The 2024 Athens-Limestone Home & Garden Show Is Almost Here!

By: Ali Elizabeth Turner

After a hiatus of way too many years, navigating through COVID and coming out the other side, one of the best parts of spring in Limestone County is back by popular demand: the Chamber of Commerce Home & Garden Show. It will be held March 15-17 at Carter Gym on the Athens State University campus.

When I say, “back by popular demand,” I am not kidding. Pammie Jimmar and Brooke Pettus of the Chamber of Commerce both told me that Chamber members started asking awhile back when the Home & Garden Show was going to be back, and they are working hard to get all the details finalized.

This year, the Presenting Sponsor is Impact Roofing. Gold Sponsors are EarthSmart Windows and Doors, Persell Lumber and Mill Shop, Window World of HSV, and Yellowhammer Roofing. Silver Sponsors are Grayson Carter and Son Contracting and Parallel 36 @ Liberty.

“We felt like this year was the perfect time to bring the show back,” said Pammie Jimmar, President of the Athens-Limestone Chamber of Commerce. For her part, Pammie was brand new to the area and the position when COVID hit and used that time to “fall in love” with the Athens-Limestone County Community and position the Chamber to bring the Home & Garden Show back. She talked about the fact that Athens is positioned well for this event; it’s right in the middle between Huntsville/Madison, Decatur, and Florence.

Chamber Events Coordinator Brooke Pettus said that Chamber members began to contact her about bringing the H & G Show back and agreed with Pammie that this was the perfect time. She likes Home & Garden shows because they “spark new ideas.” She also noted that it is important that we support what she called “the DIY (Do It Yourself) community.” There are people who love tackling projects great and small, and this event is perfect for them. There are a whole lot of folks who want to find an excellent company to take care of what they envision, and again, this event is perfect for them.

Admission for the event is $5 CASH ONLY, and children under 12 are free. Kids will have the chance to do crafts, and face painting will be available. There will be food trucks available all three days.

Representatives from every aspect of home improvement will be present, from remodeling to roofs to windows to siding to plumbing to new construction to real estate to financing and more. You will be able to explore the latest trends in kitchens, baths, paint, siding, lighting, and decorating. For your home’s interior, you can find help with custom picture framing, lighting, and furniture selection.

Because the Chamber of Commerce is all about building business as well as building community, this “making-a-comeback” event is something that I think all of us can agree that we need. With Limestone County being the fastest growing county in the great State of Alabama, people are hungry for the chance to see what makes this area so attractive, why living here is such a good idea, and what they can do to make their own personal space beautiful and unique. I expect that this year’s Home & Garden Show will almost feel more like a celebration rather than a largely commercial endeavor, and I know it will have been worth the wait!

In all, there is something for everyone at a price that can’t be beat, and the Limestone County Chamber of Commerce Home and Garden Show is a marvelous way to wait for spring to finally spring. See you there!
