Garden show brings some green to the winter

December 10, 2013 by  

For those who are looking forward to getting their gardens in shape for summer and want some tips on the best way of doing it, the 31st annual Tacoma Home and Garden Show will be returning to the city for four days next month. It is the largest show of its type in Washington state.

The event is set to feature more than 750 exhibitors and offer free seminars in a variety of topics of interest to gardeners. Special guest Don Engebretson, known as ‘The Renegade Gardener’, will be speaking to the crowd. There will also be a green theater, a plant sale, and a vintage market expected to feature approximately 17 vendors who will be selling unique articles, some of them likely handmade, such as garden furniture and antique signs.

It is likely that visitors from all over the area will make a trip to the show, including some taking a short trip from Seattle. In order to advertise such occasions, organizers often invest in services such as flyer printing from local print companies. These can then be distributed either through direct mail or placed in local newspapers.

The Tacoma Home and Garden Show is taking place at the Tacoma Dome from January 23 to 26, beginning at 11:00 am each day. Admission is $12 for adults or free for children aged 16 and under, although attendees are advised that this does not include parking. Call 253-756-2121 or visit the event’s website for more information.
