The Building Industry Association of Central South Carolina (BIA) announced that its 55th annual Carolina Classic Home & Garden Show will be held at the State Fairgrounds May 21 through May 23.

Home construction, improvement and outdoor products exhibits will occupy the Cantey and Goodman buildings, as well as outdoor areas of the fairgrounds.

“We are very happy to be back in 2021,” said Bill Earle, chairman of the Home & Garden Show committee. “The homebuilding industry has really exploded over the past 10 months, and we’re ready to help consumers connect to local building industry professionals this spring.”

Organizers were planning on holding the show during the second weekend of March, however due to COVID-19 safety concerns, the show has been moved to May.

“Home shows held this year in other parts our state have welcomed sizeable crowds, and we’re looking forward to a big show this year,” said Earl McLeod, chief executive officer of the BIA. “People are ready to get out and be active, and this show will be a great opportunity for them to do that while planning their home projects and upgrades.”

Safety precautions will be in place for attendees to follow throughout the exhibition. Exhibitors will have the ability to set up virtual displays featuring photos, videos and links to products in their booths and showrooms. Live chats with company representatives will also be available. The virtual component is now available online.

Additional information about the show or those interested in becoming an exhibitor can visit the BIA of Central SC website.
