Local restaurants, such as DBA Barbecue, Taco Cowboy, Highland Tap, Atkins Park, Marlow’s Tavern, Tapa Tap, Fontaine’s, Apres Diem, Pea Ridge, Highland Bakery, Press & Grind, The Cook’s Warehouse, and San Francisco Coffee Roasting Co. will provide tastings at each of the Tour homes.

The Tour of Homes is one of VaHi’s largest annual fundraisers. Event proceeds benefit VHCA and support community initiatives such as school grants and neighborhood park improvements, as well as safety, planning and preservation efforts.

The Tour of Homes experience is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season. Bring your family and friends out to hear the Grady High School Chorus and the SPARK choir perform, and enjoy hot mulled cider provided by Savory Spice shop. 

See you this weekend at the 2016 VaHi Tour of Homes!
