From the Trend Home to the Parade of Homes
In 1948, Minneapolis and St. Paul became the birthplace of the Twin Cities Parade of Homes, with the Remodelers Showcase joining the home tour lineup in 1984. What began with a single Trend Home — a collaboration of six member builders looking to showcase the best of what new construction had to offer — has transformed into the largest and longest-running home tour in the nation.
It’s not every day you get to celebrate 75 years of home tours! Dive into the full history >>
A Legacy Worth Celebrating
The Parade of Homes has a proud history of presenting the leading homeownership event in Minnesota. We have welcomed Minnesotans to celebrate homeownership for decades and watched our region grow. Read more about the Parade of Homes legacy >>
