The Christmas Homes Tour consists of private properties which are not accessible to those using wheelchairs or walkers. For your comfort and safety, please wear flat walking shoes, and watch for steps and uneven surfaces as you visit tour properties.

Tours are held rain or shine. Pets (except service animals) are not permitted. Children 17 years of age and under must always be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult. Except for babies in arms or body carriers, children require their own ticket for entrance.

Being featured on a tour is not an endorsement by the Green Spring Garden Club, Inc. of the homeowner’s political views, religious affiliations, or other opinions or practices. The Green Spring Garden club, Inc. and owners of Christmas Homes Tour properties, are not responsible for accidents occurring on tours.

Safety precautions will be respected and followed. Although preventive measures will be in place and adhered to, given the novel nature of COVID-19 and the rapid pace at which it spreads, the Green Spring Garden Club, Inc. cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to or become infected. By attending the Christmas Homes Tour, you may be putting yourself at increased risk for contracting COVID-19.

Convenience fees cover credit card processing costs and Eventbrite's services which allow us to offer online ticket sales. This ensures that 100% of proceeds benefit the philanthropy projects of Green Spring Garden Club, Inc.

Tour proceeds fund scholarships in biology and environmental policy at Christopher Newport University and the College of William and Mary, scholarships for late elementary and middle school children for Nature Camp, contribute to restoration and maintenance of Colonial Williamsburg gardens, and contribute to the maintenance of other public gardens in the Williamsburg area.
