2018 House and Garden Tour

The 2018 House and Garden Tour is planned for Saturday, May 12, 2018 11:00am- 5:00pm rain or shine.


 A biennial project of the Del Ray Citizens Association, the tour serves as a fundraiser for neighborhood projects.  This year the proceeds will be donated to Nancy Dunning Memorial Garden and the Del Ray Gateway Project.


The 12 homes on this year’s tour range from rowhouse renovations to single family new construction and everything in between.  This walkable tour offers participants the chance to see the wide variety of homes in the neighborhood: an old farmhouse renovated for a young family, an open concept home with a carefully cultivated and stunning art collection, and a 1917 catalog home with an original purchase price of $1,396.50.


The tour is a wonderful reflection of Del Ray’s diversity as well as an opportunity to see the work of local architects and builders.  Join us to get great ideas on paint colors, tiles, decorative hardware, bath and kitchen fixtures, and much, much more. 

Tickets are $25 until May 1, when they will increase to $30.  Tickets can be purchased at a reduced price by DRCA members at the April and May membership meetings. Volunteer for a shift as a docent at one of the homes and receive a free ticket.
