From vintage mid-century to modern style, the tour homes showcase the best of Wheat Ridge. The tour is an event highly anticipated by design experts around the state!

The tour format is a self-guided with an open house format.  You will drive to the five homes on the tour and meet with the homeowner upon arrival.

Not in the mood to drive around?
You can purchase a digital ticket which will provide you with a visual exploration of all five homes that are being presented on in-person tour plus bonus homes!  The digital ticket will be good from August 28 through September 4.  You can view the homes as many times as you want during this timeframe.
