Participating in the Parade of Homes

The annual Parade of Homes is Asheville’s largest showcase and tour of new residential homes.  Participating in this event is a great way to highlight your most outstanding home designs, styles, and new technologies.  This tour, in the past, attracted enthusiastic visitors looking forward to meeting builders in person as they explored beautiful, newly completed homes. After a crazy 2020 we are back with our in person Parade Tours! All homes entered (besides coming soon) will also include a digital tour, to accommodate those who can’t make it out, and to get more views!

This year’s Parade weekends will be October 9 – 10 & 16 – 17, 2021

There are multiple ways to be involved in this highly anticipated event!
