The Christmas trees are ordered and the spirit of Christmas will be present in Vankleek Hill during the annual Christmas Home Tour, which takes place on Saturday, November 3, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This year’s event features six heritage homes decorated for the holidays, each in a different style!

This year’s decorators are Cottage Blue Home, Flourish & Knot, Carole Robert, Donna Doucette, Valerie Carkner and Belle Design.

An additional hour has been added to this year’s tour, following last year’s sold-out event.

The Food: Enjoy church luncheons, high tea or discover the many places to eat right in town — delicious things are on the menu for this year’s event!

Attractions: Nativity Scenes, St. Nicholas figures and angels on display at Église St-Grégoire, a quilt show at Knox Church, specialty vendors, The Houses of Vankleek Hill art show at Arbor Gallery, artisans, music and snacks at the Creating Centre (corner of the main intersection), vintage sleigh photos and Christmas carollers — taste-tours at Beau’s All-Natural Brewing Company AND at Vankleek Hill’s newest business — Sarah Cole Cider! Plus: Apex Escape Rooms has a special 15-minute escape for those of you who want to put your skills to the test in their mobile escape room! All the village shops will be ready to welcome visitors on tour day!

Shuttle buses will take visitors from house to house in town and to other locations where special events are happening.

You can also take home a unique Vankleek Hill souvenir on tour day. Be sure to pick up one of our four collector edition Christmas ornaments, each featuring one of Vankleek Hill’s beautiful brick homes. Our 2018 ornament is The Review’s own heritage building, in celebration of our 125th anniversary!

This event is organized by The Review, sharing proceeds with six community organizations, which provide some of the 100 volunteers needed for this event.
