The Duniway Holiday Home Tour and Artisan Boutique is back for the 41st year as Portland’s longest-running house-hopping extravaganza.
The one-day event is Friday, December 6, starting at Duniway Elementary school, 7700 SE Reed College Place, Portland.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the students of Duniway Elementary by providing an arts program, cultural development and other academic enrichments.
The Duniway PTA and gracious members of the community offer 6 outstanding homes to explore. All homes are special and certain to spark nostalgia, inspiration and warm holiday spirit.
This year’s tour features a Mediterranean-style home brimming with an astounding collection of Pop Art and expertly curated Native American art. Other homes include an eclectic vintage-inspired Colonial, and a newly remodeled estate. The six homes offer a diverse array of architecture, landscaping and design: from classic to eclectic, and all the gorgeous styles between.
Nothing enhances a home tour like shopping! The Duniway Artisan Boutique is set to provide all your gift-giving needs. Browse dozens of local vendors in the Duniway Elementary gymnasium for locally made crafts, home goods and treats. Purchase a unique bag or tote made from repurposed material and fill it with handcrafted jewelry, Oregon honey, handmade pasta and soap. Other vendors offer home goods such as special holiday ornaments and eco-friendly laundry products.
From the school, participants can board the complimentary trolley to any of the gorgeous Eastmoreland homes whose residents have opened their doors to benefit Arts education. The trolley circulates on a loop for participants to house-hop at their leisure. A collectible brochure provides a brief description of homes on the tour, and homes can be explored in any chosen order.
The annual event offers two sessions throughout the day from 10am-3pm, and 5pm-9pm. Live music will fill the homes during the evening session.
Tickets are $35 at the door, or $30 in advance at www.duniwayhometour.org. Admission to the Artisan Boutique is free, and will be open 9am-7:30pm. Single ticket purchase provides access to the Tour, Trolley and Boutique.
