Collin Co. Home and Garden Show

Best Restaurants in Plano - Community Event - Collin County Home & Garden Show 2019


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!

Plano Balloon Festival executive director, Jo Via says of the Balloon Glow, “Balloons inflate and light themselves from within. The sight of hot air balloons lit up like giant light bulbs is breathtaking. Pilots will coordinate ‘all burns’ where they fire up their burners illuminating their balloons all at once and also perform ‘count downs’ which are very crowd participatory events. A Glow is a MUST SEE at our festival!”
