Holiday Home Tour - Ticket Purchase

Tickets purchased online will be mailed to your home.

Holiday season revelers! Take note of a few big changes to one of the area’s most popular events — the Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library 2018 Holiday Home Tour.

This year, the showcase of five area homes done up in high style for the holidays for all to see will be Sunday, Dec. 9 from noon - 5 p.m. This marks a return to a Sunday - in - December date after several show days in November in previous years.

Another big change: Taking part in this year’s event will be loc al home builder Moceri Builders. The Moceri home will be in their burgeoning Oakland Twp. Greystone Manor project; local decorators will bring holiday glitz and glamor to the unit.

One more thing to take special note of: The tour’s popular Gift Boutiq ue will be hosted at a very familiar sixth stop, Rochester Hills’ Van Hoosen Museum Dairy Barn. Items for sale include toffee, festive socks, warm scarves, plenty of holiday decorations and many more unique items for filling out holiday gift lists.

But there’s more! Cider and donut refreshments will be available at the barn for each person with a HHT ticket. And as one more perk, Holiday Home Tour - goers will also get free admission to the annual model train display in the Van Hoosen Museum Calf Barn!

On the tour, people will see a wide - array of décor styles and several one - of - a - kind displays put together by the five site hosts. Four of them have volunteered to open their homes to let others peek at what usually only close friends and family see. And the Greystone Manor home will give visitors a glimpse of what Christmas in that community might be like. It’s all to help raise funds for the Friends, the Rochester Hills Public Library’s volunteer arm.

Friends President Ron Meegan said “We are very grateful to the homeowners and Moceri Builders who offered to keep this wonderful event alive for another year. Many local businesses and individuals have donated money to the Holiday Home Tour to help underwrite the cost of the event. The tour presents some truly singular design options and ideas and shouldn’t be missed by anyone who enjoys this time of the year. This has become a signature annual event for the area and we hope everyone will make room on their schedule this year to tak e in these seasonally decorated residences.”
