It's time to start sneaking around other peoples houses. Well, it's not really sneaking, but I have to tell you I sometimes feel like that when I attend the annual Iron County Home Builders Association Festival of Homes. I mean, they want me to come look around, but I always feel a little sheepish. But every year I come away inspired and impressed by the tremendous properties on display

This year looks to be no different.

The Festival of homes is set to kick off on Friday, September 1st and will run for two consecutive weekends. The Festival homes will be open from Noon until 8PM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will also be open on Labor Day, Monday, September 4th.

During the Festival of Homes, attendees can tour the featured homes and gather inspiration for their own home projects. This event is organized to highlight the latest trends in home design, interior decoration, landscaping, energy efficiency, and technology integration. Visitors can explore a variety of architectural styles, floor plans, and innovative features that have been incorporated into the showcased homes.

In addition to being a source of inspiration for potential homeowners and those interested in home design, the Festival of Homes can also serve as a platform for networking among professionals in the construction and real estate industries. Builders and vendors involved in the event can connect with potential clients, share their expertise, and promote their services.

In addition to the home itself, Festival visitors will also be able to visit with vendors in the garage of each home to get information and inspiration on home improvement projects, or services to help visitors explore home ownership opportunities.

A tip for those planning to attend the Festival is to wear comfortable shoes. You will be asked to remove your shoes at most if not all of the homes so make sure they slip on and off easily. Some homes may have booties available to place over your shoes.

There is some common courtesy that the builders ask of Festival visitors. If a room is roped off, please don't enter that room. Please don't bring large bags in to the homes and please don't sit on any furniture or turn on water faucets or showers.

Tickets are required for visitors age three and above. The cost is $14 and tickets can be purchased at State Bank of Southern Utah locations (except on Sundays) or Coldwell Banker Advantage at 26 North Main in Cedar City. Tickets will not be available at the homes. You can also purchase tickets and get more information on line at

So, spend a weekend, or two, seeing some of the most gorgeous homes in the area. You don't even need to sneak around.
