A ribbon-cutting and garden party will kick off the 17th annual Decorators’ Show House beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the Knox Summer Estate at Knox Farm State Park, East Aurora.

The event, co-sponsored by the Junior League of Buffalo and The Buffalo News, will be the first tour of the former Knox family home, which has been transformed into this year’s Show House.

The events at the Show House are a celebration of the efforts of hundreds of Junior League and community volunteers, in addition to labor contributed by more than 55 local decorators and landscapers.

Decorators’ Show House 2013 will be open to the public beginning Saturday and running through May 19.

The hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays; and 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets are $20 at the door. They may also be purchased online at www.jbuffalo.org.
