About this Event

Visit a festive array of decorated Essex area homes to kindle Christmas cheer, while helping to support the Child & Family Agency of Southeastern CT. Now in its 15th year the Essex Auxiliary Biennial Holiday House Tour has become a beloved and anticipated staple of the Town of Essex's holiday season.

Visit seven architecturally unique homes on the tour in any order and revel in the beauty and holiday cheer. In addition, the Essex Historical Society’s Pratt House Museum and the Connecticut River Museum, both decorated for the season, will be open to visitors and are included on the tour.
