Salt Lake Parade of Homes Presents
Last year, the Salt Lake Parade of Homes™ cooked up an incredible idea to showcase some of the best kitchens in the valley. The Chefs on Parade™ was born, and boy was it popular. We have excellent news: It’s back again this year!
Foodies and home admirers of all ages can enjoy appetizers served fresh from local chefs at various locations. The event doubles as an exclusive first look at Parade homes prior to the official opening of the Salt Lake Parade of Homes. Delicious food and gorgeous homes make for a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t want to miss. Space is limited, so jump on those tickets! Chef and location information is below.
Note: There is no particular order of the Parade, and we encourage attendees to start their course by whichever home is most convenient.
