Guests will be welcomed with the theme of “Plaid Tidings” and are encouraged to wear their own plaid to be part of the festivities.
Musicians and entertainers will be found entertaining guests in unexpected spaces along the tour, but the centerpiece of the day will be the historic homes and their unique seasonal decorations. The focal event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 5. This self-guided tour features expanded hours (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Tickets are $16 in advance, $20 the day of the tour.
Day-trippers will discover a why Tipp City has been named the Best Hometown by Ohio Magazine for 2015-2016. It is located in the southwest corridor of Ohio about 15 miles north of downtown Dayton in Miami County. Situated just north of the I-70/I-75 intersection, Tipp City is nestled in a charming community of unique shopping, dining and recreational activities.
Following the success of last year’s Preview Night tour and party, this candlelight event will be repeated on Friday evening, Dec. 4. This event affords the ticketholder an opportunity to tour homes with a smaller number of guests and under the cover of nightfall, giving the holiday lights time to shine.
Following the touring (6:30-8:30 p.m.), guests are invited to the Plaid Lounge for an after-party, which will be held in a surprise location. This secret venue is in a large downtown space that has been imaginatively redesigned for the evening by professional designers who are known regionally for their talent. Tickets are $50 each and are available only through midnight Monday, Nov. 30 or while supplies last. The Preview Night headcount is limited to 250 guests.
Proceeds from the Tippecanoe Christmas in the Village Home Tour are donated back to the community through its many non-profits who assist in making the weekend possible.
Tickets will go on sale Nov. 1, at the following locations in Tipp City: Coldwater Café, Greenfire Bistro, Harrison’s Restaurant, Hock’s Pharmacy, Hotel Gallery, Sugden Furniture and Tipp Monroe Community Services; as well as at Home Comfort Gallery in nearby Troy, Ohio.
