A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SOUTHERN OREGON HOME SHOW
The first annual Southern Oregon Home Show was held at the old Holiday Inn Convention Center in April, 1983.
The show was conceived as a means to assist members of the local Home Builders Association during a time of depression in the construction business. There were 37 exhibits in our first Home Show. The show was judged a great success by both the Association and the exhibitors and it was decided to make it an annual event.
The following year, the Association Board of Directors chose to move the show to the Oregon National Guard Armory. The only weekend available was the second weekend in February. The response from the exhibitors was more than we had hoped and we also had a cooking contest between area high schools. The show has continued to grow each year as more exhibitors purchase space.
Our exhibitors come from all over the state of Oregon, as well as from California and Washington. Most of our out-of-town exhibitors and visitors stay in local motels and eat many meals in local restaurants. Thus, our show contributes to the Rogue Valley economy.
In 2003 we moved the Home Show to a larger venue, the Jackson County Exposition Center, to accommodate the overflow of exhibitors
The Home Builders Association of Jackson County is proud that our Home Show contributes to the local economy in so many ways: The exhibitors promote their products and skills, stimulating business in the valley, and the local motels, restaurants and stores also benefit from the exhibitors and the approximately 10,000+ people who attend the show each year.
