It’s the same show, but with a different name.
The long-standing Winnipeg Home + Garden Show (formerly the Home Expressions Home + Garden Show) returns to the RBC Convention Centre April 1-3.
W Network’s Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot and HGTV’s Carson Arthur are the big draws for the 42nd annual show. More than 175 exhibitors will be under one roof, with innovation, inspiration and expert advice on all things home-related.
Organizers are so confident you’ll enjoy yourself they are promising to refund your cost of admission if the offerings fall short.
Also this year, 10 of Winnipeg’s best-known media, designers, and community influencers will be showing off their creativity during a silent auction of decorated garden gnomes, including Chris D. Guests can bid on their favourites to benefit Winnipeg Harvest.
Showtimes are April 1 from noon to 9 p.m., April 3 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and April 3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and children under 12 are admitted free. A $3 discount is applicable to tickets purchased online.
