Sioux Empire Home Show at Convention Center this weekend

Posted: Updated:

Hosted by the Home Builders Association of the Sioux Empire (HBASE), the 55th Annual Sioux Empire Home Show will showcase over 200 home-related booths from March 7-9, 2014 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. Show hours are Friday and Saturday from 10am to 9pm and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.

The Home Show will feature free workshops sponsored by Xcel Energy. They will be held throughout the weekend in Meeting Rooms #1 and #2 and are great way to learn new tips and pick up great ideas for 2014. Admission into the Home ShowTM is not required to attend the workshops or cooking demonstrations. Some workshop topics include window coverings, interior design, radon gas, 3D drafting and things you must know in case of fire or water damage in your home.

Admission to the 2014 Sioux Empire Home ShowTM is $7 for adults or $6 for seniors (Friday ONLY, 65 years old and over). Children under 12 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Advance tickets can be purchased for $6 at Lewis Drug locations in Sioux Falls. Discount coupons good for $1 off adult admission are available on the HBASE's web site. There will also be a $10 weekend pass sold at the Convention Center during show hours (coupon does not apply).

The gold sponsor for this event is South Dakota Housing Development Authority. Over 100 volunteers make this event so successful from assisting with set up during the week to taking tickets during show hours to assisting with tear down afterwards.

Students from Southeast Technical Institute will be running a coat check in Meeting Room 3 at the show. The free will offerings will benefit their construction program.

To accommodate overflow parking during the event, a free shuttle will transport exhibitors and consumers on Saturday and Sunday only. The pick-up locations will be at McCart Fields and Elmwood Golf Course.

Shuttles will run to and from McCart Park and Elmwood Golf Course on Saturday, March 8 from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. There is no charge for parking or for the shuttle service.
