For over two decades, the Austin Fall Home & Garden Show captivates visitors with expert builders and contractors, celebrity guests, exciting presentations and fun activities for the entire family. The Austin Convention Center is transformed into a vibrant, colorful home and garden paradise, with thousands of square feet of dazzling displays, interactive demos, and experts in virtually every area of home building, remodeling, landscaping, gardening and wildlife. There are beautiful furnishings, state-of-the-art kitchen, wall design and countertop displays, closet organization and storage, entertainment and technology, the latest in sinks, tubs, fixtures and even pools, spas and outdoor living areas. For the yard and garden, there are ‘outdoor living’ inspirations, with imaginative landscape displays, unique water features and a wide variety of plants and garden accessories to boost curb appeal. There will also be outdoor furniture, grills, spas and more. Special seminars this fall include everything for gardens including Central TX Gardens, Landscapes, Bees & Container Gardens. The Garden & Wildlife Stage will also host citrus expert Mani Skaria, education on bamboo and a lively show with Birds of Prey.
Whether it’s a small home improvement project or a complete renovation, guests can expect one-on-one time to consult with expert builders, contractors, remodelers, interior designers and landscapers among others. Some of the top professionals in the industry are available to offer invaluable advice and practical ‘how-tos’ on everything from common topics such as gutters, walls, and flooring, to home security, green living, media technology, and the latest on solar energy.
On the Austin American Statesman Fresh Ideas Stage, the Austin Fall Home & Garden Show is thrilled to host special celebrity guest Chris Lambton of DIY Network’s “Yard Crashers” and HGTV’s “Going Yard”. Chris takes the stage with an entertaining and insightful presentation on landscaping, trends and how to be sustainable in your own backyard; plus, share a behind the scenes look at your favorite crashes and how to create your own! The Fresh Ideas Stage will also host outdoor living experts of Diamondscape and KXAN’s David Yeomans weather seminars. Families can take advantage of fun interactive activities including the Kids Project Zone, movies, coloring, arts and crafts to educational fun with Thinkery’s nature sensory bin and collage making, and even the child ID program with fingerprinting by NY Life. For the shoppers, there is a unique Art, Gift and Gourmet Center with artisan foods and handcrafted gifts, GO TEXAN products and gourmet treats such as jams, dips, pasta and sweet treats.
