The 2019 Philly Home + Garden Show serves the suburban counties of Philadelphia. It opens this Friday, February 15 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks and runs for three days only, through Sunday, Feb. 17
“City dwellers appreciate the urban living focus of the Philly Home Show, while suburbanites are inspired by the expanded yard and garden features of the Philly Home + Garden Show,” said Jenna Naffin, Show Manager for both the Philly Home Show and the Philly Home + Garden Show. “Throughout the year, we work to bring in new ideas and products that each show’s audience will find most useful and inspirational, along with the experts whose experience and advice will really resonate with them.”
This year, the Philly Home Show will feature celebrity appearances from Clint Harp, the woodloving carpenter from HGTV’s Fixer Upper and his own DIY Network show, Wood Work, and contractor Matt Blashaw, known from such HGTV and DIY Network shows as Yard Crashers, Vacation House for Free, Blog Cabin, and Ellen’s Design Challenge, among others. Among other helpful features, space-saving design solutions for small interiors and backyards will be showcased.
