The Cabbagetown Tour of Homes is Back!

Contributed by Gilles Huot, Cabbagetown Preservation Association. After a hiatus in 2016, the Cabbagetown Tour of Homes is back. The now biennial event will take place on Sunday September 17, 2017, from 12:00-noon till 4:00 pm.

 
Ticketholders will once again have the chance to see the interiors of some of the most amazing homes in Toronto. They all have a strong personality and the styles vary from quirky to classic and in some cases a mix of both. Here’s a taste of what you’ll see:

  • two Workers’ Cottages renovated very differently but with incredible results,
  • a beautiful modern home in a Victorian setting,
  • a large loft in a Victorian home offering a new housing concept,
  • large classy homes that show that you can live in style even if you have several kids,

… and much more!

 
The Tour is self-guided and participants can visit the homes in no preferred order. A map provided in the ticket will help visitors find their way while walking around our beautiful neighbourhood. Ticketholders can also benefit from special offers from selected local businesses.

 
The Cabbagetown Tour of Homes is a fundraiser for the Cabbagetown Preservation Association (CPA), a volunteer-based and not-for-profit organization. The proceeds are reinvested in the CPA and its programs: the Cabbagetown People program (blue plaques, the www.cabbagetownpeople.ca website, brochures, free tours for schools, social history research projects, etc.), the Peggy Kurtin Awards (excellence in restoration, improved facades, etc.), the CPA newsletters, the www.cabbagetownpa.ca website and CPA Facebook page, free walking tours in partnership with Heritage Toronto and others, the Streetscapes in Bloom garden competition, the Hidden Gardens & Private Spaces garden tour, our Cabbagetown Talks series and other public meetings, our information package for new Cabbagetown residents, and other important contributions to the city.  The CPA has also been supporting various local community organizations like the Cabbagetown Heritage Conservation District Committee.

 
The Cabbagetown Tour of Homes would not be possible without the hard work of its organizing committee, homeowners who allow hundreds of people to walk through their home, dozens of volunteers, and businesses who either sold Tour tickets and/or provided special offers to ticketholders.
