Being held Saturday, June 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Recreation Complex, about 30 vendors have already signed up for the Trigg County Extension Homemakers-sponsored event.
Homemaker Charlotte Brown said she expects more than 50 vendors at this year’s event, which was attended last year by more than 1,000 people.
“It gets bigger every year,” she said, adding that most of its growth stems from word-of-mouth advertising.
Brown said the vending booths will be filled by local and regional healthcare providers, banks, realtors, insurance agents, jewelry sellers and local political parties.
“The vendors are what brings the people in,” she said.
The fee for vendors is $15 a table, or $10 if they provide their own.
Proceeds from the event will fund two $500 Homemakers scholarships — one for a Trigg County High School senior, the other for a Homemaker wishing to continue their education.
Of course, there is also more to the Women’s Show than vendors. Also featured will be some door prizes (including a two-night stay at the Lake Barkley lodge, luggage sets and grocery coupons). There will also be plenty of food, including lots of free samples —the event is sponsored by Homemakers, after all.
Despite the event’s name, Brown said, “We’ve got a lot of things for men.” In addition to the aforementioned food, construction-oriented booths will also be on hand.
There is no admission to the event, though donations to go toward the scholarships will gladly be accepted.
“It’s a fun day,” Brown said. “You can come and see what our community is all about.”
