15th Holiday Tour of Homes
Join Manteo Preservation Trust (MPT) for the 15th Holiday Tour of Homes. MPT sponsors the tour to encourage the public’s understanding and appreciation of the historic heritage of Manteo and Roanoke Island, both architecturally and culturally. The Holiday Tour of Homes is one of the highlights of a festive weekend of events in Manteo including the town’s holiday pageant and tree lighting on Friday evening, the 50th Christmas parade on Saturday morning and Winter Lights at the Elizabethan Gardens on the north end of the island. Come early, shop, dine and bring in your holiday season Roanoke Island style.
Included on the Holiday Tour of Homes this year are not only several historic island homes, but also some new construction featuring "The Manteo Way of Building."
Outer Banks Distilling on Budleigh Street serves as the check-in for the tour. You may buy tickets and pick up a map the day of the event. Ticket sales start at noon! The tour starts at 1 p.m.
Manteo Cyclery will be supplying bikes for anyone who wants to tour by bike. The bikes are free to use, but they'll be given out on a first come, first served basis.
We will be holding a raffle for a basket full of awesome local items and gift certificates on the day of the tour. Tickets are $10 each or six for $50. Don't miss out!
Also, please note that if you donate at the MPT Patron level you will get two free tickets to the tour and will automatically be placed on the will call list.
