UPDATE: After removing pingbacks and 2 duplicate entries, congratulations to entry #2 – Carly for winning this giveaway. Please reply to my email confirming you can attend by noon 2/5.
Today’s a big day in the Hicken households. Scott’s parents and grandmother are coming to Cleveland! Not next year, not next month, not next week. Today, we gain new neighbors.
With a new house comes the fun of new home improvement and gardening projects. There’s even a tree house in the backyard that has Scott’s dad’s name all over it.
This week’s giveaway couldn’t be better themed because I have a pair of tickets to The Great Big Home and Garden Show for you!
Mark your calendars for February 8 through 16, when The Great Big Home and Garden Show returns to the Cleveland I-X Center.
Featuring more than 650 exhibitors, along with idea rooms and gardens, the Home and Garden Show will offer tips and techniques in cooking, landscaping, home improvement and more.
Some of the show’s highlights include:
Special guests Ahmed Hassan (Yard Crashers) and Emily Ellyn (Next Food Network Star and Cupcake Wars) will present on the show’s main stage on February 8 and 9, while Frank Fritz (American Pickers) will appear February 15.
Northeast Ohio’s top landscapers will partner with local restaurants to present internationally themed gardens. Stop by the show on Feb. 10 and 11 between 4 and 8pm for special tasting events in the gardens.
The Loretta Paganini Cooking Stage will host daily cooking sessions presented by local chefs like AMP150’s Jeff Jarrett (Spring Vegetable Side Dishes), Umami Kitchen’s Matthew Anderson (Sensational Soups), and SowFood’s Brian Doyle (Cooking with Herbs). The Brewer’s Daughter’s Renee Deluca will also be joined by Stefanie Paganini for a Cooking with Beer demo.
Petitti’s Gardening Stage will feature seminars on designing outdoor spaces, protecting your plants against garden pests, sustainable gardening, and creating miniature gardens.
If you buy your tickets at the I-X Center box office, they’ll cost $14. However, buy them online and save. Online tickets cost only $11, plus take another $1 off by using promo code CIC when you check out online.
I’m also giving away a pair of tickets to the event. How to enter: Do one, some, or all five of the entries. A separate comment is needed for each.
