The Joy Home Tour
The JOY Home Tour is a self-guided tour of carefully selected homes in Guelph, beautifully decorated with seasonal décor thanks to the help of many generous local businesses.
The tour has become an annual tradition for many and welcomes approximately 1,600 people from all over Southwestern Ontario.
This year we celebrate our 15th Annual JOY Home Tour! “Celebrate JOY” is this years theme. HOPE House offers community members the opportunity to choose joy in spite of the difficult circumstances that many are in by acknowledging the inherent dignity and worth of every human being and treating everyone in a compassionate, dignified manner.
The 15th Annual JOY Home Tour features:
Exclusive Pre-Tour Event and VIP Champagne Reception
Presented by PARAGON KITCHENS! This event has traditionally been the kick-off night for our tour; the evening where we open the homes to participating businesses, sponsors, homeowners and the JOY tour team to get a glimpse of the wonder they have created and we would love for you to join us!
To avoid any tour weekend crowds and connect with the businesses and homeowners, we are offering a limited number of tickets for the pre-tour held on Thursday, November 14th. Tickets are $80 and include a VIP Champagne reception (7:30-10pm) to be held at Paragon Kitchens’ location at 330 Laird Road, Guelph. As in previous years the pre-tour is self-guided so you can begin at any of our tour homes and if you do not get all of the homes visited on the pre-tour evening, your ticket is valid throughout the tour weekend.
The Candlelight Tour and Daytime Tour
Held on Friday November 15th, starting at 5pm, this night included in the $50 tour ticket, is a wonderful opportunity to tour the homes and HOPE House and experience the warmth of the season lit only by candlelight! This night you will enjoy special nibblies and treats in each of our homes lovingly shared by local food businesses. And if you don’t get to all the locations on this night, you can finish them off during the daytime tour!
The Daytime tour, on Saturday November 16th, starting at 10am included in the $50 tour ticket, gives our tour goers the chance to view each of our 2019 homes and HOPE House while enjoying tasty treats along the way.
We have been blessed to have the support of numerous local businesses as they contribute to the tour in many ways such as adding beautiful, seasonal décor and florals to our homes or providing wonderful food for sampling.
