The Downtown Raleigh Home Show takes place September 5–67at the Raleigh Convention Center. Booths showcase tips on home improvement, remodeling, and design, as well as products from hundreds of exhibitors and presentations from appraisers and experts—including appearances by celebrities such as Ty Pennington of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition!. Seniors regularly get in for $5, and children aged 12 and younger are free.
The home shows produced by Marketplace Events connect homeowners and designers with trusted brands, independent businesses, innovators of new products, and local artisans. The vibrant and inspirational presentations showcase new aesthetic trends and functional designs in the realms of home decor, energy conservation, and living-space management. In addition to showcasing a range of products and concepts, the event hosts special-guest speakers, who educate audiences on home-remodeling projects from painting walls to adding a fourth dimension to a cramped kitchen.
