The Great Big Home and Garden Expo debuted in 2010 at the I-X Center in Cleveland. The nine-day show features celebrity appearances, garden displays, model homes, and home improvement and gardening vendors. It's a little taste of spring in the heart of the north coast winter season. The 2016 dates are February 5-14.

The Gardens:

The Great Big Home and Garden Expo features more than a dozen showcase gardens, created by local landscape designers.

This year's garden themes include everything from Mardi Gras to Mothers Day to welcoming of returning troops.


Celebrity guests appearing at the 2016 Big Home and Garden Expo include Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak from HGTV's "Two Chicks and a Hammer," the Beekman Boys from the Cooking Channel and the DIY network's Jason Cameron.


A number of the vendors at the show are giving away prizes. Items being raffled include a home makeover and a day with Kathy Ireland, a whole home security system and $1,000 of custom cabinetry. Visit the event website for details.
