The Wait Is Over…It’s Parade Of Homes Time!

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Whether you’re looking for a new home or would love to see what’s hot in home design, an event in our area is always highly anticipated!  Starting Saturday, June 4, and ending on Sunday, June 12, the Southern Indiana Builders Association (SIBA) is presenting the 71st annual Parade of Homes.  Twenty-two newly constructed homes in Evansville, Newburgh, Boonville, and Haubstadt will be showcased as area builders highlight the latest trends in craftsmanship and products.  

Saturdays & Sundays • 1:00-6:00pm
Mon, Wed, Thur, & Fri • 5:00-8:00pm
Closed Tuesday, June 7

Homes can be toured in person OR online!

As a long-time sponsor of the Parade, we at F.C. Tucker Emge love this event. Thinking about remodeling your current home? You’ll find plenty of professional resources along your parade route to help you become more familiar with the latest trends in finishes and design. Thinking of building? The Parade is a great way to speak with builders to find out which one best suits your situation and tastes.  On the other hand, maybe you just love houses and can’t stop looking at them, and that’s okay. We definitely understand.

With the homes on the Parade spread across a wide area, the map will come in handy when planning your route, which we recommend doing ahead of time with today’s gas prices. And when you are driving around, keep your eyes peeled for signs pointing you in the right direction.

The official 2022 Tour Magazines with descriptions of the homes and advertisements of the builders and suppliers are available at all of the homes as well as major sponsor locations.

Good Homes…Good Food

Tour 4 homes and enjoy
tasty food!

Of course, the best way to go on a tour is at dinner time when you can sample some great food from local establishments. The SIBA Chefs on Parade will kick off the Parade of Homes TONIGHT! In this exclusive event, sponsored by CenterPoint Energy, ticket holders get to visit 4 different Parade homes with food catered by 4 local dining establishments.  Limited tickets are available for only $30 and can be purchased online at the SIBA website. Enjoy great dishes provided by Pappa Bear’s Catering, Hometown Roots, La Campriana & The Wine Down. For tickets and more information, email Audra Kain at

To Shoe Or NOT To Shoe…

Yes, good shoes will take you good places, but once you’re there, it’s okay to take them off or cover them. Remember, the homes are new, and the builders and designers would love to keep their masterpieces in pristine showing condition. Shoe covers will be provided. In fact, grab a fresh pair at your first stop and then hang on to them for use at the other homes. Of course, wearing a pair of kicks that are easy to slip on and off will be easier on you. Just make sure you grab the right pair when you leave!

Be prepared to remove shoes or wear shoe covers to enter the homes.

And The Winners Are…

On Tuesday, June 7, winners of the various price range categories will be announced at the Parade banquet. You can vote for The People’s Choice Award, but be sure to do so early on before voting ends.
