Based on the popularity of HGTV, sites like Houzz.com and what I see on Facebook and Pinterest, it seems like just about everyone enjoys seeing beautiful homes and gardens and getting ideas and inspiration. The Southern Spring Home and Garden Show is a GREAT opportunity for us Lake Norman area residents to do this in person. I know it requires driving, parking and walking but seriously it is well worth it! They have an amazing array of lectures, demonstrations, displays and vendors/experts who you can chat with about your own thoughts and project ideas. And yes, there is shopping and eating too!
The Southern Spring Home & Garden Show returns to its roots in 2015 with a theme saluting the best of the Carolinas.From the mountains to the coast. Musicians to Philanthropists. BarBQ to Moon Pie and Pepsi. Forest lands to Financial Centers. Dogwoodsand Daydreamers. We’ve got it all … and it will all be brought into beautiful focus by hundreds of talented men and women who love calling Carolina home.So, answer the call and make plans to drink it all in.To make it even easier we’ve expanded the show to TWO WEEKENDS. It’s Spring times two.
Fri-Sat-Sun; February 20-21-22, AND Fri-Sat-Sun; February 27-28 March 1.
Location: The Park Expo and Conference Center in Charlotte
