Get in the holiday spirit and see how local residents deck their halls!

The 15th Annual Holiday Tour of Homes, presented by the Junior League of Columbus, will take place Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 12-5 pm in the prestigious suburb of Upper Arlington. Come tour seven incredibly decorated homes while enjoying small bites by local restaurants and bakeries. There is even one special surprise for all the guests that you won’t want to miss!

Check-in and day of door sales will be available at any of the seven homes on tour. You’ll collect an event magazine with a map at your first stop and work your way through Upper Arlington on this holiday-inspired and magical tour. Please note, tickets increase on tour day to $35 per person. We recommend purchasing your ticket online. Cash tickets are available on Saturday, but only at the following two addresses listed below.

Tour Destination Addresses

Come Hungry!

Complimentary savory and sweet bites are served in every home. Also, a special surprise this year, one of the homes will offer a free wine pour!

Attire

At each home you will be offered shoe booties or you can opt to take off your shoes and carry them until you exit. Shoes with laces or heels are not recommended. Shoes that slide on and off easily are the best option.

Parking

While some homes are close together, you should plan to drive to almost all the homes. For ease of parking, we recommend car-pooling with other attendees in your group.

Street parking is available for all homes, with the exception of the home on Tremont Road. For this tour destination, we recommend you park on either North Parkway Drive or South Parkway Drive and walk to the bottom of those streets, turn right, and cross Tremont Road to this tour destination (a map will be provided in your program).

Please also note there is a public walking path that will lead you to/from Fairfax Road and Clairmont Road. It runs between 4091 & 4103 Fairfax Road and 4110 & 4114 Clairmont Road. Signage will be placed on tour day to outline the entry/exit points of this path. We do recommend that you park on either Fairfax or Clairmont and utilize the path to see the three homes on these two streets. There is more parking available on Fairfax Road, but you can only park on one side of the street.

Under no circumstances can tour attendees park in the driveways of tour destinations. Please plan accordingly.

Giving Tree

*NEW TO THIS YEAR’S TOUR* At the Junior League of Columbus (JLC) we are passionate women building stronger communities. This year, the JLC is launching a new Signature Project that helps support youth aging out of the foster care system. During the tour we will have our inaugural JLC Giving Tree. With each monetary donation of $10 or more, an ornament will be placed on the tree. Our goal is to decorate the tree throughout tour day.  The giving tree will be located at 4099 Clairmont Road. For more information about the new signature project, please click here.

Proceeds from the Holiday Tour of Homes support the programs and mission of the Junior League of Columbus, which looks to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women and improve communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Locally, the Junior League of Columbus, is best known for its annual distribution of thousands of school-supply filled backpacks to children in need throughout Central Ohio. The League also supports the Kelton House Museum & Garden and its ongoing program of house tours, special events, and educational opportunities; including its youth age program surrounding the home’s history as a stop on the Underground Railroad.
