Today, Sunday is the last day! The Colorado Garden & Home Show brightens the Colorado winter with 11 inspiring and beautifully landscaped gardens (not to mention 10,000+ blooming flowers) and sparks homeowners’ ideas for remodeling, building and redecorating. More than 600 exhibitors fill the Colorado Convention Center presenting new technologies and trends in landscaping, gardening and home improvement on Saturday, February 9 through Sunday, February 17.

As always, highlight of the show is the Entry Garden, this year created by Great Outdoors Colorado. As part of their Generation Wild initiative, the entry garden will feature 34 of the items from Generation Wild’s list of ‘100 things to do before you’re 12.’
GOCO’s Generation Wild initiative encourages kids and families to spend more time outside. Some of those 34 items include roll down a hill, play in a treehouse, swing on a rope swing, and read a book under a tree. This year marks the first time the Colorado Garden & Home Show’s entry garden is 100 percent interactive, and attendees of all ages are invited to participate.
Upon entry, visitors of the Colorado Garden & Home Show’s entry garden can pick up a Generation Wild list of 100 things to do before you’re 12. Kids and adults alike are invited to experience the entry garden — 100% interactive, along with the American Family Insurance Kids Zone complete with a playground, games and activities.
The Show will also feature a hot products zone with must-have new gardening and home improvement products, more than 50 free educational seminars and how-to demonstrations, a kids zone complete with a playground, games and activities, and the annual flower sale on February 13 (perennials for $2 a pot), with proceeds supporting the Arvada Rotary.
