Holiday House Tour

Find inspiration for your holiday celebrations while experiencing the rich architectural heritage of Chestnut Hill

Holiday House Tour

Philadelphia’s longest running holiday tour! The Holiday season is a time to relive cherished traditions, and for Chestnut Hill, there is no better tradition than spending a day enjoying the Holiday House Tour. Our annual tour features the area’s loveliest historic homes decorated inside and out for the holidays. In recent years the tour included a charming cottage, a stately stone colonial, a three story Italianate Victorian, a second empire twin, and a Norman country house. Attendees have the option of riding our event trolley from stop to stop or visiting at their own pace in this self-guided tour. The tour is popular with both visitors and residents of Chestnut Hill, who come every year to discover a variety of dramatic homes while experiencing our neighborhood’s rich architectural heritage. This event is a major fundraiser for the Chestnut Hill Community Association and helps us provide services to our community throughout the year. 


There is no better tradition than spending a day in Chestnut Hill at the Holiday House Tour. Visit six unique, beautifully decorated homes. Expect some surprises along the way–live musical performances, and holiday treats.



All proceeds from this event benefit the Chestnut Hill Community Association, a non-profit serving our residents and community.

How do I volunteer?
Volunteering is a Chestnut Hill tradition. The CHCA has many committees comprised of volunteers planning for our events and addressing a variety of community issues. We always welcome new volunteers! Another way to get involved is to run for a seat on the Board of Directors. Board members serve for 3-year terms and meet on the fourth Thursday of every month except December. You don’t need to be a member to join most of our committees.

The CHCA holds many events throughout the year, including the Pastorius Park Summer Concert SeriesMovies Under the Stars, the Fall Frolic, the Chestnut Hill Holiday House Tour, the Chestnut Hill Holiday Parade, and the Hoops Madness Basketball Tournament.
