Tour of Homes - 3pm to 8pm
Holiday Market & Cafe - 12pm to 6pm


Christmas is an amazing time here in Avondale Estates and the Tour of Homes and Holiday Market add to the wonderful feeling of the holiday.  This year trolleys will be back in town to take visitors from house to house. Pick up the trolley at the Avondale First Baptist Church at the corner of Covington and Stratford Roads. (Reserve a seat by contacting This email address is being protected from spambots.

Before touring, visit the Avondale Community Club where you can purchase or pick up tickets. Take time to visit our fabulous Holiday Market & Café featuring great foods, unique gifts, and fun finds.

Our 27th annual tour features homes that have been sensitively restored or renovated to preserve the character of our historic city. This year’s tour spans over 90 years beginning with an “Avondale Original” English cottage built in 1926, a 1947 ranch that was recently renovated, two 50s bungalows that have been bumped out and up, a 1963 Mid-century ranch and a two-story Craftsman Bungalow built in 2014. An additional point of interest on the tour is the Avondale First Baptist Church where you can pick up a trolley/bus for the tour or enjoy their beautiful Christmas “Lessons and Carols” at 7:00. Be sure to visit the Holiday Market at the Avondale Community Club for great food and fun finds!  (Holiday Market – Noon-6:00 Tour of Homes 3:00-8:00)

Nearly everyone in town participates in the tour and market either by opening their homes, decorating the city, volunteering as hosts and hostesses, playing music, entertaining visitors on the trolleys, creating something for the market, sponsoring the tour as corporate sponsors or as Christmas “angels,” or just enjoying touring the homes.

Tickets may be purchased for $15 in advance at Avondale City Hall, Finders Keepers Furniture, and Garage Door Studio or for $20 on the day of the tour at the Avondale Community Club.

We hope to see you in town on December 15th!
