The HBAGK Home Show is the region’s favorite and longest-running home show – this is the 69th annual show – and the only home show for people wishing to have face-to-face contact with the area’s premier builders, designers, landscape companies, flooring companies, kitchen and bath remodelers, home security system providers, door and window companies and more.
Admission to the Home Show is $5 – but attendees who bring a donation of dog or cat food (worth $5) for Young-Williams Animal Center will be admitted for free.
“The Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville represents the most professional, experienced and trustworthy builders, subcontractors and suppliers in East Tennessee,” HBAGK president Alan Van Why said. “This is the only show that gives people direct access to the region’s most established and reputable building industry professionals.”
