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.

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 .

  • 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

Comments Off on Half Price Admission: Great Southwest Home Remodeling Design Show

The Great Southwest Home Remodeling Design Show is coming up this weekend, August 28-29, 2010, with 250 booths offering ideas and products for home and garden. Here’s how you can get half price admission!

Vendors at the show cover a pretty broad sweep, offering remodeling ideas and landscaping tips, or (if you’re not looking for a complete overhaul) furnishings and home products from cookware and kitchens to window coverings, flooring, and lighting.

Regular admission is $8, but why spend that when you can print out a coupon for half price admission?

The Great Southwest Home Remodeling Design Show coupon gives two for one entry to two people ($8 total), or half price entry for one person ($4).  

Take a friend and one of you gets in free, or split the admission fee to save $4 each… whichever way you look at it, it leaves a little more in the kitty to spend on su casa!

Kids under 12 get free admission, and parking is free too. 

Great Southwest Home Remodeling Design Show takes place:

  • Saturday August 28, 10 am – 5 pm
  • Sunday August 29, 10 am – 4 pm
  • Where: Santa Ana Star Center, Rio Rancho
  • Price: $4 per person with the half price coupon. Otherwise $8 per person.

Santa Ana Star Center directions if you need them. It’s located at 3001 Civic Centre Circle Northeast, Rio Rancho.

Comments Off on $2 Off Admission Plus Free Trees: Albuquerque Home and Garden Show

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 offers over 275 exhibitors showing off the best services and products for living la vida Nueva Méxicana, plus they’ll have a bunch of seminars specific to southwest gardening. We’re especially interested in the one on vegetable gardening in the desert (Saturday at 3:00pm). Maybe it will help us get our victory garden on. Other seminars include:

  • Olla Irrigation
  • Landscape Ideas for Small Spaces
  • Maximize the Potential of Your Outdoor Living Space – Large or Small

Plus, Tree New Mexico is giving away 500 trees! Be one of the first 500 people to stop by their booth in Hall C, and you can walk away with your choice of an Arizona sycamore, laceback elm, or Austrian pine. Now that’s sure to enhance your landscape!

Of course, we don’t plan to pay full price to get in to this extravaganza — and neither should you. That’s why we went out and found this $2 off admission coupon at the AHGS website. You can use the coupon for $2 off each of 2 adult admissions, taking your cost to $5 per adult (age 13 and over). The coupon is not valid on the senior price of $5. Kids under age 12 are free.

The Albuquerque Home and Garden Show will be held Saturday, April 25, from 10:00am – 7:00pm, and Sunday, April 26, from 10:00am – 5:00pm at the Manuel Lujan Building at EXPO New Mexico. Enter from the San Pedro side, and expect to pay $4 for parking.

Maybe we’ll see you there!

We’re in love with our houses. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want to rip down walls, repaint, install bathroom spas, and overhaul our kitchens. Yes, remodeling is America’s obsession.

That’s why the Home Builders and Remodelers Showcase at EXPO New Mexico is the largest home show in New Mexico and one of the biggest such events in the entire southwest. Hundreds of exhibitors will be showing off the latest products and technologies for home building, remodeling, design, and decorating. Admission is $5 for adults, but we found a buy-one-get-one-free coupon. Kids 12 and under get in free!

The Home Builders and Remodelers Showcase takes place Saturday, March 28, from 10:00am to 6:00pm and Sunday, March 29, from 10:00am to 5:00pm at EXPO New Mexico (formerly the state fairgrounds). We’re guessing it’s in the Manuel Lujan Building, though the website doesn’t specify. Also note that a parking fee may apply.
