The Spring Atlanta Home Show, Georgia’s largest one, will return to the Cobb Galleria Centre near Vinings Friday through Sunday.

The annual event will bring together more than 350 experts in the home remodeling and landscaping industries to showcase the latest products and services for homes of all sizes and styles. This year, for the first time, Jeff Devlin of the DIY Network will bring his entertaining blend of know-how and good humor to the Reliable Heating & Air Home Show Stage, headlining a roster of exciting speakers who will appear throughout the three-day event.

“The Spring and Fall Atlanta Home Shows offer homeowners one-stop shopping like no other event,” said show director Michael Schoppenhorst. “Here they can see new products demonstrated, ask questions, talk to the experts, comparison shop and enjoy demonstrations by nationally known home and landscape professionals.

“We are excited to welcome Jeff Devlin. ... He’s well-known from his hits on the DIY Network and I think his presentations will be very popular. One lucky person and a guest will win the opportunity to have brunch with Jeff on Saturday, March 23. Details on how to enter the contest will be announced on the Atlanta Home Show’s official Facebook page, Plus, one lucky attendee will win a brand new kitchen from IKEA.”

Walter Reeves, the Georgia Gardener, will kick off the speaker schedule Friday at noon with a presentation on “Newest and Coolest Garden Tools.” He’ll be followed on Friday by HGTV’s Tonya M. Williams, a Buckhead resident, and Joe Washington who will present “As the Real Estate World Turns” and “The Right Plant in the Right Place the Right Way,” respectively.

Saturday will begin with two live radio broadcasts. First, Reeves will take the air with “The Lawn and Garden Show,” followed by Belinda Skelton guest-hosting “The Home Fix-It Show,” both on FM 95.5 and AM 750 News/Talk WSB. Skelton will also broadcast her new WSB show, “Belinda Skelton’s Atlanta Living,” from the Atlanta Home Show from 1 to 3 p.m.

Additional presentations throughout the weekend will cover aging in place, interior design, home improvement and much more. See the full schedule at
