The 16th Annual Builders St. Charles Home Show is April 9-11 at St. Charles Convention Center, with free admission and parking.
Local companies will have experts offering home improvement knowledge and advice.
The show’s producer, the Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri, said safety of show attendees and exhibitors is top of mind. Additional cleaning measures will be implemented and changes to the layout have been made to accommodate the way people enter and walk the show, including one-way traffic. Face coverings are required by the facility.
The show will feature what people need for their homes, inside and out, including kitchen and bath designs and fixtures, flooring, furniture, window treatments, decks, fencing, windows, siding, doors, landscaping, hardscape materials and so much more.
Laurie Smith, designer, author and “Trading Spaces” alum will take attendees on a photographic journey of two home renovations, with design lessons ranging from understanding the bones of your home to determining furniture layout and finding your personal style. She will also present a seminar about room refreshes – enhancing spaces in the home to create a welcoming atmosphere.
The 14th Annual St. Charles Sausage Festival & Wine Tasting will offer free tastings from sausage producers and wineries, many of them from Missouri. Show visitors can also purchase items to take home. Davis Meat Processing will offer samples of tasty summer sausages and bratwursts, plus various smoked and cured products. Attendees can taste a variety of wines from Small Batch Winery and Stone Hill Winery. Plus, there will be gourmet wine slushies from Nectar of the Vine.
A Spa & Swim Spa Blowout Sale, sponsored by Spas and More, is planned in a 2,700-square-foot tent, accessible from just outside the main show entrance in the south parking lot.
