Image for Ninth Annual Artisan Home Tour by Parade of Homes Features 17 Incredible New Homes and 6 Remodeled Homes

Housing First Minnesota’s ticketed, high-end home event, the Artisan Home Tour, is set to open for its ninth season on June 10. This year, the tour features 17 incredible new homes open from 12-6 p.m. on June 10-12, 17-19, and 24-26. Plus, six artisan-quality remodeled homes will be open the final weekend, June 24-26.

Homes that are showcased on the Artisan Home Tour have each been designed and constructed with the highest level of architectural integrity, top-quality craftsmanship and exceptionally high finish level. These multi-million-dollar residences from the region’s most exclusive homebuilders and remodelers also feature today’s most popular designs, materials, accessories and colors.


An all-access ticket  or a single-visit ticket is required for entry into the homes. All-access tickets can be purchased at area Bachman’s at a discounted rate of $20. They can also be purchased online at or in the Artisan Home Tour app for $25, or at the door of any home on the tour for $30. Discount coupons are also available at all area Holiday Stationstores for redemption online or at any Artisan home. For those interested in just visiting one or two homes, single-visit tickets are available for $5 at the door and online. Visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time to reduce contact at the homes.

Partial proceeds from the Artisan Home Tour help to support the work of the Housing First Minnesota Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization composed of Housing First Minnesota members and supporters who contribute their time, materials and expertise to help the Foundation build and remodel safe housing for Minnesota’s homeless, veterans and others in need. Recent projects include an apartment renovation for women going through addiction recovery and new homes designated as transitional housing for veterans in need.

A Variety of Styles

From modern minimalism to historic Tudor and everything in between, the Artisan homes run the entire gamut of styles. Designed to make life comfortable and gracious, Artisan homes include details and features that assure each family’s lifestyle is at center stage. High-end kitchens showcase top-of-the-line appliances and unique custom finishes. The latest technology is a core feature in many of the homes, including several that are fully automated. Indoor to outdoor transitions are thoughtfully planned with features like screen porches, terraces, outdoor kitchens and more.

Produced by Housing First Minnesota

As with all Parade of Homes events, every home on the tour has been built by a member of Housing First Minnesota. Each member must sign a code of ethics and has access to valuable resources and information to support their business.
