The Ultimate Guide to the Calgary Fall Home Show
Before you go:
First things first:
Once you arrive at the Show, our advice is to take a look at the line-up for the HGTV CanadaMain Stage presented by the Calgary Herald designed by Neelam Interiors. With Canada’s favourite handyman Bryan Baeumler hitting the stage you’ll want to make sure you get your seat early! You can also find all the top local home and design experts sharing their advice to help you revamp your space this season.
Get a crash course in creating the ultimate pad at presentations from KonMari expert Helen Youn, Kathy Yuen, principal of Phase One Design, designer Jamie Banfield of Jamie Banfield Design and Dayle Sheehan of Dayle Sheehan Interior Design.
Insider tip: Be sure to stick around after each presentation for your chance to take a picture and chat with the presenters at their selfie sessions directly after their presentations.
Saturday, September 21 at 1:00 p.m.
Take in the home inspiration:
After you check out the HGTV Canada Main Stage, we suggest you step into the Small Space – Maximum Style feature, designed by WW Design Studio. After just one look, you’ll be one step closer to living large, no matter the size of your home. Explore this beautifully designed 800 square foot space, which will show you that size doesn’t matter, and small space living doesn’t need to cramp your style. You’ll also find products from The Apothecary in Inglewood that promote the zero-waste lifestyle you’ve been working towards. After you are done browsing through the eco-friendly solutions in this feature, head over to the TELUS space and explore their brand new Superiority Hubs - they’re a family-friendly experience as much as they are a comprehensive display of TELUS' ever-evolving product suite.
Get in on the local love:
Reignite your love for all things local as you experience hundreds of local brands and businesses. Say hello to the exhibitors as you find great deals, and chat with the experts. You’re sure to walk away with new ideas, inspiration and most likely meet someone who can help with your home renovation needs, who is close to home.
Once you’ve met with some of your favourite exhibitors, take a walk through Avenue Magazine’s Made in Alberta Awards Showcase. In this new show feature, see the finalists in Avenue’s first-ever Made in Alberta Awards furnishings and home décor category. All the items showcased are made in the province, by Albertans. You’ll be able to see up-and-coming artisan makers and some of the top locally made products for your home.
There’s also room for you to get creative at the show with Outside the Shape. Shop from their beautifully curated boutique space and take in all of the locally crafted home goods, beauty products and more. Who doesn't love local?
Where: Avenue’s Made in Alberta Awards Showcase, booth #131 + Outside the Shape, booth #839
Eat, drink & kick back:
Come forth and discover the Kim Crawford Experience presented by Kim Crawford Wines. In this gorgeous curated space designed by Canadian designer Amanda Aerin (you might remember her from last years show), experience the flavour, texture, aroma, and essence of each wine, brought to life by design. And of course grab a sample of wine while you explore this truly sensory experience.
By this point you’ll probably be ready for a bite to eat. Stop by our Food Truck Eatery and you’ll be sure to find your favourite Calgary eats on wheels, like Wilk’s Booth, Shogun Teppanyaki, Savino Pizzeria and Happy Fish!
Where: Kim Crawford Experience, located near the Main Stage + Food Truck Eatery, at the South entrance of the BMO Centre
