The 28th edition of The Times-Gazette’s Salt Homemakers Show will be held Thursday, April 28 at the Patriot Center at Southern State Community College.
Tickets are $7 each and are available now at the offices of The Times-Gazette, 108 Gov. Trimble Place, Hillsboro. Tickets usually go fast and a crowd of about 500 is typical for the show. All attendees must have a ticket.
Sharon Hughes, media sales director of The Times-Gazette, will once again emcee the show along with Leslie Ramsey of WVNU. The complete lineup of guest presenters will be announced soon.
As always, the event will also support the Highland County Homeless Shelter. Anyone bringing five cans of food will receive one door prize ticket. Bringing 10 cans of food will net three door prize tickets. More than a ton of food is usually collected for the shelter.
Doors will open at 4 p.m. and the show will begin at 6 p.m. The event usually features around 40 vendors, all giving away food, gifts or prizes throughout the evening. Around 100 total gifts or door prizes are awarded during most shows.
The program showcases local individuals showing off their culinary skills in a fun and informative presentation that often brings laughter through humor both planned and unplanned.
The show moved last year from the SSCC auditorium to the nearby Patriot Center, where access to vendors was more convenient and audience members could take their seats earlier than in previous years.
