The Parade of Playhouses is an amazing annual fundraiser to support New Mexico Appleseed’s critical work addressing poverty in New Mexico. Each year the best and brightest design professionals and builders in the state are invited to create the most imaginative and over-the-top playhouses ever seen. These playhouses will be on display for several weeks at the Albuquerque BioPark Zoo and will be visited by over 50,000 people, which will culminate with a sell-out gala event on September 23, 2016 with 700 industry leaders and potential buyers in attendance. This year we have added on a “Parade of Pethouses”. A few very special, designed dog and cat houses will be available for auction.
