Christmas greetings! Welcome to the 68th Annual Holiday House tour. Please join us as we celebrate the season and its message of hope. This year's tour will feature two condominiums in Birmingham's oldest condominium building, as well as three gorgeous homes and Independent Presbyterian Church decorated for Christmas. We invite you inside each of these homes and to stop by the church for tea and cookies as you help us raise money for three ministries providing educational opportunities for women and children in the Birmingham area.

Please check back soon for more pictures and information about the homes on this year's tour!

This year's tour will feature:

Purchasing Tickets

Tickets are $30 each and can be purchased online, at each house or at Independent Presbyterian Church during tour hours. 100% of ticket sales go to the following IPC ministries:

 

  • One of IPC's first and oldest missions, the Children's Fresh Air Farm has evolved into a six-week summer learning program for under-served children in the greater Birmingham area. Students begin this program after completing a year in the STAIR program (Start The Adventure In Reading)

  • This IPC ministry opened its doors in 2016 to provide free basic literacy, GED and English as a Second Language classes to people in the North Avondale and Kingston Communities. Free childcare is also provided to the participants. This is a partnership with the Literacy Council of Central Alabama and Jeffersonson State Community College.

  • STAIR (Start the Adventure in Reading) works with Birmingham City Schools to identify second graders who are reading below grade level. Volunteer tutors work with these students one-on-one to improve reading skills and self esteem.

Please Note: We regret there is limited disabled access at the private homes. Downloadable directions coming soon!
