Welcome to the 2021 St. George Area Parade of Homes! This is the Southern Utah Home Builders Association’s (SUHBA) 31st Parade, and it promises to be one of the best. The 2020 Parade of Homes was a record setting event, but that triumph was followed by a challenging year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize last year has presented many hurdles and I want to applaud our SUHBA family for coming together and making this event possible by enacting safety measures for parade visitors and everyone involved. For the first time in the Parade of Homes history, we will have virtual tours with every ticket purchase for those that cannot attend.

I admire our community and members of the home building industry for pulling together, adapting, and overcoming these difficulties to keep the home building industry strong. The 29 homes you will visit during this parade are the exceptional results of those efforts.

The St. George area continues to be a destination for visitors and new residents. Our panoramic surroundings coupled with an average of 255 days of sunshine a year and plenty of outdoor recreation, have fueled a strong and steadily growing real estate market. Those relocating here will enjoy a higher quality of life, and those choosing to buy homes in our area can feel secure in their investment.

As you make your way through the Parade route, I encourage you to take in the details and craftsmanship of each home. Ponder on the countless hours put into each creation by passionate teams of builders and designers. Engage in conversation with those professionals when you encounter them in their homes and share your thoughts and impressions with them and on social media.

Thank you to the SUHBA staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, sponsors, builders, subcontractors, and suppliers. This Parade is not possible without your dedication to your profession, your skill, and your teamwork. I am constantly impressed by your dedication to the community and to one another. Lastly, thank you to all of our attendees who return year-after-year and make this tremendous event possible.

An unprecedented year brings unique unification to this well-loved annual tradition.

In these unprecedented times, it is truly my honor and privilege to welcome you to the 31st annual St. George Area Parade of Homes presented by our local community in partnership with the Southern Utah Home Builders Association.  This world renowned Parade of Homes event is positioned to be absolutely spectacular as 29 builders showcase their imagination and creativity, just for you. The astounding lineup of homes are set to amaze even the most experienced parade participant. Many diverse and unique communities will be toured throughout Washington County, exemplifying the pristine beauty and lifestyle of living in southern Utah.

Our passionate parade builders, trade partners, architects, designers and artisans are honored to showcase their exquisite craftsmanship - bringing their highest level of excellence to you.  Each and every home presents its own unique character created by the many men and women who come together for one, unified goal; to create something new and spectacular. With their passion and drive, they continue the annual tradition of excellence, 

Countless hours are contributed to ensure attention to even the smallest of detail is presented.  Each one of these individuals appreciates and enjoys the opportunity to share their talents with all who wish to come and indulge in every aspect of their work from the most incredible and breathtaking structures to the simplest of new and unique ideas. 

The St. George Area Parade of Homes event remains rich in history while leading the industry in new, creative and cutting edge accomplishments.  We are so grateful to our founding and current members who had (and continue to have) uncommon zeal, energy and determination to deliver this high caliber event.  This event takes a considerable amount of effort from so many people and it would not be possible without them. I would personally like to thank our incredibly dedicated SUHBA staff, all the very generous volunteers, and our local community leaders and supporters for their tremendous contributions. The St. George Area Parade of Homes is again set to be the top in the nation and it's because of their many hours of hard work, creativity and enthusiasm.
