    Southern Home and Garden Show: Big Thursday is back!

    The Southern Home and Garden Show is in the final stages of preparation for its grand opening on Friday morning, September 30, at 10 a.m.  But before the show opens to the public, it will open on Thursday evening for HBA members, guests, and community leaders for a preview party we affectionately call “Big Thursday.”

    Big Thursday begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, September 29, on the show floor at the TD Convention Center.  Extra tickets are available at the door for $20 each.

    Big Thursday returns to the Southern Home & Garden Show as a private event held on the exhibit floor. The Thursday evening VIP reception is an invitation-only event for members of Upstate area Home Builders Associations, Realtors, business owners, elected officials and other VIPs.

    The Thursday night event will have more of a trade show feel,” said Michael Dey, Executive Officer of the Home Builders Association of Greenville. “We’ve had many exhibitors ask us about bringing back Big Thursday and believe this is the best way to do it. A private reception will allow home show exhibitors the opportunity to meet with builders and other potential business partners before the show opens to the public on Friday morning.”

    The theme for this year’s Big Thursday is tailgating.  Thursday night college football will be shown in the game zone on the show floor.  Live entertainment on the Palmetto Bank stage will feature The Funktion.

    Big Thursday is sponsored by Waldrop Heating and Air, Piedmont Natural Gas, Home Depot, TD Convention Center, and Vass Markets.  The Southern Home and Garden Show is presented by Charter and produced by the Home Builders Association of South Carolina.

    Don’t miss the hottest private party in town this Thursday at the Southern Home and Garden Show.
