Missouri’s Largest Home Product Marketplace is Coming Downtown

Whether you’ve caught the remodeling bug or are simply interested in refreshing or redecorating your space in the New Year, Downtown’s upcoming Home & Garden Show is a must-see event.

Held Thursday, March 7, through Sunday, March 10, the 42nd annual Builders St. Louis Home & Garden Show at America’s Center is the largest home product marketplace in the state. The event brings nearly 400 vendors across more than 1,400 booths to one location.

What’s There to See?

This consumer event is focused around six major categories: Lawn & Garden, Kitchen & Bath, Interior Design, Pool & Spa, New Construction and Home Products. Compare prices, learn about new products and even shop items like doors, windows, pools, lighting, furniture and more. Attendees can also explore the Top 10 Life-Changing Products display, which includes a one-switch smart home system and anti-theft smart mailbox to deter porch pirates.

Not looking to buy? The Home & Garden show also features seminars, including one from gardening author and tomato expert Craig LeHoullier. This demonstration on small-space container gardening is perfect for bringing fresh produce to your loft or small city yard. Other gardening topics, including rose growing and a discussion on incorporating native plants, will be presented across the weekend.

Prizes Galore

You know it wouldn’t be an expo without some serious prizes. Throughout the event, a $5,000-plus outdoor brick oven, two swing sets and one $500 shopping spree will be given away. What’s more, six attendees will win $2,500 to go toward closing costs on a new home.

Remember to wear your lucky socks!

Adult tickets to the Home & Garden Show are $10. Buy online early for $8 adult tickets and a free year of Better Homes and Gardens magazine, or find event ticket coupons at Schnucks.
