Home & Leisure ShowPresented by Fergus Lions
The Fergus Lions Club is pleased to present the 44th Annual Fergus Lions Home and Leisure Show. Exhibitor participation in the show has helped the Club to provide a high level of support for many community and Lions projects in Fergus and Centre Wellington, to which we say, “Thank you!”
Our show costs have been increasing over the years and at this time we have had to make a rate change. The floor plan and other relevant information for the 2023 show can be found here.
The curtain colours are white/black, accented with red carpet. Accessories including tables, chairs, skirting, carpets, etc. are available from Hahn Rentals at firstname.lastname@example.org. We remind all exhibitors that curtains are the property of Hahn Rentals. The exhibitors will be held accountable and charged for any damage including tearing or puncturing.
To maintain the open concept of our show, exhibitors may not block the sight lines five feet from the front of their booth, without the expressed consent of their neighbour and the Home Show organizer.
We will be advertising the Home & Leisure Show throughout Wellington County by means of The Wellington Advertiser, Fergus Lions Website and our Lions Facebook page. The Wellington Advertiser will run a special section in the issue the week prior to the Show. Advertising rates are on the application form with copy deadline of March 30th.
For further information, contact committee members listed on the application form.
Yours in Service,
Fergus Lions Home and Leisure Show Committee

In the mid 1970’s, a recently formed Lions Club in Fergus made a major financial commitment towards the construction of a Sports Complex. In order to help fund this undertaking, the Club organized the first Home Show.
The Fergus Lions Home Show has grown in popularity year after year. The public enjoys our Free Admission. Our Show hours don’t interfere with your daytime business operations.
Being able to clear your exhibit after 9:30pm Friday night, means you have a Free Weekend.
Our Exhibitors benefifit from the Extensive Advertising we do to promote the Show on their behalf.
For 2023, we are again subsidizing exhibitor ads in our full colour tabloid to be distributed in the Wellington Advertisers distribution area in Wellington County.
