Home Garden Flower (with Cannabis) Show

Fryeburg Fairgrounds
Fryeburg, Maine


Spring is in the air — finally — and that means the return of Home Garden Flower (with Cannabis) Show.

Now in its 19th year, the show will run May 17-19, and continues to add events and entertainment to complement the experience of attendees as it expects to feature 150 exhibitors.

The show will offer everything from tomato plants to perennials, from granite pavers to tractors, as well as CBD edibles and therapeutic oils. 

New this year are three days of live music featuring Jon Sarty and Ray Ryan on Friday, The Carolyn Ramsey Trio on Saturday and The Jonathan Sarty Band on Sunday.

In the Specialty Building, for the first time, full pours of beer and wine will be served, along with oysters.

Demand for oysters far outstripped the supply last year, but the shuckers from oyster-sponsors 302 West Smokehouse are bringing hundreds more.

“This is The Conway Daily Sun’s second year owning the show,” said Sun Associate Publisher and show producer Joyce Brothers, “and our goal by adding better beer and wine service and entertainment is to add more fun to the overall experience.”

Last year’s hit was the introduction of cannabis-related exhibitors. They will be back and will offer a variety of products for home use and cultivation, though most are medicinal-related.

CBD use has exploded this past year nationally, and products will be available to address stress, sleep disorders, arthritis and general aches and pains. 

A new activity for the whole family is free-to-play corn hole tournaments to be held daily noon-3 p.m., with prizes for winners of each round.

Meet the Chefs cooking demonstrations, a show favorite are returning, too. 

More information about exhibitors, food vendors, schedules and presenters will be available in the coming weeks and posted on the Home Show’s website at homegardenflowershow.com

Tickets are now available online for the discounted price of $8 and for the first time, one admission ticket for all three days of the show. 

“With the more food and beer and excellent entertainment, we really want to encourage people to come back for a second day,” said Brothers. “Buy something you thought about the day before, have a beer or glass or wine, and listen to some music — a great way to spend a mid-May weekend.”

The show's major sponsors are: Platinum, North Conway Olive Oil Company; Gold, Dirfy Generators and Silver, The Glass Cook.  Major product sponsors are: Pete's Restaurant Equipment, Think Kitchen and Lodge cookware. 

There’s still time for businesses to reserve a booth. Call Joyce at (603) 733-5805 or email joyce@conwaydailysun.com.

Author Luncheon with Abi Maxwell

Moat Mt. Smoke House & Brewing Co., North Conway, NH


Luncheon and author talk with Abi Maxwell, author of THE DEN.

Tickets for $20, which includes luncheon, author talk and donation to North Conway Library. Tickets can be purchased through the bookstore, call 603-356-3200, or North Conway Library, call 603-356-2961, by May 18.

We are excited to be hosting local author, Abi Maxwell, here to talk about her latest release, THE DEN.

A luminous, hypnotic story of youth, sex, and power that tells of two young women who find themselves ostracized from the same small New England community for the same reasons--though they are separated by 150 years.

Henrietta and Jane are fifteen and twelve, growing up in a farmhouse on the outskirts of town. Their mother is a painter, lost in her art, their father a cook who's raised them on magical tales about their land. When Henrietta becomes obsessed with a boy from town, Jane takes to trailing the young couple, spying on their trysts--until one night, Henrietta vanishes into the woods.

Elspeth and Claire are sisters separated by an ocean--Elspeth's pregnancy at seventeen meant she was quickly married and sent to America to avoid certain shame. But when she begins ingratiating herself to the town's wealthy mill owner, a series of wrenching and violent events unfold, culminating in her disappearance. As Jane and Claire search in their own times for their missing sisters, they each come across a strange story about a family that is transformed into coyotes. But what does this myth mean? Are their sisters dead, destroyed by men and lust? Or, are they alive and thriving beyond the watchful eyes of their same small town?

With echoes of The Scarlet Letter, Abi Maxwell gives us a transporting, layered tale of two women, living generations apart yet connected by place and longing, and condemned for the very same desires.

ABI MAXWELL is the author of Lake People. Her fiction has also appeared in McSweeney’s. She studied writing at the University of Montana and now lives in New Hampshire, where she grew up, with her husband and son.

Alton Weagle Day

Mt. Washington Auto Road 

1 Mount Washington Auto Road

Gorham NH 03581

 


Alton Weagle had a passion for Mt. Washington. To show his passion, he climbed the Mt. Washington Auto Road in a number of unique ways: by car, on foot, walking backwards, blindfolded and finally pushing a wheelbarrow full of sugar…just to name a few. This day honors his spirit and the spirit of all the camels, Segways and even the odd pogo sticks that have been the first up the mountain - think you’re up to it?
