House and Home Show Coming Soon

Dixon Main Street will host its 2008 House and Home Show from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on April 18 and April 19 at Kitzman’s Lumber, 411 W. 1st Street, Dixon. The event is sponsored by Kitzman’s Lumber, Sherwin-Williams, Hvarre Painting, and Burke Realty. The event is free and open to the public.

“This event is perfect for Main Street because there is nothing like it in Dixon,” Mitch Tucker, Sherwin Williams Market Manager and Main Street Board Member, said. “Plus, many people don’t realize how many businesses in the downtown provide services for home owners.”

The two-day event will feature booths by area painters, contractors, businesses, realtors, landscapers and other service professionals. The community will get the chance to learn more about the services and products these professionals provide. Booth spaces are still available and cost $100. To reserve a space, call the Dixon Main Street office at 815-288-2308.

“This is the first time that Dixon Main Street has held an event like this, and we couldn’t be more excited,” Josh Albrecht, Dixon Main Street executive director, said. “There is no better time to hold a House and Home show than in the early spring as people begin to work in their gardens and plan for home improvement projects.”
