Ideas, vendors and prizes at Tacoma Home and Garden Show

The 34th annual Tacoma Home and Garden Show will feature garden design ideas, more than 500 exhibitors, the Vintage Market, and around-the-clock “how-to” seminars Jan. 26-29 at the Tacoma Dome.

The show is billed as the state’s largest combined event for products and services for the home and garden, along with plenty of experts on hand.

Showgoers can also enter to win prizes which include garden tools, lawnmowers, and the grand prize — a $1,000 shopping spree at the show.

New this year, attendees can walk the show with a glass of wine or beer from a bar featuring local microbrews and wines.

There is a “Tiny House revolution” going on, and great examples of it will be spotlighted at the show by Carriage Houses Northwest, a show spokesman said. The Shoreline-based company will display two of its six models — the Northwest Cedar Bungalow and the Big Little Barn. These tiny custom homes and cottages can be used for vacation homes, Airbnb rentals, home offices, art studios and mother-in-law cottages.

Show hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 26-28 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Jan. 29. Admission is $12 for adults and free for children 16 and under. Weekday discount coupons are available online at Parking is free every day of the show in the Tacoma Dome parking lots.
