Holiday House Tour

The New Canaan Holiday House Tour is a biennial charity event organized by the New Canaan Newcomers Club. Held in December, the event showcases New Canaan homes in varied architectural styles decorated for the holidays. Each home is paired with a professional designer who works with a team of Newcomer Volunteers to bring the vision to life. While the Tour is a fun, festive way to kick off the holiday season, it is also an important fundraising event that highlights the true spirit of the season. All proceeds raised by the event benefit local charities and organizations that are the essence of the New Canaan community.
