The NHS Backyard: where outdoor products come to shine! The NHS Backyard is the National Hardware Show’s home for all things lawn, garden, farm, ranch, outdoor living, and grilling.

There is truly no other event that fills the void for outdoor living quite like the National Hardware Show. Originally launched back in 2005, the National Hardware Show has always had a robust lawn and garden category to host a wide range of outdoor living suppliers. Now, to support the rapid growth of these categories, the Backyard has branched into its very own category to become the destination for everything outdoors at NHS.

The NHS Backyard allows attendees to more easily discover the newest range of products across lawn, garden, farm, ranch, outdoor living, and grilling. Encompassing both the indoor and outdoor areas of the Show, the NHS Backyard is home to hundreds of exhibitors across lawn & gardenfarm & ranchoutdoor living, and BBQ & grill including Snow Joe, Gardenex, Shelterlogic Group, GCI Outdoor, Bryson Industries, Black Stone Products, and many more.

NHS Celebrity-Chef Cook-Off

The exciting NHS Cook-off will return in 2024! Chefs representing exhibitors in our BBQ & Grilling category will once again go head-to-head in the Backyard to show their skills by creating a unique dish using a set of specific ingredients chosen by our host, Mitche Graf from BBQ Nation.

Last year, each chef was tasked with grilling their best burger and whipping up a tasty appetizer, to then be judged by a panel of foodies. The winner of the Cook-Off earned serious bragging rights and a cash prize. Join us on Day 1 (March 26) in the NHS Backyard to see what’s cooking. Chefs will begin at 12:00 PM, and judging will take place at 2:00 PM.
