Tickets for the Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary Club’s 23rd annual Holiday House Tour are selling briskly – and some time slots are already sold out.

On the popular tour, patrons can see “six beautiful seasonally decorated homes, visit local historic and cultural sites, sample complimentary tastings from three featured wineries and enjoy specially priced luncheons and dinners,” organizers said.

Interior design, architecture and seasonal decorations are brought together each year for the Rotary fundraiser. All proceeds support NOTL Rotary’s local and international charitable causes.

Tickets for the general day tour will provide entry to all six homes any time from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2 and Saturday, Dec. 3.

Early-bird tickets are now on sale for $40. After Nov. 18, prices rise to $45. Eventbrite fees are extra for all tickets.

The six homes featured on the tour are at: 15526 Niagara Parkway, 265 Ricardo St., 28 Cottage St., 83 Shaw’s Lane, 95 Wall Rd. and 1354 York Rd.

This year, the Rotary Club will provide hourly updates on lineup wait times via social media.  

As well, several participating sites around town, including the NOTL Museum, McFarland House, Pumphouse Arts Centre and RiverBrink Art Museum, will be decorated for the holidays.

Peller is the platinum sponsor for the tour and also will showcase its various properties around town, including Riverbend, which is new on the tour this year. 

And once again, the McArthur family will open their John Street manor for the “A Merry and Bright Christmas” evening tour.  

Separate tickets are required for the McArthur tour.

The Rotary Club said the McArthur estate includes an “enchanted tour of the grounds and first and second floor of the house, seasonal lights, live music, complimentary sparkling wine and hot cider, cookies, Santa and his elves, the Canine Manor, the reindeer stables, and more.”

The McArthur tours will have four, one-hour reserved time slots between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 and 3.

Tickets are limited and always sell quickly, organizers said.

Adults are $60, children five to 12 are $10 and children under five are free. Eventbrite fees are extra.

Tickets to both tours are sold online only on the Rotary Club’s website, niagaraonthelakerotary.ca/page/holiday-house-tour.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own masks and to follow the latest COVID protocols.
