Homerama Delayed until June 2012

imageThe TBA ( Tidewater Builders Association announced)  that it is pushing back the dates of its spring Homearama showcase of new homes.

The event will now be held from June 16 to July 1, 2012 at Culpepper Landing in Chesapeake. The show was originally scheduled for May.

The event is being delayed to give builders more time to complete their homes. So far, eight builders have signed up to construct homes for the show.

 

With the spring show moving back to June, the organization will have only four months to prepare for the October 2012 Homearama show, which is planned for Norfolk’s East Beach community.

Twenty-eight years ago Hampton Roads builders took a chance and signed on for the first Homearama.

That event, held in Bayberry Woods in Chesapeake, started a tradition that annually draws thousands of visitors from across the region.

The event, which showcases the latest in architecture, home trends and designs, has its roots in Chesapeake. The show has found a home there 15 times during the history of Homearama.

This year is no exception: Culpepper Landing is in the heart of Deep Creek, nestled alongside the Great Dismal Swamp.
