If you’re planning some changes to your indoor or outdoor space, the Home and Garden Show is the place to be. There are dozens of Exhibitors, all in one place, just waiting to help you with your special projects.

The SPRING HOME and GARDEN SHOW brought to you by The CANADIAN LAKEHEAD EXHIBITION is just days away. The 20th Annual Spring event takes place in five indoor venues and again this year we will have an expanded outdoor area for Exhibitors, all on the C.L.E. GROUNDS, April 6th to April 8th 2018. Admission is $3.oo (Good for all Weekend) with children under 12 Free


The SHOW, originally, THE SPRING YARD N’ GARDEN SHOW, has grown tremendously over the years. The inaugural Show took place as a one building event and progressed to encompass other C.L.E. buildings. On the Shows 10th anniversary, it was realized, that in order to expand, more space was needed, thus the partnership with the Sports Dome and a new name for the Show…..THE SPRING HOME and GARDEN SHOW. Our 20th year will again be brought to you solely by the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition.


The 2018 Spring HOME and GARDEN SHOW will be housed in the Coliseum, Heritage, Scarnati& Claydon Buildings as well as the Cardinal Room. The Dove building (Home of The Thunder Bay Country Market) is also part of the Show and will be open Friday evening and Saturday with two floors of crafters, bakers, specialty items and the like.We will also have a considerable outdoor area for you to visit. All these areas will be offering Exhibitor displays  featuring everything that you would perhaps like to gain knowledge of or visualize for your own home and garden.


The Spring Home and Garden Show is truly the showcase for all your Home and Garden dreams. It is the one stop shopping mecca for your spring and summer, indoor or outdoor projects and leisure activities. The opportunity to avail yourselves of endless products, services and expert advice is presented to you all in one place. Our exhibiting businesses offer a vast variety of knowledge, equipment and supplies to get your job done. The Home and Garden Show brings to you all aspects of home improvement and décor as well as all your yard and garden beautification needs.


The Spring Home and Garden Show is more than just businesses, we also have a small number of local charity and non-profit groups. The weekend is a good time to lend your support to these worthy causes. Eco Superior will be back  again with their Painted Rain Barrel Art Auction and will be part of our display garden in the Heritage Building. St. John Ambulance will be promoting their travel trailer draw. There will be other groups present so please support them as well. Our Thunder At The Bay Motorsports Extravaganza volunteers will also be selling 50/50 tickets in support of our local Boys and Girls Club

Come on down and beat the winter blahs, have lunch at one of our concessions, meet your friends, do some shopping, enter our free draws, be sure you check out the Eco Superior Painted Rain Barrel Art Auction at the PM Landscaping Display Garden.
