10th Anniversary Collin County Home & Garden Show!
Great couples event! Perfect family activity. Spend the weekend looking at what new in decks, pools, spas, entertainment systems, storage solutions under one roof.
For all of you gardening enthusiasts, you’ll have the opportunity to question a Master Gardener about creating your perfect Spring Garden in Plano.
Ask the Master Gardeners all your toughest questions because they are experts on our local soil, climate and native plants! Master Gardeners will be giving seminars on the Celebrity Stage throughout the weekend AND available to you at their “Ask The Expert” booth all weekend! They will also be providing soil sample bags and hosting a plant-a-seed activity for the kids.
The Master Gardener program in Collin County is an educational and volunteer program affiliated with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service of the Texas A&M University system.
Find out what’s hot in home remodeling for 2019 and how your garden grows in our hot Summer sun.
One of the hottest remodeling trends for 2019 is creative and decorative storage. When it comes to storing your wine bottles, Nancy Higgins at Wine Cellar Specialists says, “Why not utilize the space under a staircase or an unused pantry to carve out a refrigerated wine room? We find that these bold, unexpected glass showcase cellars delight your guests and beautifully show off your wine collection. Combining glass walls with metal racking and LED lighting with clear, frosted or etched glass comes off as the height of sophistication.”
While you’re day dreaming about your home and garden, you can also do a little shopping and tasting at the yummy treats are or from one of the many food trucks onsite!

And the food. Oh my word. All you have to do is just look at this Urban Bowl with its ancient grains, mixed greens, cucumbers, tear drop tomatoes, sweet potato, garbanzo beans, peppadew peppers & portobellos and your brain begins tasting it before you even lift a fork.

32 Degrees Ice Bar perched atop Urban Crust in Plano!
Fire and Ice! Urban Crust has fire down below to create their perfectly-crisp crust pizza and a rooftop ice bar above called “32 Degrees.” The third-floor ice bar is so named because the bartender pours the draft beers at a constant 32 degree temperature.
Liqueur taps pour Patron, Fireball, and a Craft On Draft Moscow Mule at -5 degrees. There's also a chilly strip of ice running the length of the bar where patrons can set their drinks to keep them cold.
What better place in Plano to watch the sunset and afterwards, catch some tunes courtesy of a DJ you know will be cool... it's an ice bar, after all.
