Welcome to the 2020 St. George Area Parade of Homes. This year marks our 30th parade and we’re grateful that you have decided to spend your time here with us. We are excited to bring to you 30 spectacular homes located in some of the most wonderful settings in our area. It’s amazing to see the growth in our community over the last 30 years and we are honored to be a part of southern Utah’s success. We hope you enjoy what our members have done to bring you a world-class event. This is truly going to be one to remember.

Our community is consistently ranked as one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. Once you visit, it’s not hard to understand why. The beauty and activities in our area are second to none. After you have visited all 30 homes, we hope you explore the home we all share that is southern Utah. With so many activities to do here, we hope the parade will help encourage you to make this area your home. We are so blessed to live in this wonderful area and love sharing it with you.

As you explore these homes, we hope you appreciate what our builders, designers, and trade contractors have created. Coming together as a team, is something we love most about our industry. All of us have to work together to build each and every one of our projects. This teamwork helps us collaborate with an experienced focused effort on every individual trade, with generations of insight dedicated to each craft. This is what helps us keep our projects fresh and exciting. As an association, we are proud to have so many innovative people providing quality products for you to enjoy.

I would also like to thank our SUHBA staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, and sponsors. None of this could be accomplished without the hours of service, donations, and resources provided by all who contribute. We are fortunate to have so many dedicated individuals/businesses helping us as an association. I thank each and every one of you.

The thing I love most about SUHBA is the opportunity we have to give back. We are continually looking for ways to give back to the community and industry that provides so much for us. We have so many wonderful programs dealing with education, service, smart growth, conservation, and government advocacy. These programs help all of us in a way only an association could provide. If you haven’t seen these programs, please visit our website to find out more. Giving back, provides us with a sustained economy for our future generations to enjoy. We represent a large number of builders and developers that are shaping our communities and we don’t take that lightly. We work tirelessly to protect the future of our industry!

I hope you enjoy the parade and if you are looking to extend your stay indefinitely, please contact one of the many home builders here is southern Utah. Also, don’t forget to tell your friends! Thank you for supporting our local economy, and please give us your feedback as we are always looking to improve ourselves and our community.

2020 Parade of Homes Chairman

The weather is warming, spring is near and the greatest tradition in Southern Utah has come once again.  Welcome to the 30th anniversary of the parade of homes.  Like the amazing home shows in the past, this year will not disappoint. These are amazing homes built by the best craftsman and tradesman this industry has to offer.  You will see things this year that you haven’t ever seen, and you will be able to enjoy it in new ways as we strive to enhance the website, app, magazine, maps and overall experience of every ticket holder.

This year’s theme is “where your story begins.” The parade of homes means something to everyone that attends.  For some of you it is your first outing and are taken back by the many beautiful communities and breathtaking views spread throughout Southern Utah.  For others, it is a longstanding tradition for you to catch up with a friend or family member as you tour the beautiful homes. And finally, it may be that you were fortunate enough to purchase a home in the parade or from one of the builders that inspired you. No matter what scenario best applies to you, there is a story behind it. We love hearing about them and so does everyone else.  Please take some time to share your story on our Facebook page St. George Area Parade of Homes.  Read some of the other amazing stories that we have been able to record.  

This parade is the ultimate art exhibit. Between God’s beautiful landscaped vistas and the well decorated homes, there is so much to be excited about!  Thank you for attending and for being a part of the 30th anniversary of the St. George Area Parade of Homes. We look forward to hearing how your story began!
