The YCCA Home and Garden Show has a wide variety of exhibits with merchandise, product demonstrations, and interior and exterior vignettes. With a combination of new products and expert advice from the pros, the YCCA Home and Garden Show inspires homeowners with countless ideas on enhancing their home’s comfort and functionality, as well as its aesthetic appeal and overall value.

At our home show we strive to provide consumers with an innovative marketplace where they can shop with confidence, compare prices, find the latest in technology and one-of-a-kind items, and get inspired to create their dream homes.

“We expect this will be the best show we ever had,” said Sandy Griffis, Executive Director of YCCA. “Our home show is a great place to pick up knowledge and meet people you need to get the job done.” We love bringing the community together with our local industry partners.”

As Yavapai County grows, the importance of the Yavapai County Contractors Association becomes even more prevalent. We take our responsibility very seriously. Our contractors are licensed, reputable companies and we refer gladly.

Please call our office at 928-778-0040 with any questions.

The mission of the Yavapai County Contractors Association is: to properly manager a construction industry association that transfers and promotes education, safety, political action, services and networking for the benefit of its members and the communities of Yavapai County.
