The 35th annual Rockford Home Show—which runs Friday, February 27, to Sunday, March 1—allows home improvers to gather ideas for design projects both inside and outside their residences. The show features exhibits and how-to clinics, including tips for remodeling kitchens, landscaping a breathtaking garden, or building a relaxing porch and barbecue space. Kids can join the fun for free by romping in the bounce house, feeding the butterflies in the Butterfly House, and attending a kid's building project clinic.
The home expo returns in 2015 to the spacious Indoor Sports Center, a 60,000-square-foot complex where visitors have plenty of room to walk past rows and rows of exhibition booths. Convention guests refuel with burgers and other casual bites while watching the action below from the second-floor Skybox Restaurant and sports bar.
