Nearly 150 companies will be on hand when the 39th annual Linn County Spring Home and Garden Show opens its doors on Friday, Feb. 3.

The event will be held at the Linn County Fair & Expo Center, 3700 Knox Butte Road in Albany. Once again many popular events will be part of the three-day show which runs through Sunday, Feb. 5.

Hours are 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Plant sales, pet adoptions, prizes and numerous displays are slated, along with the traditional seminars, demonstrations, and personal contact with vendors and customers.

Experts will be on hand to advise about local home organizations, custom decking and fencing, gardening, and interior and exterior remodeling.

A multi-nursery plant and garden accessory sale will be sponsored by Tom’s Garden Center and U & D Nurseries.  Free trees will be handed out to the first 100 people at the show each day.

SafeHaven Humane Society and the Albany Petco will sponsor on-site pet adoptions at the Pet Pavilion.

Also notable this year is a yurt that will be set up for visiting by Mondo Yurt Company.

Kaleb Ramsay, the event director, said there will be random prizes from Parr Lumber and Home Depot given away hourly, throughout the weekend. Ramsay said prizes include $25 gift cards, tools and Parr Lumber gift packages.

Last year more than 6,000 people attended, Ramsay said.

Tickets are priced at $4 for adults and $3 for seniors. Those 16 and under are admitted free. Tickets are good for the entire weekend.  People bringing a non-perishable canned food item will receive two-for-one ticket pricing. Coupons are also available in the Albany Democrat-Herald, Lebanon Express and Corvallis Gazette-Times.

Among the sponsors for the show are Linn Benton Tractor, SunWize Solar Power, TNT Builders and Shonnard’s Nursery.

“We believe it will be a lot of fun for those attending,” Ramsay said. “We’re hoping to make a significantly positive impression.”
