Cornwall Ontario –  It’s a welcome tradition for thousands of Cornwallites as we welcome the warmer weather after a long cold winter. It’s the annual Spring Home & Leisure Show and the Chamber invites you to the Civic Complex and Come in to the Outdoors.

“After a long, cold winter, our Spring Show promises to be a wonderful way to leave the cold and snow behind,” reports Lezlie Strasser, the Chamber’s Executive Manager. “Once again we’ll have close to 100 exhibitors on hand with all of the latest in home and garden products and services. It promises to be an exciting event for thousands of people across the Cornwall region.”

As is the Show’s tradition, there will be many demonstrations and each exhibit will have professionals on hand to answer questions and offer handy tips for your latest home improvement project. It’s a great way for area consumers to get a first-hand look at terrific new products and services to help them get the most out of their lawns and gardens.


Matt Drouin from BBQwithDREW will be giving a live grilling presentation on Saturday from 12 to 4pm.

With hundreds of live barbecue events, demonstrations, and feasts under the belt, BBQwithDREW is a growing Canadian BBQ brand, pit master and blogger, inspired by true southern BBQ, that shares the passion for the wood-fired experience and the barbecue industry with you.

Golf and Family Fun

Two perennial favourites at the Spring Home and Leisure Show are the Summerheights Golf Challenge and Family Fun Zone. The Chamber is pleased to announce that both of them will be back for this year’s event.

Specical Contests
