Make plans to get inspired and get motivated this year at the Great Big Home + Garden Show in Cleveland, Ohio. This show is packed with live demonstrations, international-themed gardens, 650 exhibitors, and cooking stage with celebrity cooks that will offer you the best tips and techniques for home improvement, gardening, cooking, and more!
I received tickets to facilitate this post.
The Great Big Home + Garden Show is on Saturday, Feb. 8 – Sunday, Feb. 16 at the Cleveland I-X Center.
The first place I always run to first is the Garden Showcase – it refreshes me and gives me hope that this Winter won’t last forever and that Spring is around the corner. I love snapping photos and talking to the designers and exhibitors about how I can incorporate my favorite elements in my gardens. I have been plans this Spring for landscaping, so I’ll be checking out the International-Themed gardens first and then again before we leave.
Here are a few of my favorite photos that I took at last year’s show for inspiration.
Local restaurants are even offering samples at these exotic gardens on special tasting events on Monday, Feb. 10 and Tuesday, Feb. 11 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Even if you just go to the The Great Big Home + Garden Show for the Garden Showcase, it is worth the trip! But, wait! There is more!
Another favorite is the Main Stage with Loretta Paganini Cooking Stage. Here, experts share the best in home improvement and cooking. There will even be quite a few celebrity appearances! Mark your calendars so you don’t miss your favorites! My husband and I can’t wait to hear what Frank Fritz, co-star of History Channel’s American Pickers has to say!
Celebrities you won’t want to miss also includes:
- Ahmed Hassan, host of DIY Network and HGTV’s Yard Crashers and Turf War, will be there
- Emily Ellyn from Food Network’s Next Food Network Star and Cupcake Wars, Emily Ellyn
- Matt Fox, co-host of HGTV’s Room by Room will be the Main STage emcee
Don’t leave your kids at home, there is plenty for them to see and do as well. My kids love exploring the gardens and homes they have set up. I’m sure they will LOVE the dream basement that will be fully constructed and on display. It is designed by Xtend Technologies and will be surrounded by colorful, low-maintenance landscaping created by Morton’s Landscaping.
Plus, The Home Depot will have a Kid’s Workshop with build your own projects like they offer weekly in-store. Kids can build something and even take home a cute, real orange workshop apron. You will have a difficult time getting your kids to come away from the Playground World’s KidsZone too! There will be some great high-quality playground equipment to check out as well as exciting giveaways for parents.
I can’t wait to see what Perrino Builders & Interiors has in store for us this year with their Idea Home that will be packed with inspiration for building, remodeling and decorating your own homes. Weaver Barns will have a Vacation Home on display with landscaping by Morton’s Landscaping.
Don’t forget that there will be more than 650 exhibitors on hand, most of which are local to Ohio! This is a great resource for anyone wanting to update their current home, do some remodeling or even build a brand new home! Our Total House Remodel project lives on, even though we’ve taken a break in the recent months from any serious renovations. Now that the holidays and birthdays are over in my family, I’m ready for some serious inspiration to kickstart out home remodeling again. The Great Big Home + Garden Show is just the place for such inspiration!
