The 2021 Spring  Home Owners Expo was delayed due to the COVID surge in the area. “We are excited to have our shows back on track for 2022,” said Scott Smith, President of Mid-Atlantic Expos, “and to have our educational seminars back for our guests again this year as well as many marketplace exhibitors with great products and items for the home. ”  Admission is $6 for adults, and kids under 17 are free!

In 2006, Mid Atlantic Expos launched their first community Home and Garden Expo at the National Guard Armory in Annapolis. “I had this idea, and lined up Rupert Boneham, star of the Survivor TV series, as my special guest.  Rupert put the radio and TV spots together for me, and the theme was “Can you survive a home improvement project”? “

Over the ensuing 17  years, Mid Atlantic Expos has helped homeowners discover great opportunities for their homes with local and regional companies specializing in everything from driveways to roofs to landscaping. Most of the exhibitors do not have showrooms, and are family-owned and operated businesses that depend on shows to serve as their retail space to meet prospective customers. Educational seminars over the years have featured celebrity guest speakers including Sabrina Soto, Vern Yip, Alison Victoria, Nicole Simpson, Richard Karn, Tom Silva, Kevin O’Conner, Paul James, Jason Cameron, and Matt Blashaw.
