Kick off spring in style with a visit to the Four Corners Home and Garden Show March 31 and April 1.

The 23rd annual event at the Montezuma County Fairgrounds is a showcase of local businesses and services that attracts thousands of people, said event coordinator Amber Kennedy. It is sponsored by the Four Corners Builders Association.

“We’re excited, the event has been building up every year,” she said. “Take a break from all the snow to come hang out and have some fun in the sun.”

Up to 100 business vendors will display and promote an impressive variety of goods and services ranging from home items, interior decorating, gardening and seed companies, to building ideas, real-estate, artwork, bath products and more. Last year, 1,800 people came through over two days, Kennedy said.

There will be several food trucks, and Esmeralda’s Ranchito will be serving meals in the fairgrounds kitchen.

A classic car show on Saturday sponsored by O’Reilly’s Auto Parts will be set up with dozens of stylish and retro vehicles from regional aficionados. A Best of Show trophy will be awarded.

“There is really something for everyone,” Kennedy says. “You’ll see groups of ladies leaving with bags full of goods. Then the guys come in to check out the custom knife guy and metal artwork, walk outside to food vendors and classic cars —a great day for all,” Kennedy says.

Vendors come from all over the Four Corners, including Durango, Bayfield and Farmington.

The marketing benefits for businesses in the show are worth the effort and affordable booth fee, Kennedy said.

“I’ve seen businesses get started at this show. They get the clients and make face-to-face connections in the community,” she said.

Deals galore are to be found, including 25% off at Badland Billiard and Hot Tubs.

Check out local favorites Moonlit Naturals, Centennial Candle Co., Reflections of Metal, Cortez Glass, Sunglass Cortez, Southwest Ag, Four Corners Worm Farm, Aspen Wall Wood, End of Trail Catering and plus many more.

M Salon will set up a mini-salon.

“Ladies love that one,” Kennedy said.

For children, there will be a booth for face painting and a hopefully a giant slide. A&C Farm and Pet plans to bring in a pond with ducks.

Technology vendors, including T-Mobile, Farmer’s Telephone and Empire Electric, will be there.

So far, 85 businesses have signed up for booths, and space is still available. Kennedy hinted that no landscaping or solar vendors have signed up yet.

The Montezuma County Noxious Weed department will have a booth to educate people on identifying weeds to pull and services to help reduce weed infestations.

Cadets from the Pueblo Community College Law Enforcement Academy plan to attend and share program information. Notably, women make up a majority of this year’s class.

Members of Veterans of Foreign Wars and The American Legion will present the colors Saturday at 9 a.m. The Four Corners Builders Association will have a booth and information, and will be recruiting for board members.
