Home and Garden Show Awards
The 55th annual Carolina Classic Home & Garden Show was held May 21 - 23, 2021. The show is put on by the Building Industry Association of Central SC (BIA) and presented by Plumbing Solutions, LLC. Normally held in March, the show was moved back to May due to the ongoing pandemic. Although many restrictions were dropped or loosened by show time, it did affect the number of exhibitors and attendees this year. However, the show brought one hundred exhibitors in all areas of home building, remodeling, decorating and landscaping to the SC State Fairgrounds where attendees could ask questions, learn about the latest technologies and do some shopping.
 
The Home Show Chairman, Bill Earle of Great Southern Homes, and other Home Show Committee members walked the show after all of the displays were set up and gave an award to what they felt met the criteria for best display in each building, outdoor areas and for the overall show. Exhibitors in the Home & Garden Show put together some very impressive displays, so this is no easy task. Here are the winners of the 55th Carolina Classic Home & Garden Show Booth Awards:
