Northern California’s premier home and garden show is back this winter with an extravagant three-day event at the Sacramento Convention Center. The best retailers, chefs, vintners and designers are all converging under one roof for easy shopping and entertainment for consumers. The show highlights the latest products and services in the home and garden improvement industry, with special attention paid to kitchen, bathroom, garden and landscaping projects. Walking through the exhibitors booths is like walking through the top floor of an IKEA (always fun), minus the Scandinavian design. The show will also have a live cooking stage, wine tasting classes and wine tastings from 10 local wineries, and a wine vintners sale. Visitors can also browse through the Artist Pavilion, where artists will be providing demonstrations, exhibits, and art sales, or the Ultimate Outdoor Man Cave. Kids are allowed in for free, and might enjoy running through the exhibits of fun and different homes and gardens, so bring the whole family.
