Parade of Homes Entries

Entering a Home or Project in the Parade of Homes is a great way to showcase your style and craftsmanship to a variety of home buyers both in our area and abroad.  Home entries include new construction and complete remodels, and can be either occupied or unoccupied.  All Parade entries are featured in a full-color glossy publication distributed throughout the Parade and at AHBA Consumer Events throughout the year. Homes on tour are open for a free self-guided tour during the weekends of October 12 – 13 & 19 – 20, 2019 from 1 – 5 pm.
