/antiques to be checked out,” she added.

  The 2024 Spring Home Show offering information on home renovation, landscaping, interior design, and home technology will be held at St. Florian Hall, 286 Luray Drive, Wintersville and run from 11am to 6pm on Saturday and again from 11am to 3pm on Sunday.
