WCPL's 12th

The WCPL Holiday Home and Door Tours return on Saturday, December 2! 

Holiday Home Tickets go on sale October 15 online and in the library. 

Choose your holiday experience:

Home Tour


The perennially popular Holiday Home Tour will take place on Saturday, December 2, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and will showcase eight homes in the Northwest and Southwest quadrants of the Borough decked out for the holidays. Ranging from petite to grand, the homes blend original details with modern updates and display the homeowners’ art, collectibles, and antiques.



Door Tour


Created as a socially distanced replacement for the Holiday Home Tour during the pandemic shutdown of 2020, the family-friendly Holiday Door Tour was so popular the library now offers it in addition to the Home Tour! Running from Saturday, December 2 through Sunday, December 17, this self-guided tour will feature  West Chester doors and porches decorated by their owners in holiday finery. It can be enjoyed at any time of day and by a group of your choice.

NOTE: This tour does not include entry into homes and is entirely outdoors, self-guided, and at a time of your convenience. 

All proceeds from the Holiday Tours will benefit West Chester Public Library

and the community it serves.

HolidayHome Tour

Holiday Home Tour advance tickets are $40 per person and may be purchased in the library or online through December 1. Tickets may be purchased the day of the Tour, December 2, at the library for $50 each. No tickets (wristbands) or booklets will be mailed this year. When purchasing online you can choose to pick up your wristband and booklet at the library any time before or on the day of the Tour. If you choose to download the booklet, you will still need to pick up your wristband at the library before or on the day of the Tour.

Holiday Door Tour

To attend the Door Tour, make a donation of any size  to the Holiday Door Tour on our donation page. Donors will receive Door Tour maps via email, along with a list of scavenger hunt items to look for among the decorations. Tour-goers can go on any or all of several scavenger hunts for specific items among the decorations in different areas of the borough.
