It’s February. Spring is so close yet feels far, especially with the piles of snow on the ground. Home Builders Association invites you to shake off those winter blues while making plans to refresh your home or yard at the Red River Valley Home & Garden Show Feb. 28 – March 1 at the Fargodome.
The 2020 show is unveiling fresh, new features designed to mix things up a bit and provide a welcoming atmosphere. Here are my personal top five favorites for this year’s show. Learn more about all of them at our brand new website:
1. Tap Into The Experts
Several exhibitors are offering surprises, experiences and innovation you won’t want to miss. Just one example is Accent Kitchen & Bath with on-the-spot free kitchen and bath design using 3-D software, so be sure to bring your room dimensions.
2. Fun For Kids
We’ve created a “Kids Corner” tailored for the little ones. Stop by to play games, color, build with Legos, take a selfie with Titan Machinery and learn about gardening through activities with the Fargo Public Library.
3. Playhouse Challenge
We invited middle schoolers to work in teams to tap into their imaginations for innovative designs and build models to be voted on by you! Cast your ballot for your favorite playhouse designed by kids, for kids!
They check all the boxes: gear up for a remodel with Accent Kitchen & Bath, plan grilling strategies with NDSU BBQ Boot Camp or learn to improve your yard with Don Kinzler, gardening columnist with The Forum. Plus, we’ve got sessions on smart homes and green homes too.
5. Beer Garden
It may be chilly outside, but inside the Fargodome we visualize a patio in summertime and enjoy a cold one, or two!
Back for another year is FREE parking on Friday, generously sponsored by Cass County Electric Cooperative. Children age 17 and younger are always free.
The Home & Garden Show is an experience for the whole family, saves you time by putting all the professionals in one place and provides valuable connections.
See you at the show!
