The St. Louis Builders Home & Garden Show is Your Source for Everything You Need for Your Home
The St. Louis 35th Annual Builders Home & Garden Show is Feb. 23-26 at America’s Center & Edward Jones Dome. The Home & Garden Show is the place to see, learn about and buy the latest home products and services from companies you can trust.
The Builders Home & Garden Show is actually six shows in one, showcasing the latest in Lawn & Garden, Kitchen & Bath, Interior Design, Pool & Spa, Building Products and Green Products. More than 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.
Think spring as you stroll through beautiful landscapes filled with fabulous flowers, water features and the newest ideas for your garden. The theme this year is Gardens of the World, with five fantastic feature gardens that get their inspiration from far-off settings like France, Italy and Japan, and ones a little closer to home like the Smoky Mountains and Canada.
