On Friday night HGTV’s Bryan Baeumler took to the main stage, presented by the Edmonton Journal and designed by Liquid Granite Coatings. There he provided audience members with tips to master their next home renovation. Through telling first hand accounts about home reno horror stories he dispensed expert advice about fixing DIY problems and helping your home renovations go off without a hitch! Following his presentation, Bryan signed autographs and took photos with his admiring fans.

The Capital FM Renovation Runway was a huge hit among show goers, who had a chance to stroll through our very own “home” designed by Rosalyn Lazaruk of Wicket Blue Interiors. Whether your interior tastes are traditional or contemporary, this year’s latest renovation trends were on display and our exhibitors were showcased in this stylin’ feature.

Nine local DIYers, craftspeople and celebrities got to show off their creative talents in the Ultimate Upcycle Challenge: Unhinged, presented by Rust-Oleum. The locals took upcycled doors and had to reuse, recycle and repurpose them for under $100! Guests had the opportunity to bid on their favorite creation in a silent auction benefitting Habitat for Humanity.


Kids had a chance to swoon at dream homes suited just for them at the Playhouse Parade, with landscaping provided by Blue Isle Landscaping. Some of our very talented exhibitors put their design minds to work and created awe-inspiring playhouses that push boundaries and draw admirers young and old. Some lucky kiddos will be creating new memories this summer in these masterpieces as they were auctioned off, with the proceeds going towards the Edmonton Public Library.


Thank you to everyone who visited and took part in the 2016 Edmonton Renovation Show. We will see you in March for the Edmonton Home + Garden Show!
