Home Show set for this weekend at Westerner

From landscaping to home renovations, the Red Deer Home Show has a lot to offer when it comes to anything home related.

The Red Deer Home Show is set to take over Westerner Park this weekend.

More than 250 exhibitors will be on hand for the show which will take place March 16-18th.

There is also a line-up of guest speakers that will take the stage in the show’s ‘Ask the Experts’ segments which will be showcased throughout the weekend.

Guest speakers include Carson Arthur, a landscape designer on Green Force on HGTV; Kim Lewis, a local interior designer from Carpet Colour Centre; Dave Turnbill, product development manager and sustainability director for Landmark Group of Builders and Jean-Guy Turcotte, an accredited mortgage professional with Dominion Lending Centres-Regional Mortgage Group.

Arthur started his television career as a behind-the-scenes prop coordinator for a national garden call-in show. Arthur turned an opportunity to host his own show into a landscape design staple. With international coverage, he has become a voice of environmentally friendly landscape design on a global scale. By addressing outdoor challenges with a keen sense of style and a passion for eco-consciousness, he continues to reinvent the definition of gardening.

Lewis will talk about tips and tricks to help homeowners get the very best out of their renovation dollars. She will also show some before and after photos showing how and where to focus efforts during a renovation. Lewis will briefly talk about colour psychology and encourages attendees to the sessions to bring photos of their homes for the question and answer period.

Turnbill will speak about the changes coming in the homebuilding and renovation industry. He will discuss the choices homeowners can make in their new or existing homes that will lessen the effect on the planet and possibly save a bit of money along the way.

Turcotte will speak about the Central Alberta home market analysis as well as first time buyer information and whether or not now is a good time to buy a home.

The Home Show will run March 16th from noon to 8 p.m., March 17th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and March 18th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors and children under 12 get in free.
