Frequently Asked Questions

What is Richmond Parade of Homes?

The Richmond Parade of Homes is Virginia’s largest home show. Every year, builders in the Greater Richmond region design and construct model and move-in-ready homes for this scattered-site tour. Each builder is a member of the Home Building Association of Richmond and the National Association of Home Builders, meaning, they have access to the best innovation, education, and certification opportunities available in the new construction profession.

Why is the Parade of Homes so popular?

The Richmond Parade of Homes has been helping Virginians find homes, builders, and inspiration for homes since 1951— a longstanding tradition, now in its 72nd year. Virginians from around the state tour the show homes to see the latest home designs, floor plans, interior décor inspiration, and the hottest neighborhoods. With more local home builders than anywhere else in the Commonwealth of Virginia, people use the show as their single source of builder information. If you are not ready to build a new home, enjoy the design inspiration and weekend events.

What, and where, are the Weekend Events?

Over the first three weekends in October, a neighborhood featuring homes in the Parade hosts a family-fun event. Check out of Community Weekend Sponsors page for information about community events.
