Enjoy samples from 5 mobile eateries and tour two beautiful homes September 11 from 6-9pm at the Parade of Homes™ To Go Premier Night! This is your opportunity to taste samples from some of the Tri-Cities’ favorite chefs and view participating Parade homes nearly a week before they open to the general public. Best of all 100% of net proceeds from the event will be donated to charities including the Wishing Star Foundation!
Due to the supply chain disruption caused by COVID-19 along with a shortage of available homes throughout the Tri-Cities, the number of builders able to enter a home in this year’s Parade has been dramatically reduced. Because of the limited number of homes participating, there just aren’t enough kitchens to go around to be able to offer the annual Chefs on Parade™.
Parade To Go will be a fun and delicious event to fill the gap, but it will NOT be the same event as Chefs on Parade™. Food samples will be offered at the Bethel Church parking lot, which is a very short drive from the participating homes. We encourage attendees to be prepared to tailgate or bring their blankets and camp chairs to enjoy their samples picnic style on the Bethel Church lawn. There won’t be live music or alcoholic beverages. The focus will be on the incredible food and the gorgeous homes.
Parade To Go is a drop in style event so there is no pressure to arrive at a certain time. Attendees are welcome to start their tour whenever is convenient for them beginning at 6pm. We do recommend arriving by 8pm to ensure you have time to partake in all the food and homes before the event closes at 9pm.
Parade of Homes™ To Go will feature some attendee favorites from past Chefs on Parade™ events as well as an exciting newcomer. The participating eateries include Doggie Style Gourmet, Fast & Curryous, Frost Me Sweet’s mobile dessert truck, Hot Mess Burgers & Fries, and Taqueria Chilisco.
Attendees will be able to vote for their favorite bite of the night. The eatery that receives the most votes will designate a second charity to receive the event proceeds.
