The Southern Spring Home & Garden Show launches its 54th consecutive season in Charlotte on Friday with more than 220,000 square feet of exhibition space showcasing hundreds of ideas for gardeners and those looking for home improvement and remodeling inspiration.

For the first time, the show will be presented over two consecutive weekends. First weekend show visitors are eligible for a discount to the show’s second weekend.

New features this year include the Highway to Health Pavilion sponsored by the nonprofit health education organization, HealthCare.org – the Dr. Oz Foundation. The pavilion allows visitors to explore healthy lifestyle choices, learn about fitness and nutrition from experts and participate in seminars.

This year also sees the debut of the Ultimate School Garden, an 18-station garden with learning opportunities for teachers, students and parents.

Those in search of home remodeling, decorating and renovation ideas will have the opportunity to meet with hundreds of exhibitors displaying all manner of windows, flooring, tile, kitchen, bath, cabinetry, appliances and more.

“All our exhibitions will focus on better living – living more sustainably, cooking more creatively and locally and designing your home for its highest efficiency,” said Mardee Woodward, the show’s executive director. “Our three main stages have virtually nonstop programming that includes healthy cooking demonstrations, gardening tips and tricks and information on how to incorporate sustainability into your everyday life.”
