Home Garden Flower Show

with Cannabis

The 2021 Show will be held May 21 • May 22 • May 23

The HomeGardenFlower Show with Cannabis at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds has been rescheduled in 2021 for the weekend before Memorial Day, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 21-23, and we look forward to welcoming you and putting on our best show ever. 

Like all mass-gathering summer events in Maine this year's show was cancelled.

“We’re no different than anyone else putting on events,” said show producer and associate publisher of the The Conway Daily Sun Joyce Brothers, “but it still feels no less disappointing.”

 

Attendance has increased year to year since The Conway Daily Sun took over the show three years ago with new features like the cannabis building and live music.  More music was scheduled this year with two live bands a day, featuring Jon Sarty, The Jason Spooner Band and the Gravel Project. 

 

The show features 125 exhibitors which sell everything from tomato plant seedlings to mattresses. Brothers says the secret to making the show successful is to attract enough people to make the exhibitors happy, and the way to do that is to add fun things like music, food and drink, which make attendees happy. “It all works together and that makes it rewarding,” said Brothers.

 

Attendance grew last year to more than 5,000 paid attendees over the three days. 

 

Brothers says weather in mid May is always a challenge and while she won’t call it a silver lining, she says because the show this year would have been on the earliest day in the month possible, if a show had to be canceled this would be the one. 

“Next year Memorial Day is on the 31st, which means our show will start on the 21st, six days later than this year,” Brothers said. “Six days can mean a big difference in temperatures this time of year.  We are looking ahead to nothing but blue skies and warm weather in 2021.”

Businesses interested in participating in the show are encouraged to take advantage of an early sign-up special by contacting Brothers at joyce@conwaydailysun.com.

From landscapers and builders to vegetable growers, and from mattresses to hot tubs, there are nearly 150 exhibitors offering services and products for your home, garden and personal use.  A limited number of carts are available to haul items you buy and if you need help just ask one of the Home Show helpers who will be wearing Home Show T-Shirts. For a full list of exhibitors, check here when we get closer to the show.

LIST OF EXHIBITORS

It’s Maine, where cannabis is legal but not yet sold in retail for recreational use. Here, you’ll find exhibitors that offer products to grow your own and for personal use, but the preponderance of cannabis vendors sell edibles and products for medicinal use.  Anyone with aches, pains, and stress?  These are the people for you.

Join us for full glasses of wine and beer in the Specialty Pavillion.  Hosted by Lake Region Caterers from Naples, this is the first year the show has offered more than just samples of your favorite beverages.  Oysters served by 302 Roadhouse will also be served in the building and just outside there are food trucks. Plenty of seating both in and outside. A perfect to place to refresh and take a break, particularly at 3.30 each day when the music begins.
