The fall Parade of Homes is just around the corner! From Sept 12 to Oct 4, you can visit some of the most beautiful homes throughout the Twin Cities area. Whether you’re looking to buy, remodel, or build a new home in the future, the Parade of Homes is a great place to find inspiration for a future home project.
This year, the Parade of Homes is featured 355 new homes and 43 remodeled homes. This is our guide to the homes that we have featured in the home parade. Here are some of the homes where you can visit Sustainable 9.
5620 Old Market Road
Located in Shorewood, Minnesota, is our four-bedroom, four-bathroom Dream Home. Featured as home number #33 on the Parade of Homes, it’s one of four Dream Homes that the parade is featuring this year. The school district for this two-level home is Minnetonka, making it even more appealing because Minnetonka is one of the best school districts in the state. This home is 2,957 square feet finished and is full of all types of modern designs. Included in this dream home is an in-ground pool.
One of the defining features of this home is the 1.1-acre lot that it sits on and all of the entertaining space that it offers in the backyard. The pool that the home has is 18 feet by 14 feet, and the yard features a wood fence so that you can experience complete privacy in your backyard. Additionally, there is a great patio space for bonfires and cooking out on the grill, both of which are perfect things to do throughout the beautiful seasons in Minnesota.
This home is definitely a must-see on the parade this fall. Don’t wait till the spring parade because it might be sold soon.
5721 Abbott Avenue, S.
Our second home in this year’s Fall Parade of Homes is located in Edina. This home is exactly 3,000 square feet. Furnished with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a two-car garage, this home is perfect for a small to medium-sized family.
The home features a modern design that makes it stand out among some of the other homes on this parade. It’s a great home to tour if you’re interested in some of the modern design trends among newer homes. It offers a very open floor plan, especially between the kitchen and the living room. Large windows bring in tons of natural light so that you can fully enjoy the space and it what it has to offer. Another feature in the living room is a free-standing fireplace that is perfect for cold evenings or cozy days at home.
The basement has its own bar for entertaining guests and enjoying evenings in. The master bathroom is complete with a walk-in glass shower and soaker tub, as well as a double vanity. One added bonus feature is a personal sauna that is part of the master bath. There won’t be any fighting over bathrooms in this home because there’s something for every member of the family!
The bedrooms in the home are large and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and large windows for lots of natural throughout the day.

Get the Book
The parade of homes book is available in a digital format through the Parade of Homes website, or you can find hard copies in Holiday Station stores after Aug 31. The guidebook and the remodels showcase are both great to use as sources of inspiration or to help you find the homes that you want to visit during the Parade of Homes.
Make a Plan
Before the first weekend of the parade comes (Sept 12), be sure to have a plan of when you’re going to go to the parade. You’ll also want to plan what homes you’ll be stopping at. Additionally, due to COVID-19, you’ll need to schedule your home tour. That way, you can maintain all of the safety precautions that are important during the pandemic.
Take Pictures and Notes
Pictures and notes are going to be your best friend as you go throughout this tour. They’ll help you to remember everything you see and hopefully help you to know what things you can and should apply to your future home project. Whether you’re looking to build, remodel, or buy an already built new home in the future, there’s a lot that you can learn from observing some of the homes that are already on the market.
A bonus is taking knowledge of the interior decorations throughout your home tour. By taking pictures and notes, you might be able to find some new furnishings or other fun things that you can add to your current or future home.
Enjoy as much as You Can
The Parade of Homes is really about enjoying yourself and the homes you view as much as possible. Even if you only make it out to see two or three homes out of the hundreds on the parade. Enjoy every part of it!
We look forward to seeing you on this year’s Fall Parade of Homes, MN!
