CHARLOTTE – The Southern Spring Home & Garden Show will return this month to show off the latest trends and products in home improvement, remodeling, outdoor living and gardening.
The show will feature a fresh look that celebrates the best of Southern traditions while introducing innovative ideas for indoor and outdoor spaces. Attendees will mingle with celebrities and receive advice on home decorating, renovating and landscaping.
At the Main Stage, guests will hear presentations from home and garden experts such as Ty Pennington, the carpenter on the home improvement series “Trading Spaces” on TLC and former host of the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC; Matt Fox, who hosted “Room by Room” on HGTV; Julia Collin Davidson, co-host of the popular cooking show “America’s Test Kitchen” on PBS; and Laura LeBoutillier of Garden Answer, the hit YouTube gardening vlog.
Visitors will be invited to tour the Belgard Gardens, which will feature a theme of “Inspired by HGTV.” Each garden will have a photo of its HGTV inspiration displayed out front, and the show will include a Farmhouse Feature Garden inspired by an episode of the popular show “Fixer Upper,” complete with a potting shed, chicken coop and chunnel.
The show will be held 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays, Feb. 22 to 24 and March 1 to 3 at the Park Expo and Conference Center. On-site parking costs $8. A concession area will feature a selection of snacks and drinks.
Tickets for adults cost $12 at the door and $10 online. Tickets for children 12 and younger are free.
Guests can get a sneak peek at the show during a special preview night from 7 to 9 p.m. Feb. 21. Attendees will enjoy free parking, prize drawings and complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks. The event benefits The Sandbox, a nonprofit that supports the families of children with cancer, life-altering or terminal illnesses.
