A blog post from Kat Alderson on the Second Life Home and Garden Expo website brings word that this year’s event, the 7th to be held in Second life, has been rescheduled.

Originally set to take place on May 13th through 27th inclusive, the event will now take place in September, with the Press Days set for the 14th and 15th September, and opening its doors to the public at large on September 16th through 28th inclusive.

The change has come about due to a mix of unforeseeable circumstances, misunderstandings in what is proving to be a packed events season, as Kat explains in the post:

In October 2013, we announced that the 2014 Home Expo would take place  May 13-27.  Since then, other events announced their schedules, and the spring and summer are packed with high volume events which support Relay For Life of Second Life, as well as other non-profit organizations, charitable institutions, and private interests.

The Home and Garden Expo is the SL event where users can see homes, gardens and furnishing from  creators across SL, enjoy talks and presentations by designers, enjoy entertainment throughout the week and - most importantly, help raise funds for RFL of SL. YThe 2014 event will now take place between September 16th and 28th

While the new dates for the event fall outside of the main RFL of SL fundraising season, the 2014 Home and Garden Expo will still be an RFL of SL event, and 100% of all fees, sponsorships and donations will go directly to the RFL of SL 2014 fundraising coffers.

One element of the Expo will, however, still occur in May 2014. This is the Fiction for a Cure activities (readings, auctions, and raffle), which will take place May 16-26 on the American Cancer Society island.
