TCF Center in Detroit.

For the first time in more than 15 years, the city of Detroit plans to host a home and garden show and will hold it at the new TCF Center next spring with hundreds of exhibitors and seminars.

The Detroit Spring Home & Garden Show, presented by Rocket Loans, will be held March 21-22 and cover 200,000 square feet of exhibit space at the TCF Center, formerly Cobo Center.

"With all of the home construction and renovation taking place in Detroit right now, along with the renewed interest in living in the city, it makes perfect sense for the premier home show event to return to Detroit, where it had been based for so many years," said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan in a press release.  "We’re excited to showcase our city and our great neighborhoods through the show, and we know visitors will be impressed with everything Detroit has to offer.”

The show will feature hundreds of exhibitors, an artisans market and antique appraisals. Lake Orion native Nicole Curtis, star of HGTV's "Rehab Addict," is scheduled to give seminars throughout the weekend.

The show will be produced by the Gazette Media Group, a Troy-based company that publishes weekly local newspapers and produces consumer shows and events across Southeast Michigan and the nation. 

“The time is right for an event like this to come back to the city," said Mark Nicholson, the show’s producer. "The Detroit Spring Home & Garden Show will be for everyone in Metro Detroit – city and suburbs. The show is the perfect opportunity for homeowners to see all of the latest trends and connect face to face with hundreds of local home improvement professionals."
