KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Officials confirmed Thursday morning that they are canceling the Greater Kansas City Home Show to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The show was scheduled to take place Friday, March 13 and run through Sunday, March 15 at Bartle Hall.
Designer Bobby Berk from Netflix’s hit series Queer Eye and KC’s own Tamara Day of HGTV’s Bargain Mansions were expected to make appearances at the show.
“This is a challenging time for our community,” said Will Ruder, Executive Vice President of the HBA. “We feel that it is important that we all take responsibility during this time of crisis in our country and do our part to minimize the spread of the coronavirus.”
There is no word yet on whether the show will be rescheduled or whether refunds will be issued.
