The Parade of Homes is a brand presentation of new and remodeled homes in the United States. It is also known as the Tour of Homes in some regions. It includes single family homes, condominiums, maisonettes and townhouses. This year the 67th annual parade of homes in Orlando is just around the corner and we are very proud to be a gold sponsor!
The parade of houses is one wonderful event to visit when you are looking for a new house to buy or when you are redesigning your home. You will discover innovations in housing, energy efficiency, sustainable architecture and interior design that will inspire you. Visit the parade in Orlando to see some of the best homes in Central Florida. You have the opportunity to experience over 100 beautiful homes in the Orlando area.
About the parade of houses
The parade of houses is often presented by the local Home Builders Association (“HBA”) or the Building Industry Association (“BIA”). In Orlando it is organized by the Greater Orlando Builders Association (GOBA). The Minnesota parade, launched in 1948 by the first home tour organization, Housing First Minnesota, is the largest in the nation.
Some locations offer free tours, while others require an admission ticket. In Orlando, the parade consists of free, self-guided tours. This year you can do your tour from May 2nd to 10th between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.
Is it an actual parade?
No, the parade of houses is not a real parade. It is a self-guided tour of the best homes currently available on the market.
