CFSB Center to host home, garden and farm show

By Kacie Lawrence | March 19, 2024

MURRAY – Western Kentucky has a reputation for being a great place to be outdoors, and as spring approaches, it’s easy to find our minds wandering to plans for all the things that one can do out of our winter cocoons. For those who have big ideas or are looking for inspiration, the West Kentucky Home, Garden and Farm Show at the CFSB Center this Friday and Saturday might be a good place to start. 

The man behind the show, Daniel Walker of DW Enterprises, wants the public to know that this is an event that promises to have a “little something” for everyone. Exhibitors’ offerings range from roofing to plumbing, from financing to furniture, plants to pest control, renovations to recreation, interior and exterior.

“We will have landscape and lawn care vendors there,” Walker said, “all kinds of equipment dealers from tractors and farming equipment, lawnmowers and yard equipment, all-purpose utility vehicles and golf carts; (and) plenty of different contractors and suppliers of all needs.” 

Walker, a Murray native who has long worked in event management, said the idea for the show came while having coffee with a friend. 

“The idea for the show isn’t technically mine,” Walker admitted, “The show was once an annual event here in Murray and was run by Froggy (103.7) for a number of years in the 2000s. They let the show go around the 2010s and it hasn’t happened since. That is until last year.”

The renewed event is in its second year running. Last year, the show hosted 51 vendors and was attended by over 2,500 people, and this year, the show promises to be even bigger. 

“We have already signed roughly 75 vendors and are still communicating with more daily.” Walker said last week.

In addition to outdoor style vendors, the event will play host to vendors of the home sales variety such as Scentsy, Tupperware, Norwex, and Pampered Chef. There will also be several boutiques, homemade fudge, roasted nuts and more.

Walker also wants the public to know that they don’t have to leave the kids at home. 

“We will have a kids’ area provided by Bluegrass Academy of Dance and an antique tractor show put on by the Purchase Area Antique Tractor Club,” he said.

The event takes place this weekend, March 22-23, at the CFSB Center in Murray from 4-8 p.m. on Friday and from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free. For a full list of exhibitors visit www.wkhgf.com.
