Pasadena Showcase House of Design in 2021
It is enormously disappointing for us to have to announce that there will not be a Showcase House in 2021. The production of this event requires 12 - 24 months of advance planning. Given the uncertainties of this past year, we reluctantly made the difficult decision to forego a Showcase House for 2021. We are deeply grateful for your donations and ongoing support.
But there is light at the end of this long tunnel. Soon we will have some exciting news to announce, and at this point, we are hopeful that we will be able to have a traditional, in-person Showcase House in Spring 2022.
Hidden Oasis – 2019 Pasadena Showcase House of Design – California Waterscapes
Pasadena Showcase House of Design is the fundraiser produced by Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts to fund their music programs and award gifts and grants to other non-profit organizations to support their efforts. It is open for tours mid-April to mid-May.
What does it take to be a Showcase House? There is no ideal house that meets all the criteria; so, every year the advantages are weighed against the disadvantages of the properties available for that year. Some years we have a plethora from which to choose, and some years, well, there are fewer. Two staircases is at the top of the must-have list, a wide road for the shuttles, space for Shops, porta-potties, trash, etc. are the practicalities that influence the selection.
Sometimes there are grand mansions and other times charming homes on a smaller scale are chosen. No matter the square footage, each estate is renovated from top to bottom by leading designers using the latest concepts and materials. So, indulge your inner looky-loo. Take a look behind the gates and come have a good time. And, it doesn’t hurt that you’re helping support your community at the same time. What a deal!

They have provided paint, and that alone, is worthy of our deep gratitude because it is a generous contribution that makes a significant difference to this project.
Additionally they have helped to guide us about upcoming color trends from their mountains of research. We have also asked for their assistance in marketing the Showcase House and like good friends they always come through for us. And then when we said, "By the way, we need money too," they were there with a substantial check.
It is hard to know how to thank friends like this. In 2019 we commissioned this poster and presented it to Dunn-Edwards Paints at a special meeting of members and designers before the first tour of the 2019 Showcase House. It was a small gesture but full of sincere appreciation to try to express how important this relationship is to us. Their paint, their support, their expertise and their friendship are invaluable.

Shops at Showcase

There is literally something for everyone! A delightful part of the Showcase experience is visiting the Shops at Showcase.
These shops are made up of merchants who have been carefully selected to offer guests a variety of merchandise with a broad range of price points. The shops often include French linens from Provence, handcrafted designer jewelry, a selection of delectable edibles for the gourmet and innovative home décor.
The shops are a great place to buy for holidays, birthdays and other special celebrations. Guests appreciate that 25% of the purchase price is considered a charitable contribution. PSHA provides guests with receipts for tax purposes.
By purchasing items from this fascinating marketplace, part of the proceeds will fund programs that PSHA underwrites. The success of the Showcase House has enabled us to make cumulative donations of more than $23 million to support music and the arts through the years.
Each year, 20 to 35 vendors are invited to participate, depending on the amount of available space. There is a participation fee depending on the booth size. Depending on the venue, the Shops at Showcase can be in one large tent or individual festival tents. PSHA arranges for and pays for the tents, utilities, security, and staffs the checkout booth. PSHA accepts all credit cards, debit cards and cash.
We truly appreciate the efforts of the vendors who work with us on the Shops at Showcase!
Currently applications are not being accepted due to the pandemic.
Blasts from the past. We’ve uploaded the Programs from past Showcase Houses. Feel free to browse. And, the transformation videos that are shown on the shuttles are posted here, too. Get some popcorn and settle in. It’s a fascinating look back.
