Raleigh Fairgrounds Southern Ideal Home Show
Following nearly a year’s hiatus due of COVID-19 restrictions, the Raleigh Fairgrounds Southern Ideal Home Show returns for its spring edition. The highly anticipated annual consumer show comes back to the market amid a home improvement boom –home-related projects are up nearly 58% over last year, according to Houzz – and consumers eager to spend fresh stimulus money on upgrades and renovations. The show features a Food Truck Rally with plenty of socially distanced seating available each day, local and regional experts on home improvement and local, trusted exhibitors with the latest products and services. To recognize the efforts of local frontline heroes during the pandemic, the show celebrates Hero Day on Friday, April 9– all active military personnel, veterans, EMTs, nurses, healthcare workers, firefighters, police and medical personnel receive complimentary admission with valid ID (offer only with ID, and only on Friday). Friday is also Senior Day, tickets for seniors aged 60 and up are available for $7 online and at the box office. Teacher Day is Sunday, April 11. Teachers will receive complimentary admission to the show with valid faculty ID at the box office on Sunday. Additionally, tickets purchased for the 2020 Fairgrounds Southern Ideal Home Show are valid for the Fairgrounds Southern Ideal Home Show (Spring Edition), April 9-11, 2021 or the Fairgrounds Southern Ideal Home Show (Fall Edition), September 17-19, 2021.
