Midtown Holiday Home Tour Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary

October 2019

The Midtown Holiday Home Tour is celebrating its 10th year by expanding its offerings to appeal to a broader group of patrons. This year, the tour has added a display of beautiful classic cars, a raffle for fine bourbons, cigars and a Big Green Egg. However, it’s still about having a chance to look inside historic homes you have always wanted to see that are beautifully decorated for the holidays.

The tour runs Nov. 16 and 17 and, as always, is a fundraiser benefiting restorative and revitalization efforts by Midtown Indy. (The area known as Midtown Indianapolis is comprised of 17 neighborhoods located between the waterways White River and Fall Creek. This 12-mile-square area serves as a gateway to the north side and to downtown Indianapolis.)

Midtown Holiday Home Tour

Midtown Indy is a community services organization committed to positively impacting the quality of life and economic vitality of the collective neighborhoods of Midtown Indianapolis. They bring people, neighborhood associations, businesses and cultural organizations together to encourage collaborative initiatives that result in a more economically attractive, healthy and sustainable Midtown region.

The tour features five private homes in four different neighborhoods that are a mix of traditional Meridian-Kessler style homes. Touring these historic and magnificent homes in all their holiday finery is a great way to kick off your holiday season. Each of the homes will feature magnificent floral displays, and a local restaurant will be on-site to offer a variety of food and drinks.

Midtown Holiday Home Tour

New this year will be a vintage classic automobile on display at each of the homes. The cars range from a 1941 Chevy to a very special 1931 Duesenberg Rollston convertible Victoria J472.

Midtown Holiday Home Tour

Unlike years past, this year’s tour will begin at the National Bank of Indianapolis building at 38th and Washington Street. There you can buy tickets (if you haven’t already purchased online), register for a drawing to win some unbelievable prizes and begin the tour! Among the prizes to be given away are cigars, bottles of bourbon, a Big Green Egg and a $500 spree at Petite G Jewelers!

If you are noticing a pattern here of offering something for everyone, you would be correct.

We would encourage you to start your holiday celebration by having a great time attending the Midtown Holiday Home Tour and supporting the great work of Midtown Indy.
