BAPA Home Expo

Connect With Experts on Home Improvement and Restoration

Since the 1970s, the Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) has been connecting area residents with local tradespeople when they need help maintaining and repairing their vintage homes. On Sun., Feb. 24, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the BAPA Home Expo will showcase professionals offering foundation-to-ceiling advice on everything from renovation to decorating. The event will be held at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St., and feature vendors, workshops and historic preservation resources.

“Every day we get calls from people looking for a reliable local business to hire for small and large jobs,” said BAPA Executive Director Susan Flood. “People trust BAPA and trust the businesses we recommend. The BAPA Home Expo will bring together people with questions about caring for their homes with experts in every aspect of home improvement.”

Audience admission to the BAPA Home Expo is free.
