BREAKING NEWS! The Fort Wayne Home and Garden Show has graciously provided two free tickets to the show! If you'd like to be in the drawing for the tickets, just let me know in your comment to this post. I'll draw a winner on Sunday night at 10:00 p.m. EST.
After a winter where all I could do was dream about tulips and daffodils, now I will see them in displays, knowing it's only a matter of weeks before they'll be pushing their way through the soil in my own gardens.
Our local TV and radio stations are full of ads for the Fort Wayne Home and Garden Show, which begins next week (February 25-28). This show is always the first in our area and officially kicks off the gardening season for me. Others soon follow and before you know it, the red-winged blackbirds are singing and spring has arrived.
The Fort Wayne Home and Garden Show is in its 37th year and will feature over 650 exhibitors in what is the largest show of its kind in the tri-state area (Indiana/Ohio/Michigan). Held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum (map and directions), you can buy tickets in one of two ways:
- Online, where you'll get a discount on the cost of your ticket as well as a free one-year subscription to Better Homes and Gardens magazine (a $6 value). You'll pay for and print out your admission tickets before you go. ($7.50 for ages 16 and older; seniors are $6.50; ages 15 and under are free with a paid adult admission)
- At the door, where admission costs $10. A $3 discount coupon can be printed here.
