About The 2023 Home Tour

 

The homes on tour this year represent exquisite examples of some of the Early 20th Century's most popular architectural styles. Included in this year's collection will be an extraordinary Jacobethan Revival Manor House, an Italian Renaissance confection with Colonial influences, a stately Eclectic Style home with Mediterranean and Renaissance elements, and more. As this year's planning continues, several additional houses will be added to the mix.

 

Guests can travel between all tour stops on air-conditioned mini-coaches staffed by neighborhood tour guides who’ll share interesting facts and details about The District. Those interested in a more-vintage mode of transportation can amble down the avenue in horse-drawn carriages. Both the coaches and carriages are provided with our compliments, at no charge.

 

When it’s time for a break, relax and refresh in Savage Park with freshly prepared food and beverages served all throughout the weekend from an assortment of festive Food Trucks offering a variety of menus, including Cousins Maine Lobster and Kona IceBeverage service will include soft drinks, beer, and wine.

 

On the main stage in Savage Park, there will be live entertainment throughout the weekend, performed by area talent. Along the median in front of the park, guests can browse the displays of local artisans who will be showcasing their wares, everything from artwork and custom candles to handmade jewelry, pottery, and handicrafts.

Back Again!
Our Mother’s Day Brunch
Will Be Ala Carte In The Park

Screen Shot 2021-04-30 at 3.16.34 PM.png

For the first time in the history of the Home Tour, last year's Mother's Day Brunch was held as an ala carte event. And we're continuing that trend for 2023. Instead of limiting guests to one prix-fixe menu provided by a single food vendor, guests can choose from a wide variety of ala carte menu selections provided by an assortment of food vendors. Pricing is also ala carte so you can brunch as little or as much as you'd like. And there are no advance reservations required. Just come and enjoy whenever and however you please, starting at 11AM on Sunday.

Refreshments At Savage Park

Some of the city's most popular Food Trucks will be In Savage Park all weekend serving up a delicious assortment of ala carte delicacies for the enjoyment of our guests, including Cousins Maine Lobster and Kona Ice. Ala carte food and beverages will be available on Saturday from 11AM to 6PM and on Sunday from 11AM to 6PM.

 

Entertainment In Savage Park

 

Throughout the weekend, we will feature a variety of musical entertainment on the main stage in Savage Park. We invite you to take a break anytime during the tour to relax with a cold drink and a snack under the Live Oak trees while you enjoy the scheduled performances.
