Suburban Indy Show Welcomes New Visitors

For those hoping to attend one of the cancelled home improvement shows, make a trip to Westfield instead

WESTFIELD, IN – The Suburban Indy Home & Outdoor Living Show, featuring the Spring Marketplace,  and presented by GVC Mortgage, is set to take place April 1-3 at Grand Park Events Center in Westfield, Indiana. The show will offer Indy area residents their only opportunity to attend a home improvement show this spring. With the cancellations of other large, heavily attended home improvement shows, those seeking home and garden advice are offered an alternative in Westfield.

This will be the second Suburban Indy Home & Outdoor Living Show produced since the start of the pandemic. The first show, which occurred in October 2020, received a 98% positive rating re: health & safety protocols from showgoers and exhibitors in post-show surveys. Similar health and safety protocols, approved by the Hamilton County Health Department, will again be in place for the April show. The large lobby and 100,000 square foot showfloor inside of a 300,000+ square foot space at the events center provides plenty of room for social distancing.

The show will provide a much-needed, safe platform for local and small businesses, primarily in the home improvement sector, to showcase their goods and services to Suburban Indy area residents who are looking to build beautiful outdoor and indoor living spaces and  Show attendees will also be able to sample, purchase and enjoy local foods, shop with local artisans, purchase plants and decor from local garden centers and ultimately improve their home and outdoor living environment.

Additional 2021 Spring Show Highlights include:

  • Multiple indoor & outdoor living displays to provide ideas & inspiration!
  • Plant market offering live flowers, plants, garden tools & décor, fairy gardens & more!
  • Daily giveaways, featuring Cutco garden tools, a Roomba, Easter baskets filled with exhibitor goodies, a Big Green Egg grill and power RotoShovels!
  • Show Dough will be given away to many winners. These show-specific gift certificates can be used to shop with exhibitors at the show!
  • Socially distanced inflatable activities will be set up inside each day of the show and free for the young and young at heart!

Local entrepreneur and owner of Suburban Indy Shows, Donell Heberer Walton, is grateful for the opportunity to provide this much needed marketplace this spring season.

“The event industry, as well as the exhibitors, have suffered greatly during the pandemic,” said Walton. “With protocols in place, we’re confident shows can happen safely and I look forward to building upon our positive fall experience. I am proud we have been able to work closely with our facility and local health department to show the community that we can do business in person, safely.”
