We know this is a difficult time for everyone in and around Raleigh. While we understand the timing of the show may be difficult for many, the show will go on as planned. For those of you in need of home repair, our goal is for the show to be a resource. We encourage everyone to be vigilant in the selection of the companies you hire.

If you had tickets or complimentary passes to the Downtown Raleigh Home Show (Sept 14-16), we will accept those tickets and passes for admission to the Southern Ideal Home Show.

In this time where North Carolinians are being forced from their homes due to flooding, we are helping raise monies for Habitat for Humanity’s Hurricane Florence Response Fund. To give a donation, please visit our ticket page. For more information about our Habitat partnership, click here.
