New & Improved Home Show Takes Over Halifax Exhibition Centre This Weekend


Halifax, NS – The newest fall home show launches at Halifax Exhibition Centre this coming weekend, October 13th through the 15th. The newly rebranded Ideal Whole Home Expo is by the producers of the well-established Ideal Home Show, and will feature something for all members of the family – including hundreds of home and renovation exhibits – plus activities and features for families and kids, pet lovers, foodies and those who like to shop!

“We are excited to be bringing a newly rebranded event to the Halifax market and we can’t wait to welcome everyone this weekend!” said Senior Show Manager Denise Miller. “Those looking to tackle home-based projects and renovations will still find all the great exhibitors they’ve come to expect, but we’ve also got some really enticing new initiatives. With a new marketplace shopping element, a pet section, and lots of activities for kids, this event is sure to appeal to the entire family!”

HGTV Canada’s Paul Lafrance, host of “Disaster Decks” and “Custom Built” will host two seminars during the show, to offer professional tips and advice. Known for his infectious energy, quick wit and unapologetic rock star style, Paul will be at the show on Saturday, October 14th from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and again from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

The Home Show Stage will also feature Epicure cooking demonstrations and a fall weatherization workshop with Efficiency Nova Scotia. The complete schedule is available on the show website.


  • For the kids – With bouncy castles, an appearance by Wonder Woman, Spiderman, and the Big Brothers Big Sisters Big Birthday Bash offering crafts, games, cake and Star Wars characters, there will be no shortage of activities to keep the kids entertained… all free with admission to the show!
