Sequim: Thousands attend annual building exposition

SEQUIM — It started with humble beginnings six years ago at Sequim Middle School.

Today, the annual Building & Remodeling Expo has more than doubled its number of exhibitors and vendors.

The two-day event that now packs two rooms at Sequim High School gymnasium, has everything homeowners — or those dreaming of home ownership — need to build or remodel it.

This year, the event welcomed exhibitors from as far away as Port Townsend and Forks.

Clair Kirkman, executive officer for the North Peninsula Building Association — the expo presenter — said the event this year drew between 3,500 and 4,000 people on Saturday and 3,000 to 3,500 attendees Sunday.

This year, the event showcased 70 exhibitors and 60 booths, an increase of about 10 over last year.

“It was a real madhouse in here yesterday,” Mark Smith, building association president, said Sunday as he greeted visitors at the door.
