Bedford Council of Garden Clubs is proud to present the 2017 Bedford Christmas Home Tour on December 3, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The theme of this year’s home tour is Christmas in the World’s Best Little Town. WBLT were the call letters of the local radio station founded by Jim Synan in the early 1950’s. This became the unofficial trademark of the town of Bedford.
Since 1973 the Bedford Council of Garden Clubs has sponsored a biennial Christmas Home Tour the first of December. The homes this year are ones in Bedford that the owners so graciously have agreed to open for this liesurely Sunday afternoon tour. The five unique homes selected for 2017 range from an 1800’s Vernacular to a 1946 Colonial style cottage. Many points of interest in these homes allow opportunities for the garden club members to showcase their many talents and creativity. The Bower Center for the Arts will be open to the public as a tour stop where refreshments will be served. The recent renovation of the Bower Center and the art exhibits showcased will add appeal for those who visit.
Tickets for the 2017 Christmas Home Tour are $15.00 in advance and $20.00 the day of the tour. The program containing information on the homes and the advertisements are the ticket for the tour and must be presented at the door to visit the home. The funds raised from this event are for the many projects of the clubs belonging to the Bedford Council, the Council itself, the Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs, and National Garden Clubs, Inc. Therefore the tickets are non-refundable. Your program/ticket provides access to these properties at the time of the tour.
The Bedford Council of Garden Clubs welcomes you to Christmas in the World’s Best Little Town.
