Now in its 47th year, the York Builders Association Home Show presented by York Traditions Bank returns again this weekend to the Utz Arena at the York Expo Center, 334 Carlisle Road.

Whether it is a new addition or new windows, a bathroom remodel or landscaping, the Home Show aims to match homeowners with professionals to take care of even the longest honey-do list.

“The people you’re dealing with and you are going to meet at our show are local,” said Cathy Warner, the York Builders Association’s director of events. “You probably see them at the grocery store or your kids’ events.

“That what’s really nice. You’re dealing with people in your own back yard.”

Warner said the Home Show is a one-stop shop for anyone looking to do a repair, renovation or build a new home.

Nearly 150 vendors will be on hand.

“You can actually see the products and services at the show. It’s a really good chance to do a little bit of comparison shopping in one afternoon,” Warner said.

“There will be a couple different builders, a couple different window people. It’s a good use of time.”

Entertainment, too: Along with the vendors, Warner said the Home Show has grown into an event filled with entertainment beyond talking construction.

On Friday, guests 21 and older can participate in the Wine, Ale and Home Trail.

Six local wineries and breweries will offer samples while Steve Bahn from Logan’s View Winery offers tips to enhance the wine experience, Caputo Brothers Creamery demonstrates mozzarella pulling, and personal chef Tom Gillin cooks the perfect dish to go with the wine on the Strine’s Heating and A/C Stage.

The Wine, Ale and Home Trail begins at 4 p.m., with Bahn taking the stage at 5:30 p.m.

Saturday includes a Lego home-building competition for children at 2 p.m.

Registration begins at 1 p.m., and cash prizes will be awarded to the best builders in each age class.

And home show visitors can get up close and personal with mice, voles, a skunk, an opossum, snakes and possibly even a bird of prey on Sunday as Jack Hubley presents “Critters Beyond Your Back Door” at 2:30 p.m.

“It’s an event,” Warner said. “You’re coming to learn about your home, but you’re having fun, too.”

Attendance: Warner said the show typically sees about 4,000 attendees over the three days, and nearly $10 million in business is expected to be generate by the show.

“If you think about it, you’re talking about new homes being built, remodels, people having windows replaced,” she said, explaining that last year an exhibitor got a $1 million home project at the show.

“It’s nice to because we have a lot of small businesses. … It’s where they get a lot of their business for the year.”

The three-day Home Show opens at 1 p.m. Friday, staying open until 9 p.m. that day.

The show also is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is $8; children under 18 are free.
