Residents welcome guests for 35th annual tour of historical, contemporary houses

Ancaster News

Tickets are now on sale for the 35th annual Holiday House Tour and Craft Sale, sponsored by St. James Anglican Church in Dundas.

The committee works throughout the year to develop an interesting, enjoyable and enlightening tour of historical and contemporary homes in the Dundas area.

This year’s event takes place on Saturday, Dec. 1 from noon to 5 p.m. with the craft show running from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

As well as homes, the tour features a formal tea in the parlour at the church, 137 Melville St. Holiday festivities will also be accompanied by local artisans offering unique hand-crafted items for purchase in the Dickens’ Lane juried craft show and sale, and baked goods for sale in Santa’s Kitchen. In the church sanctuary - which has art displays changed on a monthly basis - the display will be paintings by Guennadi Kalinine.

Barb Busing, co-chair of the tour, said Dundas is fortunate to have homeowners who respond in such a positive manner for the tour

“These wonderful homeowners are decorating their homes with a warm and welcoming atmosphere that everyone will enjoy,” she said. “We appreciate their efforts and the assistance of local merchants, florists and decorators who share their talents to make the day memorable for both the hosts and our guests.”

This year, the tour features five magnificent homes and benefits the outreach program of the church. Money raised supports a variety of local and international programs, including Dundas Community Services, St. Matthews House, Interval House, and other local needs.

The $20 ticket provides access to the five homes, a visit to Dicken’s Village at the Cattel Centre in Dundas, the art display, tea and a visit to the artisans on Dickens’ Lane at the church. Tickets are available in a variety of locations, including the church office. Further information can be obtained by calling 905-627-1424.
