The Edmonton Fall Home Show comes at a time when the leaves are turning and we’re warming ourselves in front of a cozy fire with loved ones. It’s ‘that’ time, when we want to refresh and renew our living space. There’s so much to enjoy at this year’s show! The Urban Barn Main Stage will be a riot, with television stars Colin & Justin and their witty home-style commentary; host of the international hit show ‘Love It or List It’ Todd Talbot and his ideas on smart investments in real estate, and DIY and Lifestyle Expert Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault and the ‘frugalista’ budget.
Helen Youn, the first and only Certified KonMari Consultant in the Prairies, will be decluttering our homes and minds. And when it’s all over, if we’ve witnessed the talk by Neil Harding from Sleep Country, we’ll all get a good night’s sleep! From celebrating the best of local culinary talent and the art of food at our Cooking Stage, talking to top designers about your style and design inspirations and how to have it all, to enjoying a break in the Fall Fest Food Truck Alley - it’s the place to be this Fall if you’re looking to fall back in love with your home. We can’t wait to see you there!
