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.

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.

Ultimate Home Showcase Discount or Free Admission

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!

Comments Off on Albuquerque Home and Garden Show: $2 Off

It’s spring, and a young man’s fancy turns lightly to thoughts of home improvement.  Hence, the spate of home and garden shows at this time of year. And, frankly, we love them all!

The Albuquerque Home and Garden Show on April 16 to 17 is home (ha ha!) to over 250 exhibitors showing off services and products for living la vida Nueva Méxicana, plus they’ll have a bunch of giveaway prize packages, and gardening seminars and workshops. 

The theme for 2011 is Growing the Outdoor Classroom, so they have quite a lot geared toward kids. Events include:

  • Miracle of the Moringa Tree at 11 am – storytelling for children (with props, they say!) and release of the new children’s book .
  • Children and families plant a container garden (12 noon)
  • Gardening as Therapy workshops for children, senior citizens, and individuals with special needs
  • And more…

Regular admission is $7 for adults, but of course, we don’t plan to pay full price to get in to this extravaganza — and neither should you.

That’s why we found this $2 off admission coupon at the AHGS website. Use the coupon for $2 off each of 2 adult admissions, taking your cost to $5 per adult (age 13 and over).

It’s free admission for kids aged 12 and under, and note that the coupon is not valid on the senior admission price of $5

The Albuquerque Home and Garden Show 2011 at  EXPO New Mexico will be held:

  • Saturday, April 16, from 10 am – 6 pm
  • Sunday, April 17, from 10 am – 5 pm

The location is EXPO New Mexico,  at the Manuel  Lujan Building. Enter from the San Pedro side, and expect to pay $4 for parking.
