The 30th annual Home and Garden Show is making its way back to the Bryce Jordan Center, starting at 3 p.m. Friday and running through the weekend.

Hosted by the Builders Association of Central Pennsylvania and sponsored by Pennwood Home & Hearth, the home show includes 127 vendors.

“The whole purpose is to make it convenient for consumers in the area to come and think about their dream home and find people who can create it for them,” said Abbie Jensen, the home show’s executive officer. “It’s a one-stop shop.”

The home show has added “garden” to its name, and it will include additional seminars and services, as well as a Centre Park on the arena floor that includes life-size outdoor-living amenities, Jensen said.

On the concourse level of the Jordan Center, Jensen said, the show will include an art section.

“We think adding art to the home is just another new aspect we wanted to include, because it makes a home personalized,” Jensen said.

The builders association partnered with the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania for the gallery space.
