Tour Details

Live tour tickets include a self-guided tour of five fabulously decorated homes in Greater Akron on Sunday, Dec. 4, from 1 to 5 p.m. Virtual tour tickets include an intimate video tour of seven homes that you can view as many times as you'd like for the entire weekend of Dec. 10-11. 

Among the homes showcased on this year's tour are:

  • A 1948 Georgian colonial with original oak floors and a finished basement featuring a bar and home theater in West Akron
  • A 1967 ranch-style home renovated to an open floor plan and impeccably decorated on the eastern edge of Fairlawn
  • A 1953 mid-century modern home in West Akron with wide floor-to-ceiling windows that provide light and warmth to the space year-round
  • A 1926 Cotswold Tudor in the heart of Fairlawn Heights with arches throughout and a beautifully renovated kitchen
  • A 1922 Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired bungalow with original hardwood floors and distinctive Craftsman nooks, built-ins and charm in Highland Square

Following the live tour, sponsors are also invited to the private Patron Party, where they will enjoy catered food and beverages.
