Comments Off on ABQ Home and Remodeling Show: Free Admission Times

We all love our homes. But that doesn’t stop us wanting to rip down walls, redesign our kitchens, overhaul the bathroom, and install spas. Yes, remodeling is America’s obsession.

If you want to get some new ideas to give your own home a facelift, the Albuquerque Home and Remodeling Show is this weekend, January 17 and 18, 2015.

I’ve never been to this show so I don’t know what to expect of it, but I DO know that you can get in free if you go in the first hour each day. Visit the Albuquerque Home and Remodeling Show between 10 am and 11 am each day and admission is free.

After 11 am adult admission is $5. Kids aged under 12 get in free at all times. (Well, the poor little darlings have to get in free, don’t they? I’ve never known a child who actively enjoys going to home shows.)

The list of exhibitors includes all the things you’d expect to see at a home and remodeling show: bathrooms, kitchens,  sunrooms, landscaping, hot tubs and spas, windows and window coverings, floor coverings, home furnishings, and a lot more. You can talk with builders and contractors and find out about green and solar technologies too. It all happens at Expo New Mexico.

The January 2015 Albuquerque Home and Remodeling Shows runs on:

  • Saturday January 17 from 10 am to 5 pm
  • Sunday January 18 from 10 am to 4 pm
  • Admission is free before 11 am on both days

The Albuquerque Home and Remodeling Show is held in the Manuel Lujan Buildings at EXPO New Mexico, home of the New Mexico State Fairgrounds. If you drive there, the parking fee is $5.

Comments Off on ABQ Home Expo $2 Off Admission: August 23-24

The ABQ Home Expo returns for 2014 on the weekend of August 23 and 24, and you can get $2 off admission by buying tickets online in advance.

I’m pretty sure the ABQ Home Expo used to be called the ABQ Home and Lifestyle Expo way back in the dark ages. But whatever they choose to call it, we like to see discounted admission! So here’s the deal.

Get $2 off ABQ Home Expo adult admission at Expo New Mexico if you buy tickets online. That makes it $6 per ticket instead of $8 on the door. There’s no online discount for seniors’ and kids’ tickets for this show, but they cost less in the first place. Admission is $6 for seniors and kids.  Children aged 11 and under go free.

The August 2014 ABQ Home Expo runs on:

  • Saturday August 23 from 10 am to 5 pm
  • Sunday August 24 from 10 am to 4 pm.

I love these events because we get to see everything that’s new in home decor and improvements, kitchens, design trends, gadgets, products, and more. For the very first time, the Expo will feature a Local Artisan’s Market.

The ABQ Home Expo is held in the Manuel Lujan Buildings at EXPO New Mexico, home of the New Mexico State Fairgrounds. If you drive there, the parking fee is $5.

The ABQ Home Expo returns for 2013 on the weekend of August 24 and 25, and you can get $2 off admission by buying tickets online in advance.

I’m pretty sure the ABQ Home Expo used to be called the ABQ Home and Lifestyle Expo way back in the dark ages. But whatever they choose to call it, we like to see discounted admission! So here’s the deal.

Get $2 off ABQ Home Expo adult admission at Expo New Mexico if you buy tickets online. That makes it $6 per ticket instead of $8 on the door. This is actually cheaper than the ticket price last year when it was $10/$9. So maybe that higher price admission didn’t work out so well for them. There’s no online discount for seniors’ and kids’ tickets for this show, but they cost less in the first place. Admission is $5 for seniors and kids.  Children aged 11 and under go free.

Ultimate Home Showcase Discount or Free Admission

March 14, 2012 by

Comments Off on Ultimate Home Showcase Discount or Free Admission

Albuquerque’s 2012 Ultimate Home Showcase takes place on March 17-18, with several ways to get discount admission or maybe even free admission!

The Ultimate Home Showcase home show at Expo New Mexico on March 17-18, 2012, includes the International Green Ideas Show and the Construction and Architectural Suppliers Show, with exhibitors showing ideas for home design and decor, remodeling, sustainable lifestyle and energy, and green technology.

Regular admission to the show is $8 for adults, $5 for seniors over 65 and kids aged 13-18. Admission is free for children aged 12 and under.  But here’s how to get discount or even free admission:

  • Print this BOGO coupon to get two admissions for the price of one, via New Mexico Market Place (or just pick up a copy of NM Market Place to get the coupon!)
  • Get $3 off adult admission using the coupon at the Ultimate Home Showcase website, or here’s the direct link to the PDF $3 off coupon.
  • Free admission for seniors on Sunday morning (no coupon needed).
  • Free admission for bike riders and for those who take the bus and show a receipt or pass.
  • Pay $1 for admission if you take a computer for recycling.

The show has a bit of a St. Patrick’s Day theme going for kids, with a visit by the leprechaun Sir Hugh Elliott (sounds like a very leprechauny name) on Saturday March 17 from 10 am to 3 pm, when he’ll be telling stories and giving out chocolate coins. Anyone dressed as a leprechaun or other nature spirit or sporting a British Isle theme costume can get a professional free photo taken!

Other fun activities include a scavenger hunt, hydrogen-powered car races, a PNM giveaway of compact florescent light bulbs, and a lasso demonstration.

Stephanie Kaylan of Wanagi Wolf Fund and Rescue will also be at the show on Sunday March 18 from 10 am to 4 pm with a couple of her wolves.

Ultimate Home Showcase takes place:

  • When:  March 17-18, 2012
  • Time:  Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 10 am – 4 pm
  • Where: Expo New Mexico, Manuel Lujan Buildings A and B.

The Expo New Mexico parking fee is usually $5. I believe the Ultimate Home Showcase used to be called the Albuquerque’s Home Builders & Remodelers Showcase; all these home shows seem to be changing their names this year!
