Mark your calendars! The first annual Priority Lighting Builders Expo and Art Fair is happening Wednesday Feb. 8, 2017 from 4­­-7p.m. at The Art Place in Palm Desert. This special event will kick off with a ribbon cutting by The Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce at 4p.m. and feature live entertainment, building and construction exhibits, an art fair, and beer and food vendors. The best part about it? It’s free and fun for the whole family.

Whether you’re looking to build your dream home, redesign an old space, or just searching for an entertaining Wednesday night, the Builders Expo is an event you won’t want to miss. The Art Place will be packed with exhibitors from the building and design industries as well as local artists. Exhibitor booths will showcase live demonstrations, hand out samples, and share tips and tricks on home décor, construction, design and more. Find out how you can reduce your electric bill from lighting exhibitors or how to switch to a sustainable garden by visiting Moon Valley Nursery. From building materials, to fine art, flowers, fabrics, and high-end furniture, the Expo will feature everything necessary to design the perfect home or office.

“The response from the building and design community so far has been overwhelming,” said Jon Fitzhenry of Fitzwell Home. He added, “The Chamber of Commerce has been an immense support in attracting top professionals in the desert to attend the Expo.” The Art Place proudly announced last week that over 20 exhibitors and vendors have signed up for Wednesday’s event.


In addition to exclusive shopping, the Expo will also host live music and entertainment from Mark Gregg of legendary local band Dude Jones and DJ Bob Scratch of Craig Michaels Productions. While you’re walking through the Expo, you can grab a gourmet hotdog from Croomdogs or authentic Mexican tacos from Los Tios Tacos. La Quinta Brewing Co. will also be on site serving up ice-cold craft beer­s made locally. After an Indian Canyon IPA or two, bring your friends over to the photo booth hosted by Kaminsky Productions to pose with fun props­­ and share your experience on social media.

Ultimately, the Priority Lighting Builders Expo and Art Fair will be a diverse mixer perfect for Coachella Valley residents and business owners alike interested in the building and design industries. Bring the family down and enjoy this incredible, free event Wednesday, February 8th from 4p.m. to 7pm. Guests who arrive at 4p.m. for the Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting will have the chance to win exclusive early-bird raffle prizes.
