The Pasadena Showcase House of Design is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful Showcase Houses in the country. Each year a magnificent estate in the Pasadena area is selected as the Pasadena Showcase House of Design. The property is completely renovated by leading interior and exterior designers who utilize the latest concepts in design, new products, and technology. Showcase is open to the public for four weeks during April and May. Approximately 35,000 visitors tour the property each year and visit The Shops at Showcase and The Restaurant at Showcase.
The success of the Pasadena Showcase House of Design has enabled Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA) to make cumulative donations of over $19 million in support of the arts and provide opportunities for over 350,000 young people to discover, enjoy and study classical music. The programs funded by PSHA have enriched the lives of countless people and brought a lasting legacy to the community.
