The Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase

When: September 28th – October 1st

Thursday through Sunday from noon to 6pm you can tour all 64 homes of the Remodelers Showcase

Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase: The Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase is a scattered site tour of remodeled homes held in conjunction with the Parade of Homes. Twice a year in the Twin Cities, remodeler members of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) open dozens of real remodeled homes for people to tour. Details are included in a printed magazine Guidebook and online at

Cost: Touring the homes on the Parade of Homes and the Remodelers Showcase is free. Artisan Dream Remodeled Homes require a $5 donation per home to tour.  All proceeds help the Foundation build and remodel homes for area families in need.

About the Remodelers Showcase: Originated in the mid 1980s, the Remodelers Showcase has long been a great way for homeowners to “shop” the real work of area remodelers. Since most of the projects remodelers complete are lived-in homes, allowing prospective clients the opportunity to actually tour their projects is a challenge. And deciding on a remodeler by looking at a photo portfolio just isn’t the same.

Guidebooks: Guidebooks are available now at regional Holiday Stationstores. The Guidebooks include information about all of the homes on tour, plus interesting articles and an extensive style section showing off the latest décor items. The Guidebook is available at in e-magazine format, too. And of course, is your online resource with everything in the Guidebook plus many more filters and resources to make touring fun and easy; and to bring you valuable information year round.
