New month, new location for South Minneapolis Housing and Home Improvement Fair


The South Minneapolis Housing Fair, usually held in March, will be held on Sat., Apr. 13 (10:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.). The event has also changed location. Usually held at South High School, it will now take place at the Minneapolis Sports Center (2121 E. Lake St.). Whether you are giving a room a “makeover,” or starting from the ground up, you’ll find answers to all of your questions at the 19th annual South Minneapolis Housing Fair. This event is free and open to the public.

The event, which draws approximately 2,000 people every year, offers attendees a chance to participate in educational workshops and visit with exhibitors. Workshops are taught by local professionals on home improvement, home security, renovation, decorating, and financing. Exhibitors include local contractors, financial institutions, real estate agents, neighborhood associations, and nonprofit and government agencies. There will be activities for children, hourly door prizes, and food for sale.
