The Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary Holiday House Tour has been a beloved tradition for 24 years and and has raised more than $1,000,000 for local and international charitable projects. Each year, our hard working volunteers and our community partners come together to showcase beautiful historic and contemporary homes decorated for the holidays.

 

Our Holiday House Tour is a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit. Join us this year for a weekend of joy and merriment and be a part of our tradition of giving back.

President's Message

President’s Message

Once again, we welcome and thank everyone who comes to Rotary’s Annual Holiday House Tour. I am constantly amazed at how many people tell me that they have come every year with their family and friends to tour the beautiful homes decorated for the holiday season.

 

We all have a critical role to play in the success of this year’s Holiday House Tour. 
Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of you. 

  • To our very generous homeowners who welcome us into their residences and the talented decorators who make those homes so beautifully festive. 

  • To our generous sponsors and supporters who provide complimentary goods and services as well as significant donations to our funds. 

  • To our Holiday House Tour Committee who work diligently year-round to ensure the success of this project. 

  • To our hundreds of volunteers who work tirelessly to make sure that the Holiday House Tour operates efficiently and safely, come what may.  

  • And finally, to you, our outstanding patrons, who travel from a great distance in any weather, to join our Holiday House Tour event.  

 

Over the years of the Tour, the Rotary Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake has raised a significant amount of money which each year is allocated 50% to Local Community Projects and 50% to International Projects. We help people near and far.  

Thanks to all of you for your ongoing support of the NOTL Rotary Holiday House Tour.  Enjoy The Tour and our delightful Town. We wish you all the best of the holiday season. 

Carol Lipsett, President 2023-2024

Q&A

There will be a volunteer available to answer questions from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm on Friday & Saturday of the tour at Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre at 
247 Ricardo Street, NOTL (map site 9)

 

How does the day tour work?

 

This is a self-guided tour. You can start at any of the 6 main houses to get your stamp and view the sites in any order you wish. Many of the properties are close together and easily walkable if you are fully mobile, however, some distances will require a vehicle. For those with limited mobility, cars will be able to drop off and pick up at the front of the house. Please email us at notlhht@gmail.com.

 

Please bring a shoe bag.

 

In an effort to reduce single-use plastic, we ask you to bring your own reusable water-resistant shoe bag. Please remove shoes while in homes and place them in the bag. Reusable souvenir Holiday House Tour totes will be available for a small donation.

 

Is your Day Tour ticket valid for both days?

 

YES, you can use your Day Tour ticket for both days from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm. Evening Tour tickets are only for the specific day and time stated on your ticket. 

Interior photographs are only allowed through pre-approval.

Rotary Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake

Rotary is where neighbours, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change. Through Rotary clubs, people from all continents and cultures form friendships and professional connections while making a difference in their backyards and around the world. 

 

Club activities, social events, and volunteer projects in picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake offer networking opportunities that build personal and professional connections – and Rotarians can extend those networks by visiting other clubs around the globe.

The mandate of the Local Service Committee for 2023 is to use our members’ talents and skills to identify, plan, and carry out projects within our community. Our focus this year is feeding the hungry, mental health, youth at risk, and violence against women and children.

Our club has been involved in numerous international projects from eradicating polio, providing shelter, clean water and food, to improving medical facilities, and many more projects around the world. We have made a positive impact on thousands of lives. 

Rotary International encourages us to develop projects that address priority needs identified by the communities they serve, to help people to help themselves, and to ensure projects are environmentally sustainable. 

To learn more about our Club and view the projects we support, visit niagaraonthelakerotary.ca. If you are interested in service to others and would like more information, please email info@niagaraonthelakerotary.ca.

We hold noon and evening meetings with presentations and social events, open to friends and family to participate.

The Holiday House Tour attracts people from all over the world. While we love that the tour has such a wonderful reputation, we are also aware of the carbon footprint that creates. In an effort to offset that footprint, we are donating $1 per ticket to Landcare Niagara to plant trees in the Region.

Our beautiful, seasonally decorated town has many special events: the annual Candlelight Stroll sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, a Shaw Festival performance of  ‘A Christmas Carol’ or ‘Brigadoon’, winery tours, local shopping, fabulous dining, our annual sites, and plenty of other activities.
