A home’s garden expresses a great deal about its inhabitants, from the tulips lining the driveway to the man-eating Venus flytrap on the porch.

A sprawling showcase of innovative new products and resources, the Calgary Home + Garden Show bestows domicile-centric inspiration upon guests through a variety of activities including presentations by celebrity guest speakers and a vast shopping area. Visitors wend in and out of the displays of more than 600 exhibitors, stopping in at booths dedicated to multifarious products and home-improvement services including lighting, cleaning products, and blanket-fort construction. When hunger pangs strike, six food trucks will be set up to sate gastronomical needs. From atop the State Farm Main Stage, a lineup of design gurus—including Bryan Baeumler of HGTV’s Disaster DIY and Chef Corbin Tomaszeski from the Food Network’s Dinner Party Wars—imparts their substantial wisdom upon audiences during talks full of helpful tips and pointers. The Golden Acre Garden Stage overflows with a host of interactive seminars relating to green-thumbed endeavors, from the art of planting perennials to the best way to keep garden gnomes from eating the petunias. Nascent DIYers can seek aesthetic advice from one of the province’s top designers during a free 10-minute consultation at the Ask a Decorator station, and an artfully styled on-site lounge grants weary feet a place to recharge.
