Space Needle

Tacoma Home and Garden Show

Being the largest in the state, this flower show has been around for over 25 years and brings in over 1,000 vendors. Visitors are encouraged to mingle with these vendors, such as remodeling and homebuilding experts, and learn about their products and services. These experts specialize in categories like kitchen and bath, windows, flooring, and real estate to name a few.

Amongst the vendors, exhibits are on display for professional contractors, do-it-yourself (DIY) project people, and home gardening tips, such as the best plants and flowers for Tacoma. There are also areas to shop for products related to decorating, home building, gardening, and remodeling, as well as seminars on home and garden work, and other special attractions for attendees.

Come January, when the show is about to take place, lists of seminars, exhibits, special attractions, and the floor plan of the Tacoma Dome will be available online. This floor plan includes show information, as well as contact information. There will also be an opportunity to download a coupon to save on the shows entry ticket.

Northwest Flower and Garden Show

What started out as a hobby gardener’s idea in 1989 has now turned into 5 days, 6 acres, and over 300 exhibitors in one of the Northwest’s most prominent flower shows. Here, visitors can find creative inspiration on gardening and landscape designs, outdoor furniture ideas, and garden art in demonstrations like the Container Show, Funky Junk Show, and the Livin’ it Up Show.

If you’re looking for gardening advice, then this event is perfect for you. The Northwest Flower and Garden Show is famed for putting on the most horticulture seminars out of any other garden show around the world. These seminars are great for both the novice and veteran gardener who want to expand their horticulture knowledge, fix landscaping challenges, learn how to care for flowers in Seattle and surrounding areas, or to simply get ideas on developing their garden even more. Exhibits are also set up around the show for those who want to learn about and purchase new tools and accessories, buy new plants, taste foods, and shop for outdoor furniture and art.
