Hard to believe the Fall Parade of Homes begins next month! The Fall Parade of Homes begins September 10th and goes through October 2nd. The Fall Remodelers Showcase runs September 30th to October 2nd.

Homes on the tour are open Thursdays through Sundays from noon to 6:30 PM. This year, Pratt Homes is excited to introduce one of our newest models located in Twenty-one Oaks of Woodbury during the Fall Parade of Homes.

For those who are new to the Twin Cities and not familiar with the Parade of Homes, here are a few FAQ’s about it. You can read all of them here on the Parade of Homes website.

What is the Parade of Homes?

The Parade of Homes is a scattered site tour of new homes. Twice a year in the Twin Cities, builder members of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) open hundreds of models, spec and pre-sold homes for people to tour. Details are included in a printed magazine Guidebook and online at ParadeofHomes.org.

How much does it cost to tour?

Touring is always free, except for one to four homes that are selected by the BATC Foundation as their Artisan Dream Homes, with a $5 entry donation required. All proceeds help the Foundation build and remodel homes for area families in need.

Why is the Parade of Homes so popular?

Since 1949, anyone looking to make a move or simply interested in seeing the latest home designs, neighborhoods, or colors and accessories for their own homes have found the Parade of Homes is a great resource. With hundreds of new homes across the region, visitors can choose to visit them by location, price range and style. As a whole, the Parade of Homes truly does showcase the entire range of what new homes have to offer. Homes are all open specified hours over four or five weeks, and each home is priced accurately so you can see real costs associated with buying a new home.
