Join Radiate Live for the largest home and recreation expo on the Western Slope April 25th – 27th. The Western Slope Home & Recreation Expo will be expanding for 2014 to include recreation that is a perfect fit for the mountain lifestyle. Attendees will still be able to find everything needed for home remodeling, additions, new home buying and more. But this year, they can also shop RVs, campers, 4-wheelers and outdoor equipment. In addition, every attendee will get the chance to enter to win our incredible sponsor giveaways!
Anyone interested in building, remodeling, decorating, gardening, improving energy efficiency, and simple upkeep of their current home should attend this newly expanded event. Plus, anyone interested in recreational activities in Colorado will love the new expo additions! There will be a suggested donation of $5 per person upon entry to the show. Proceeds from the door will be donated to a local non profit.
The show will be held at the 55,000 square foot indoor Eagle River Center at the Eagle Fairgrounds, with plenty of free parking. The Eagle River Center is the largest exhibition center on the Western Slope and is a central location for anyone from Summit County to Pitkin County and everywhere in between!
