Our Home improvement and Garden show will be held at the Earth Expo & Convention Center at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT from Friday February 18 – Sunday February 20, 2022.
Meet your next home improvement professional, learn something new about home renovations or garden design and landscaping care, enter contests and then head over to the Mohegan Sun Casinos and stay for some dining, shopping or fun nightlife. There’s plenty of convenient parking at the Earth Expo & Convention Center at Mohegan Sun. For your convenience, park in the WINTER LOT for easy access to the show.
The CT Garden and Home Show offers a diverse array of home and garden care products and services by local New England Businesses, from New London to Hartford, to national vendors, each presenting innovative and imaginative displays. Everything you need for your home, condo, apartment, lawn, garden and health needs will be at our incredible home improvement event!
As in the previous years, our home and garden show will feature home improvement companies from the local area but will also include representatives from national vendors. At Jenks Productions, we always want to provide a full complement of vendors to satisfy any service your home may require but we also make sure to provide a variety of offerings within each service. This ensures our visitors have everything they need to make the most educated decisions when selecting a home improvement professional.
This year we have ramped up our speakers and lectures and will have hourly programing Saturday and Sunday. Topics range from roses, flowers, vegetables, and other plants, to Garden & Landscape design, pollinators and so much more.
As you can see above, our CT home and garden show will feature gardening and lawn care vendors offering information, goods and services to beautify and care for your home’s “green” needs. If you already have your own home garden ideas or are looking for inspiration, these are the professionals you want to brainstorm with. Stop by each booth to see samples and demos from the experts. Learn more about gardening, garden design & construction, arranging flowers, watering plants, growing seasonal plants & vegetables, landscaping, lawn care and basically anything else you could imagine at a garden show.

The 40th Annual Home & Garden Show is Back After a Year of Uncertainty
Home Contractors, Solar Power, Garden Design, #trendingnow Vendors Draw Attendees by the Thousands
East Hampton, CT— May 5, 2021 – Jenks Productions has been working closely with the Mohegan Sun and the local health department to bring this event back, ensuring safety and fun environment for all. The Home & Garden Show marks the second event Jenks has done in 2021. Vice President Wes Jenks said, “We are excited to finally be back to producing events. After our Bridal Expo at the Eastern States Exposition “Home of The BIG E”, it is safe to say people are ready to get out and have a fun day at a show. The event might feel a little different with direction traffic flow, temperature scans and mask requirements, but overall, it’s the same great experience with hundreds of the area’s best Home & Gardening Pros” This year homeowners will find a variety of exterior contractors for services ranging from, masonry, HVAC, siding, paving, lawncare, irrigation, fencing and the like. However, the next generation of homeowners take it a step further. You will see displays and presentations for outdoor fireplaces, and firepits. This year’s show offers a plethora of vendors representing both interior home contractors and exterior home services. Among them are window installation companies, roofing contractors, kitchen and bath designers, overhead doors, furniture, painters, marble, granite and masonry, landscapers, tree services and more. Home improvement trade shows and expos still prevail as a dominant way to introduce new trends, speak directly to consumers and expand your customer base.
Industry Trends Dominate
Dennis Jenks, who founded Jenks Productions forty years ago when he produced his first home show and energy show, marvels at the growth that home show expos have seen. “Gone are the days of formal entertaining in the living room, or parlor. Our attendees come in with awesome design ideas to take down walls, create open floor plans, install hearths, kitchen islands and other interior features that draw the family and guests together while eating or entertaining. I really wanted to add the word Garden to the title of the show to demonstrate our commitment to exterior beautification and our speaker list reflects this. We have numerous experts lecturing on gardening, horticulture, landscaping, butterflies and the importance of bees. As far as our vendors, they go to great lengths to bring in incredible displays. They are the best of the best at what they do- and they prove it at this show. They devote hours to create booths that appeal to all the senses. These vendors know that it isn’t just about home maintenance and restoration any more, it’s about NEW installations, NEW ideas, NEW designs, NEW products and contemporary design concepts. My promise to you: attendees, vendors and the media will see ALL of this and more at this year’s show,” said Dennis.
Tickets to the show are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and children 12 and under are FREE. The show is conveniently located at Earth Expo & Convention Center at Mohegan Sun, 1 Mohegan Sun Boulevard, Uncasville, CT. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting the Southeastern Home & Garden Show page of the Jenks Productions website. You can also purchase tickets at the show entrance. Parking is FREE. Home and Garden Show hours are as follows: Friday 5-9 pm, Saturday 11-9 pm, Sunday 11-5 pm. Attendees receive discounts to a number of restaurants and merchants the weekend of the show by presenting their admission ticket. Participating merchants can be viewed by visiting the 40th Southeastern Home & Garden Show page under the “Vendor List.” Attendees and vendors can follow Jenks Productions on Instagram @jenkshomeshows and on Facebook @ JenksProductions for ticket offers and promotions.
