Eventhough it’s the dead of winter, everyone is dreaming of spring… and summer! Get inspired this winter at a few local Home & Garden Events in the Minneapolis Area.

February 10-12
Lake Home & Cabin Show
Minneapolis Convention Center
Who else but a Minnesotan would end a hectic work week and drive three hours in the dark to sleep on a creaky bed just to “be there” for that first cup of coffee on the dock? We have a love affair with our lake homes and cabins and each year we rekindle it at the Lake Home & Cabin Show. The Lake Home & Cabin Show is Minnesota’s ONLY show that specializes in second homes and the second home lifestyle. If you own a lake home, cottage or cabin or you want to own one this is a truly unique and focused event you’ll want to experience.

February 16-19
