Fourth annual Monroeville Home Show set for this weekend at the Monroeville Convention Center

Michael DiVittorio

People looking to start housing projects or want to talk with experts about home improvement can find all they need and more at the Monroeville Convention Center this weekend.

Simon Event Management of Greensburg presents the fourth annual Monroeville Home Show Jan. 25-27 at 209 Mall Blvd.

“Every year it gets a little bigger,” Producer Kelly Simon said. “You can walk in to the show and be able to talk with experts from every different type of company. It’s pretty much everything you can imagine.”

More than 200 exhibitors will be on hand offering information and services for home building, decorating, landscaping and various repairs.

The three-day event is much more than windows, doors, pools and roofing.

“We’ve incorporated some special areas into the show,” Simon said. “It’s nice that they can walk around and be able to do some other things.”

Special areas include:

  • Kids Kingdom with costumed characters, face painting and a bounce house among other activities.
  • Wine Pavilion by Starr Hill Winery of Clearfield County with at least 20 different wines to sample and purchase by the glass or by the bottle.
  • Craft Beer Corner by Vecenie Distributing of Pittsburgh with at least 20 different beers and complimentary samples.
  • Pet Lover’s Pavilion with the latest in foods, services and accessories for cats and dogs.
  • Author’s Avenue featuring local authors of books on a wide range of topics such as haunted houses and Bigfoot.
  • An entertainment stage with cooking demonstrations, live music and talks on food, health and home buying.

Authors include paranormal researchers Stan Gordon and Ed Kelemen and humorist David Melesky.

Special guest Aubrey Marunde of HGTV’s “Flip or Flop Vegas” will be on hand 5:30-8:30 p.m. Friday and noon-3 p.m. Saturday.

She’ll meet with attendees and discuss their plans, ideas, colors, fabrics and more.

Admission is $5 for adults. Children under 12 get in free and parking is free.

People who bring in a nonperishable food item or pet food for a local food bank can get a buy-one-get-one-free admission.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
