The lineup for the 9th Annual Cy-Fair Home & Garden Show includes new exhibitors, which will inspire, entertain and educate, as well as favorites from past shows, providing new, timely updates to age-old homeowner dilemmas.
“Among the new exhibitors this year is Save Texas History, an effort by the General Land Office to provide education, preservation and digitization of our state’s historical documents and maps,” said Tony Wood, president of Texwood Shows Inc., producer of the Cy-Fair Home & Garden Show. “Certain to be a popular exhibit, showgoers will have an opportunity to see and purchase high-resolution prints of early maps of Texas and other historical documents.”
Continuing the Texas theme is the “Texas Room,” presented by Sunspace Texas (booth #207/209/211) to showcase its WeatherMaster Plus stacking door system. Custom-designed to enclose sunrooms or covered patios, the doors can be quickly and easily closed against the unpredictability of the Gulf Coast’s weather, and just as easily reopened when the threat passes.
Just in time for spring cleaning, organizing gets a nod with the Ask The Organizer Booth, featuring garage, attic and storage unit organizer Judson Crowder, owner of Houston-based Restorganize, who will be on hand from noon to 4 p.m. each day of the show. Following his presentation entitled “Heaven, Hell or Purgatory,” Crowder will man the booth to personally answer questions from those in attendance.
Addressing other annual homeowner tasks, such as landscaping, gardening and outdoor living will be: Gardenline’s Randy Lemmon speaking on spring planting for the Houston area; Turf Plus Management’s Belgard Outdoor Living Area exhibit (outside show entrance); a feature exhibit by Houston Cool Pools (booth #400); RCW Nurseries’ In-Show Garden Market (outside show entrance); and the Ask The Master Gardener Booth, which will provide an opportunity to get advice from Harris County Master Gardeners.
Home chefs can pick up tips and recipes from two separate cooking stages. In addition to the Black Olive Grill Outdoor Cooking Stage, this year’s show also will feature the Berry Center Kitchen Cooking Stage, both providing live demonstrations from My Icebox Healthy Meal Club, as well as by Berry Center Chef Lisa Pratt, who also is a catering chef at Class Act, Executive Chef David Ortega of d’Vine Wine Bar and chefs from popular Cypress-area restaurants including Dario’s American Cuisine, Marvino’s Italian Kitchen and Alicia’s Mexican Grille.
Simple Elegance (booth #103/105) will demonstrate Hunter Douglas’ PowerView Motorization/Automation App, which allows homeowners to schedule automatic operations or operate window treatments remotely – all from a mobile device, and homeowners with a desire to update their baths can see what manufacturers Kohler, Delta and others have to offer at the Bath Hardware Showcase by MIB Remodeling.
“This year’s Charity Partner is the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation, whose vision is to provide college financial support to capable and motivated Cy-Fair ISD student leaders with a financial need,” said Wood. “Be sure to stop by the foundation’s booth to learn more about its programs and how you can help the foundation achieve its goals.”
