Suddenly it’s Spring!
SHOP THE REGION’S MOST TRUSTED MARKETPLACE – OVER 10 ACRES with EVERYTHING for your home! More than 1800 exhibits fill the Pittsburgh Convention Center downtown for the 37th annual Duquesne Light Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show, March 2-11.
John DeSantis, Executive Director of the Show, noted
“The largest home event in Pennsylvania gets even bigger and better. As homeowners from across the region have come to expect, the Home & Garden Show will present one-stop shopping – literally EVERYTHING for the home – gathered just once a year, in one place, at one time.”
With more than 10,000 products on display, along with the experts who know them best, homeowners find it easy to decide which is right for their needs. For just these ten days in March each year, the mammoth Pittsburgh Convention Center provides true comparison shopping - with ALL of the products and services side-by-side and available for up-close inspection. No matter what projects around the house are on this Spring’s list, the Show is where shoppers can actually see what they’re buying and compare prices without ever leaving the building. The Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show is where generations of tri-state families come to turn houses into homes.
