Welcome to the Winnipeg Renovation Show!

As the weather grows cold, winter is the perfect time to tackle those at-home projects and refreshers before the arrival of spring. Now more than ever, our homes need to adapt to our ever-changing lifestyles without breaking the bank. With real advice, real inspiration, and real experts, we’ve handpicked the industry’s best, from top celebrity guests and homegrown Winnipeg talent alike.

This year, we’re thrilled to welcome back HGTV Canada’s Bryan Baeumler of Bryan Inc. to The Lifestyle Stage presented by Kitchen Craft Cabinetry and the Winnipeg Free Press, where he will make his return to the Winnipeg Renovation Show and offer up advice, insight, and behind-the-scenes tales of renovating homes with his wife Sarah all while maintaining a busy family life with four kids. Plus, don’t miss a slew of Winnipeg’s very own top designers and renovation experts including local designer Kelsey Kosman of Dollhouse Design and Winnipeg’s leading renovation experts from All Canadian Renovations Ltd. Back for the second year on The Lifestyle Stage, Winnipeg’s favourite chefs and culinary pros, including Tony De Luca of De Luca’s, will lead live cooking demos and share their expert know-how.

For the first time this year, you can bring Winnipeg’s best style off the streets and into your home. The Great Crate Challenge tasks Winnipeg’s top local influencers to reimagine two, simple crates, into original home decor masterpieces. The best part? Each influencer will give away their creation to a lucky winner at the end of the show.

From there, shop and consult more than 200 trusted brands and local companies, all under one roof. Don’t miss the popular Ask a Renovator booth presented by The Manitoba Home Builder’s Association and Home Decor and Renovations Magazine or The Design Studio presented by Style Manitoba and sponsored by Cloverdale Paint where you’ll have the chance to snag a free, one-on-one consultation with a local renovation or design expert. Gather your Pinterest dream boards, paint swatches, and floor plan, and come with an open mind to get the best tips for your time.
