[/twocol_one][twocol_one_last]We hope you’ll join us for our Annual Holiday Parlor Tour! On Sunday, December 13, eleven beautiful homes will be decorated in their finest for the holiday season. A true St. Louis holiday tradition, our home tour is a unique annual event showcasing one of the largest collections of Victorian homes in the nation.


The tour begins at the Park House, located at the corner of Mississippi and Lafayette Avenues. You will pick up your tickets and tour book there.

Amenities include complimentary carriage rides, a trolley between tour homes, live music, strolling carolers, and Santa. Neighborhood shops and restaurants will be open, with many offering treats and discounts.

The tour is conducted as a self-guided, open house format: attendees are welcome to visit homes in any order at any time during tour hours. If you’d like to see all of the tour homes, please allow at least three hours. Our Holiday Parlor Tour features only the first floor of each home. All homes have several stairs leading to the entrance; we regret that we are not wheelchair accessible. A free trolley will be running in a loop around the neighborhood to save you a few extra steps between homes.

Refreshments will be available at the newly renovated Kern Pavilion (formerly known as “the Boathouse”) in Lafayette Park, as well as in neighborhood establishments.

Tickets cost $20 in Advance, $25 Day of the Tour, and children under 12 are Free. Tickets are non-refundable. The tour is held rain or shine. Advance tickets must be picked up on Tour Day at the Park House – we do not mail paper tickets. Online ticket sales end at 5:00 PM on December 12, 2015. Purchase your advance tickets in person with cash or check at the following businesses: Clementine’s Naughty & Nice CreameryForrest Gallery, Four Muddy Paws, Lafayette Square Chiropractic CentreLaredo on Lafayette SquareLooking Glass Designs, Square One Brewery & Distillery, and SqWires Restaurant.
