Looking for some fun ways to soak up the last of the summer season?! Allen has some fun events coming to town that will help you escape the dog days of summer and extend that sweet summertime feeling for just a little while longer. 

Check out these upcoming events coming to Allen!

Collin County Fall Home & Garden Show, September 17-19

Collin County Fall Home & Garden Show

For those of you in the mood to spend some time redecorating or renovating this season, this is one show you don’t want to miss. One place. One weekend. All your home improvement projects solved! Plus, admission is FREE and so is the parking! The Collin County Fall Home & Garden Show is coming to Allen Event Center, September 17-19, and will feature home improvement project specialists for every room in your home including those outdoor-living spaces! Builders, remodelers, building suppliers, decor specialists, and much more bring all their knowledge, latest techniques, and products to the arena floor. Get a chance to talk face-to-face with the pros that can turn your home improvement dreams into a reality!

After you’ve had your fill at the show, head into The Village at Allen to start shopping for your new space! With retailers like HomeGoods, Macy’s Backstage, Haverty’s, Hemispheres, Kirkland’s, Pier 1, and Target, you’re sure to find everything you need to get a head start on decorating your new space!

Make it a staycation weekend and book a hotel stay at Courtyard by Marriott Dallas Allen at Allen Event Center, just steps from the show. Sit back and relax by their large fire pit on the patio and melt your worries away, or turn down the heat and turn up the fun with friends on the patio of Bar Louie or Shakertins where you can enjoy live music, pool tables, and plenty of bar space to keep the rounds going!
