Welcome to the Neighborhood!
Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer, or looking for products and services from reliable home improvement professionals, or simply looking for a place for some family fun, visit the 37th Annual Rome Home Show at its new location: Kennedy Arena, 500 West Embargo Street, in Rome. Approximately 100 vendors will be available on Saturday, April 28, from 10am to 6pm, and Sunday, April 29, from 10am to 4pm, to showcase new products, explain new services, and give advice for your latest home improvement, garden, lifestyle and leisure projects.
In Spring 2011, eleven armories were closed across New York State, including the Rome Armory on Black River Boulevard, where, with few exceptions, the Rome Chamber’s Home Show has been held almost every year since 1976. Kennedy Arena is the Rome Home Show’s new location, at 500 West Embargo Street, on the site of the old Thron’s Pond in the heart of a neighborhood in West Rome.
Something for Everyone!
"The Show celebrates the Rome Chamber’s 100th birthday and the return of Spring with 17,000 sq. ft. of bigger, better, brighter exhibit space," said Laurie Fusco, in her 7th year as chairman of the Rome Home Show Committee. "With hourly demonstrations on a variety of topics, shopping at The Marketplace, vendors and the Arena concession for food, plenty of free parking, we want to keep everyone happy so they can take their time and enjoy the show. Fun in the Neighborhood...Just like the good old days, only better!"
