  • At least two people will be present within the home when you arrive to help maintain social distancing and to adhere to the current maximum group occupancy ordinance

Do all neighborhoods have parade homes in them?

During some Parades there will be neighborhoods featured without homes to tour.  We encourage you to drive through these neighborhoods.  They will be noted in the Parade magazine.  Representatives will be on hand to answer your questions about Alachua County’s newest neighborhoods and the available lots to build on.

Where can I get a Parade Book?

Parade Books will be available at every one of the parade homes with copies at the BANCF office as well. It is also featured on our website. Floor plans, renderings and features of the homes are included in the Parade Book.

Is there a cost to attend the Show?

No, this year the Parade of Homes is complimentary, thanks to the generosity of the Parade builders.

Where do I start the Parade of Homes tour?

Start your tour at your choice of any of the Parade Neighborhoods. Pick a neighborhood close to you and then you can map your own route that is most convenient and visit the homes at your own pace.

How do I know which neighborhoods are participating and where can I find them?

Neighborhood locations can be found on the map in the Parade Book or online at BANCF.com.

Are the homes showcased in the Parade of Homes for sale?
