2022 Christmas Tour of Homes
Saturday, December 3, 2022
Save the date! Saturday December 3, 2022 from 10-5 is the day selected for “The Christmas Tour of Homes.” The tour is sponsored by St. Agatha’s Episcopal Church in DeFuniak Springs to benefit their Preservation Fund which is dedicated to the upkeep of the Church’s three historic buildings on Circle Drive. Following a 2-year hiatus because of COVID concerns, plans are underway for a stellar event to benefit! You will definitely need a car to get to all the homes and other attractions.
Try to come for the weekend. Some hotels offer weekend packages. You may want to experience a movie at the Chautauqua Theatre on Friday evening. In addition to an all-day tour of about 10 homes on Saturday, extra things may be included such as Breakfast at St. Agatha’s. Also, the Mistle Toe Market, the Historic Library, the Church, the Parish House, and Murray House will be open. Finally, the renowned “Christmas Reflections” with 9 million lights and displays around Lake DeFuniak begins at 5 pm.
On Sunday the only remaining church from the Chautauqua era (St. Agatha’s circa 1896 at 144 Circle Drive) will welcome you at 10:15 am. After lunch, an exploration of the history of this “Chautauqua Town” via a walking tour might be nice. Before you depart, stop by the Chautauqua Winery for wine tasting and a visit to their fantastic gift shop. Make this a weekend to remember and thank our business sponsors, such as Visit South Walton, who help to make the event possible.
Reserved tickets for the tour can be purchased by sending $25 per person to “Christmas Tour” 504 Circle Drive, DeFuniak Springs, Florida 32435. Your tickets and your tour guide will be waiting for you at 9:45 am on December 3, 2022 at the Visitor’s Center, next to the depot, on Circle Drive. Call 850-830-7663 for additional information.
