2020 Greater Iowa City Area HBA Parade of Homes Moved to August

The popular annual Greater Iowa City Area HBA Parade of Homes, typically held in June, will be the first two weekends of August this year. The move was made due to continued COVID-19 coronavirus concerns in Johnson County and surrounding areas.

Specific dates and times for the 53rd Parade of Homes are:

Saturday, Aug. 1: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday, Aug. 2: Noon – 5 p.m.
Tuesday, Aug. 4: 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Thursday, Aug. 6: 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Saturday, Aug. 8: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday, Aug. 9: Noon – 5 p.m.

The 23rd Remodelers Parade dates and times are:

Saturday, Aug. 1: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday, Aug. 2: Noon – 5 p.m.

“There’s still a demand to see what’s new in designs, materials and more. We’re confident that by August we can safely hold the Parade of Homes and are looking at many possibilities on how to accomplish this,” said 2020 Parade of Homes Committee Chair Mitchell Manning of Sobaski Abbey Carpet & Floor. “A fantastic new feature already planned as part of this year’s parade is a virtual tour – sponsored by MidAmerican Energy – to be released following the parade’s conclusion.”

More details will be available during the coming months at parade website iowacityhomes.thegazette.com and on Facebook at Iowa City Area HBA Parade of Homes.

The parade is a fantastic opportunity for home buyers, dreamers and those needing remodeling done to see quality-built homes and gain knowledge about current construction techniques and trends in home building and renovation.
