About this Event

Join us from 12:00-5:00 PM on Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15 for the 57th annual Fan District Association Holiday House Tour. Your passport will allow you entrance to 9 of the most stylish and elegant homes in the Fan.

The Holiday House Tour is the Fan District Association’s annual fundraising event with proceeds benefiting the neighborhood through community grants. Every year, the Fan District Association awards more than $20,000 to local organizations that are making a difference in the lives of our residents.

The tour is walk-friendly, but two trolleys will be circling the Fan from noon – 5 p.m. each day for those who wish to ride. The trolleys stop near all the homes and the following Hospitality Centers:

  • Retreat Doctors’ Hospital at 2621 Grove Avenue
  • Commonwealth Senior Living at 501 N. Allen Ave
  • The Fan District Association office at 208 Strawberry Street

House Rules - out of consideration for those who have so graciously opened their homes to the Tour:

  • High-heeled shoes are not allowed as they could damage historic wooden floors
  • Please turn off cell phones inside the homes
  • No smoking, eating or drinking inside the homes
  • No strollers or backpacks
  • Please do not touch furniture or decorative objects
  • Wheelchairs cannot be accommodated

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a printed confirmation to pick up my online ticket?

You will receive a "voucher" for a ticket passport when you purchase online. While your email or text confirmation is most helpful, we will also have a record of all purchase transactions at each Hospitality Center just in case, where you will redeem your voucher for your ticket passport the day of the tour.

Is my ticket good for both days or just one?

You may begin and end your tour any time during Saturday or Sunday or BOTH! And there is no particular order you must follow to visit the homes. Your ticket booklet will be marked as you make your way through the tour.

Will refunds be given in the case of inclement weather?

Each of our homeowners have put a great deal of time and effort getting their homes in tip-top shape to share with all of you. As this is the Fan District Association's major fundraiser for the year, the Tour goes on rain or shine with a no refund policy.

Can I bring my small child on the tour without a ticket?

We do allow chlldren to come on the tour if they're interested but they must also have a ticket. As we run this event as our major fundraiser, even our volunteers must purchase a ticket.

Can I give my uncompleted ticket to someone else to use?

No problem - and what a nice gesture! Any unused portions of your ticket may be "gifted" to someone else to complete the tour.
