HBA Fox Cities Parade of Homes takes place August 11-12 & 16-19 (remodeling entries are open Aug. 17-19). Hours are 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. Each ticket grants one-time admission to all homes in the event. You may visit the homes in any order and split them among all the days of the event.
Parade of Homes guidebooks will be available with proof of ticket purchase the Monday prior to the start of the event at the HBA Fox Cities Office (920 W. Association Dr., Appleton) or at any of the participating homes in the Parade during the event dates and times.
All homes are located in the Greater Fox Cities area of Wisconsin.
There are many ways to find the homes:
HBA Fox Cities has a set of Guest Policies that we respectfully require you follow:
*If, for medical reasons only, a guest is unable to walk without wearing shoes, the guest must take off the shoes worn into the garage, put on a clean, dry pair of shoes that the guest has carried in and put booties over those shoes. Event personnel have the right to inspect these shoes to ensure they are dry and carry no matter that may cause damage to the home’s floors.
You can download the FREE HBA Fox Cities Parade mobile app on your smart phone or tablet on the App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android); search "Fox Cities Parade of Homes".
Each individual home profile indicates whether or not the home is decorated, partially decorated, furnished or partially furnished.

Roughly four weeks after the HBA Fox Cities Parade of Homes concludes, virtual tours of all the homes will be available for viewing on www.foxcitiesparadeofhomes.com. Simply search the show you're interested in reviewing, click any home profile, then "view slideshow" to view.
If you have not pre-purchased your ticket, you may purchase a ticket at any home in the event, during event hours. Once you have your ticket, you will present it at each house you tour; a representative (most likely in the garage) will scan the QR code to signify your visit.
Prior to entering the home, please take off your shoes and put on a pair of foot coverings.
Each home featured in the Parade of Homes is either already owned or will soon be owned by an individual or family that looks forward to moving into a brand-new home; please be respectful of all these private houses.
Tickets can be purchased online by clicking "buy tickets" in the upper righthand corner on foxcitiesparadeofhomes.com or at any of the places found on the Ticket Locations page.
