For starters, a lot more food.

The Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show started in 1982 with just 133 exhibits. Today it has  grown to hold more than 1,800 exhibits — with 200 of those being added new this year.

The 2019 show isn’t just about remodeling your kitchen or adding a deck –– it's also about fresh food.

This year, the show has paired with Western PA Farm to Table to host their 13th annual conference. The theme is “Eat Fresh, Buy Local,” and it will feature over 60 local food vendors and host speakers and demonstrations each day of the show.


Demonstrations will include tutorials on how to make mead, pickles, herbal tea, sauerkraut and kimchi. While you’re there, be sure to grab a Western PA Local Food Guide, created in partnership with Pittsburgh Magazine, which directs visitors to local farmers markets and offers recipes, articles, listings and more. You can download the guide here

Returning favorites this year also include home interior galleries where visitors can see the latest styles and trends in interior design and bring questions about their own home to a free consultation.

New this year to the Children’s Village, where kids can see live entertainment and participate in activities hosted by the Pittsburgh Zoo, the Carnegie Science Center, The Children’s Museum and many others, is a pop-up version of Randyland, the public art museum on the North Side. Kids and adults alike are invited to decorate a white picket fence or design birdhouses and flowers.

The Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show is running March 1-10 at The David L. Lawrence Convention Center. For more information on vendors, tickets and parking, visit the show’s website. Be sure to visit the Pittsburgh Magazine booth for a fun photo opportunity and for a chance to meet the staff behind the pages. While you’re there, pick up a $6 subscription and enter to win tickets to two of the year’s biggest parties, Best of the Burgh and Best Restaurants.
