It's that time of year again: Homearama 2018
Every summer in the Louisville area, people are able to take tours of custom-built new homes for about two weeks. This is called Homearama, a tradition that dates back to 1968. During this two week time period, people are able to take tours of these fully-furnished homes that feature modern and updated interior design, building trends, and technology.
This year, Homearama will run from July 14-29 and will be at Catalpa Farms, which is a new sustainable development with over 200 acres of land. It is a conservation community with abundant preserved open green space. There are trails, lakes, and community gardens. And soon, the neighborhood will also feature a dog park, trails, clubhouse, community center, a playground, and more. Catalpa Farms is technically located in Fisherville, Kentucky.
When you are at Homearama, you really are seeing the best of the best in today’s trends. The in-home theatre rooms, fitness areas, outdoor living spaces, it’s all top notch. While it all may seem overwhelming to some, you can at least gather some ideas for your current home or your future home you are planning in your head. I encourage you to take notes while you are there. What do you like? Are there certain designs in the kitchen that stand out to you? Do you want to decorate your outdoor patio like house number three? Make note of these things and make a return trip if you want to.
As far as getting tickets goes, you can purchase them when you arrive. The cost is $10 per person, and children 12 and under are free with an adult. Keep in mind that you can only pay by using cash or check. How does a buy one get one free coupon sound? Head on over to Facebook.com/
Don’t worry about bringing money for parking. That is free. However, there are concessions sold on site. You may need to bring money for that, especially if you bring kids with you and their attention span starts to fade.
As I said before, the show runs from July 14-29. Here are the times each day. The ticket gate closes one hour prior to the listed closing time.
Monday-Friday: 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Sunday: 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m
Don’t miss out on Homearama 2018. And be sure to visit the furniture sale that will take place on July 30 at Catalpa Farms from 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., where you may be able to purchase some of your favorite pieces of furniture that you saw while touring these homes.
