Last month, over 30,000 Manitobans visited 130 show homes on display during the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association’s 2024 Spring Parade of Homes.  This unique showcase provides Manitobans with the chance to see the widest variety of new show homes anywhere in Canada for new home buyers.  This year, we were proud to showcase 30 different builders and highlight 26 of Manitoba’s newest neighborhoods. 

While the MHBA’s Parade of Homes receives a lot attention while they are in full swing, it’s important to remember that the show homes featured in the Parade are open year-round.  The spring and summer months provide a great opportunity for new home buyers to visit show homes in between the Spring and Fall Parades.  Traffic will be a little lighter and parking a little easier to find at show homes during this time of year.  Visiting during the late spring and summer months also allows you to see many of the home features in full operation. Just because our Spring Parade has concluded, it doesn’t mean your chance to visit your favorite show home has ended as well. 

Manitoba’s Spring Parade of Homes, along with the Winnipeg Renovation Show and the Winnipeg Home and Garden Show, are spectacular showcase events for the Manitoba residential construction industry in the late Winter and early Spring as people prepare and plan for the upcoming construction season.  The MHBA’s two Parade of Homes are signature events for the MHBA’s home building members, allowing new home buyers a unique chance to see the latest in new home options and the newest trends in home style and design.  Manitoba’s Parade of Homes continues to be the largest parades in Canada. 

So where can you find information on show home locations and hours?  You can visit the MHBA website at and click on the “Parade of Homes” tab.  There you can find all of the Parade of Home show homes with contact information to set up a private viewing as well as a digital version of the most recent Parade magazine.   Show homes featured in the MHBA Parade of Homes are open for business year-round for your viewing and visiting pleasure.  The spring and summer months are a great time to visit these show homes to see what’s new in home design.  Our members look forward to your visit!
