Metro Detroit’s first annual Home Expo Presented by Rehabbed & Ready will be held on Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Joe Dumars Fieldhouse (20601 Ralston Street) at the State Fairgrounds on 8 Mile Road. The event will bring the local home improvement and decor industry under one roof to connect with homeowners, building owners, and investors working to improve their houses.
However, that’s not all that’s going on at this home expo. The event will also be a place for small businesses, neighborhood organizations, and skilled tradesmen to connect with each other and homeowners.
More than 70 small business vendors with strong ties to the Metro Detroit area will be at the expo. There will also be several incubator graduates such as Building Hugger (Motor City Match), Glass Block Professionals (Goldman Sachs 10KSB), and Motor City Popcorn (Build Institute).
Part of the expo focuses on strengthening community ties and helping Detroiters find the resources to create healthy neighborhoods. To that end, homeowners will get the chance to connect with more than 20 community organizations, government agencies, and experts in an effort to enliven Detroit neighborhoods.
The expo will also include a skilled trades job fair to help relieve the shortage of skilled trade professionals in Southeast Michigan. Tradesmen looking for employment can meet local employers, unions, apprenticeships, and training programs.
Tickets to the event are $5 each, and they can be purchased here. Kids 12 and under have free admission.
