The Parade of Homes is perfect for looky-loos and snoopers alike. In fact, it is highly encouraged. The Parade of Homes Colorado Springs 2022 happens September 9th-25th, with tickets going on sale in mid to late August. This is the 68th annual Parade of Homes, and it is sponsored by the Housing and Building Association of Colorado Springs (HBA).
This year at the parade, Homes range in price from $500,000 to over $3,000,000, and this is the premier place to come to meet builders and see the new and evolving technologies in home building and home design.
If you are unfamiliar with the HBA, they have been around since the 1950s as a voice of the homebuilding community and associated trades. They advocate for attainable housing, contribute to regional development issues, and serve the Colorado Springs community through various programs such as Careers in Construction Colorado, and HBA Cares programs. Our Colorado Springs HBA cares about building a better Colorado Springs.
The HBA Parade of Homes offers the public a first-hand look at the current trends and cutting-edge innovations in new home design and home products. For the three-week event, participants can tour homes, talk to builders, gather ideas, and try out new technologies. It is one of the best ways to get excited about building a new home. This showcase covers all trends in affordable living to luxury dream homes complete with every amenity imaginable.
Each year attendees of the Parade of Homes get to vote on their favorite homes by price point. All attendees of the Parade of Homes who visited a minimum of eight homes are allowed to cast their vote in multiple price categories.
The Parade of Homes has some long-running sponsors for this popular event. La–Z–Boy Furniture Galleries, Mortgage Solutions Financial, Oakwood Homes, The Gazette, Oakwood Homes Design Center, and Colorado Springs Utilities have all been past sponsors and their support is key to a well-organized and fun event.
At this event, La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries sweetens the pot by providing a $5,000 shopping spree grand prize for one lucky Parade-goer who voted for their favorite homes. Other great prizes are also offered by the Parade of Homes Sponsors.
In addition to the amazing homes on tour, each year the Parade of Homes also highlights a few of the featured communities of the area. Additional information about these communities is available and several homes in these communities are available for touring. For 2022, the featured communities included:
Builders participate in the Parade of Homes year after year. From large production builders like Classic Homes, Century Communities, and Oakwood Homes to small custom home builders like All About Home, Murphy's Custom Homes, and Galiant Homes, you are bound to find a builder that you connect with. Builder representatives are often staged at the homes to answer questions and demonstrate some of the unique features of homes. In addition, you can also find a variety of resources regarding architects, landscapers, interior designers, and more in each of the homes. Plan on coming home from the Parade of Homes with business cards, pamphlets, and design books and brimming with ideas for a new home, or how to improve your current home.
