A self-guided tour of private homes decorated for the holidays. Includes artists, tastings, demos and what’s hot in holiday decor.

Funds raised support the Central Okanagan Hospice Association providing compassionate care, comfort, support and learning to those dying or grieving alone in our community.

Homes for the Holidays Tree Auction

Our beautiful trees can be yours! These designer decorated trees are perfect for home, office or your holiday party. Each of these trees has been generously sponsored by a local community-minded business and we thank them for their support.



Thank you to our home owners, sponsors, designers, decorators, generous local businesses and volunteers who made this event a sell-out success!
