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, the 14th Annual JOY Home Tour has selected “Choosing Joy” as its 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 14th Annual JOY Home Tour features:

An Exclusive Pre-Tour Event (Thursday, Nov 15): $79 (available online only)

– We have a limited amount of tickets available for the Pre-Tour. You will have the opportunity to tour the homes without the crowds and enjoy a Champagne Reception at Granite Homes.

A Daytime Tour (Saturday, Nov 17) $45 in stores and $49 online
