Home Tweet Home At The Calgary Home + Garden Show

At this year's 34th annual Calgary Home + Garden Show, taking place February 26 - March 1 at the BMO Center & Corral, we're introducing an exciting new design challenge for a cause: Home Tweet Home. This new feature will showcase 20 birdhouses designed by Calgary's top designers, tastemakers, and media personalities. Each creation is inspired by drawings of a dream house as imagined by a young beneficiary of Ronald McDonald House® Southern Alberta.

Each miniature abode will be up for silent auction for the duration of the show, and 20 lucky bidders will have the chance to walk away with their house of choice, with 100% of the funds directly benefitting Ronald McDonald House® Southern Alberta.
