And its happening this weekend, May 15-17 at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds, Fryeburg, Maine.

There is something for every one, and every age at this show. All things related to the home, with kitchens foremost on the mind, to bustling garden centers selling zone hardy perennials, annuals, and veggies, to garden artists and other related businesses - you'll have to manage your time wisely to see it all. With interest in local foods, and farm to table experiences, the Show has organized a 'Meet the Chefs Cooking Series' which will offer hands-on demonstrations for both adult and child. A Miniature train display by Maine Garden and Railroad Society will keep the little buggers busy enough for you to attend one of many seminars hosted by home and garden experts too. Tickets are only $8, with seniors paying just $4 and children 6 and under free. Check out schedules, vendors, exhibits, sponsors and more online, or call 1-800-359-2033 for more information.
