Holiday House Tour: Tour Tips

by Kate Walker

‘Twas the night before Holiday House Tour, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that the guests soon would be there…

Station Gallery’s 30th annual Holiday House Tour, our largest annual fundraiser, is right around the corner! This is the perfect event for guests who are looking for holiday décor ideas from our talented floral and design partners.

This year, Station Gallery is celebrating 30 years of our Holiday House Tour by adding an all new V.I.P. night to elevate the experience of our guests. The Friday V.I.P Night offers an exclusive first look at the gorgeous homes on the tour and choice of hand-crafted gifts at SG’s Holiday Market.

If this is your first time joining us, or you need a refresher, follow this Holiday House Tour Guide and Tour Tips to learn more about this beloved holiday event.

Holiday House Tour Guide:

  • Tour-goers are given a passport with our eight tour stop locations and are encouraged to create their own tour route around Durham Region.
  • Tour-goers will make their way through private homes that have been decorated by our talented floral and design partners.
  • The fun continues at Station Gallery where we will be hosting a Holiday Market that highlights local makers and artisans, as well as a silent auction with incredible prizes donated by our generous sponsors.
  • Station Gallery will be open from 11:00am – 5:00pm on Saturday, an hour later than the house tour to ensure that all tour goers will have a chance to shop at the Holiday Market.

Holiday House Tour Tips:

To ensure that you have the best experience while visiting homes on Holiday House Tour, please follow these important tour tips:

  • Map your own route! Begin at any of the homes and tour in any order.
  • Homes open at 10:00am and close at 4:00pm on Saturday. Entrance into the homes will end at 3:45pm.
  • Show your ticket at each stop. Your ticket will be hole-punched at the entrance of each home and at Station Gallery.
  • Do not park in front of the homes or driveways. If you are being chauffeured to the homes, please have your driver drop you off at the nearest street corner to keep traffic flowing smoothly.
  • Please expect that there might be line-ups. Your patience is appreciated.
  • For your comfort, wear footwear that slips on and off easily at each home. Shoe bags will be provided at the homes.
  • Personal photography is not permitted in the homes. A link to our official photos will be shared with ticketholders after the event.
  • Food and drink are not permitted in the homes.
  • Alcohol is not permitted on the tour.
  • Ticketholders under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Before, during, or after you’re done touring, drop by Station Gallery’s Holiday Market, which will be open from 11:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday.
  • Please enjoy the tour in a responsible and respectful manner, and be sure to have fun!

Make this event a part of your holiday traditions with a presentation of stunning home design, stylish seasonal décor trends, and artisanal, hand-crafted gifts. Station Gallery looks forward to spreading the holiday joy with you this season!
