You could say that this year’s Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival will be a “crash”-ing good time.
Sponsored once again by our friends at HGTV, they have filled the festival with tons of HGTV and DIY Network experts – including most of the stars we HGTV/DIY insiders call “The Crashers.”
The Crashers, for those uninitiated into HGTV/DIY fandom, are HGTV/DIY expert designers and contractors who comb home improvement stores for people who need renovation help. Then – in just three days, mind you – they (with an expert crew of helpers) make over the family’s yard, bathroom, kitchen or whatever. Crashers making their very first appearance at this year’s festival are Matt Blashaw from “Yard Crashers,” Matt Meunster from “Bath Crashers” and Alison Victoria from “Kitchen Crashers.” Very exciting!
HGTV/DIY favorites at this year’s festival include Vern Yip, one of the judges of “Design Star,” Florida’s own David “Color Splash” Bromstad and John Gidding from “Curb Appeal.” Also new to this year’s festival are “Renovation Raiders” star Amy Matthews and Chip Wade, who started with Gidding on “Curb Appeal” and now has his own hit show called “Elbow Room.”
Here’s the list (everything subject to change, of course):
- March 7-9 – Vern Yip, “Design Star”
- March 14-16 – Chris Lambton, “Going Yard”
- March 21-23 – Matt Blashaw, “Yard Crashers”
- March 28-30 – Matt Meunster, “Bath Crashers”
- April 4-6 – Taniya Nayak, “House Hunters on Vacation”
- April 11-13 – Amy Matthews, “Renovation Raiders”
- April 18-20 – John Gidding, “Curb Appeal”
- April 25-27 – David Bromstad, “Color Splash”

I am super excited about the festival this year!
I love Matt Meunster and Alison Victoria. If I ever see one of them in person I will take them home with me!! I love the crashers shows. I will have to sit down and figure out which days I can go this year.
Disney and HGTV, two great brands at a great event– nice!
