Re-Discover Oklahoma at the
Tulsa Home & Garden Show set for March 8-11
Tulsa, Okla. – Spring is in the air and it’s time to start creating your home improvement list. Oklahoma’s largest home and garden products trade show is back and the Home Builders Association of Greater Tulsa’s signature show is one that will help you re-discover your dream home! With nearly 500 home improvement exhibitors offering ideas, expert advice and the latest product innovations for your home or garden, the Greater Tulsa Home & Garden Show is the home improvement event of the year. Tulsa’s longest-running home and garden show of almost 70 years will kick off Thursday, March 8 through Sunday, March 11, at the River Spirit Expo at Expo Square. Presented by the Home Builders Association of Greater Tulsa and sponsored by Arvest Bank, the Tulsa Home & Garden Show offers a one-stop shop for all things home or garden, showcasing hundreds of ideas and the latest trends, as well as fun features for the whole family.
This year our theme is “Re-Discover Oklahoma” inspired to remind the community of the exciting things happening in our home state and town. Our show is the perfect place to explore your home improvement ideas, with over 350,000 square feet of exhibits for everything from the front door to the backyard. Attendees can discover the latest products, get inspired by exhibits and speak first-hand to experts, all under one roof! Plus, shoppers can take advantage of exhibitor deals and specials exclusive to the event.
Timber & Beam Solutions Home-Made Stage: Mark Bowe, host of DIY Network’s Barnwood Builders will be at the Timber & Beam Solutions Home-Made Stage with a passion for craftmanship to showcase some amazing DIY projects you can create with wood. Local vendors will also be showing tricks of the trade through special DIY projects throughout the Show.
Oklahoma Natural Gas Cooking with Gas Stage: The cooking stage is back with some amazing talent! Food Hacker Todd Wilbur has been deconstructing America’s most iconic brand-name foods to make the best original clone recipes for use at home. This year Todd Wilbur will be showing us how to make our very own Big Mac and Mrs.Fields’ Cookies with his copycat recipes. We will also have local favorite chefs showcasing their favorite recipes.
Floral Sales: Attendees can brighten up their homes and the lives of local children by purchasing bouquets and flowering plants, which will be sold on-site by Reasor’s. The HBA has partnered with Reasor’s to sell the plants to raise money for the Community Food Bank’s Food For Kids Program. Reasor’s will generously donate 100 percent of the proceeds from stem sales to the cause.
“Whether you are looking to restore or find something new, you can’t afford to miss the Greater Tulsa Home & Garden Show,” said Chris Hodges, Chairman of the 2018 Greater Tulsa Home & Garden Show. In addition to all of the great exhibits that have become a Tulsa Tradition, we are proud to be partnering again with the News on 6 and Reasor’s to help raise money for the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma’s Food For Kids program. Whether it is in the home, garden or community, this year’s Show will help attendees find inspiration for home improvement.”
