Nearly 500 exhibitors in 1,800 booths fill nearly 400,000 square feet and provide consumers with an excellent buying opportunity, competitive pricing and side-by-side comparison between companies.
Welcome spring as you stroll through six beautiful feature gardens filled with fabulous flowers, water features and the newest ideas for your garden. And don’t miss the centerpiece of the feature garden area – the Amazing Living Fountain! This mesmerizing entertainment experience returns to the Show to captivate visitors.
