About this Event

The Glebe House Tour, 20 years running, is made possible by the generous homeowners who welcome ticket holders to tour their private homes and by volunteers who run this annual event for the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG).

On Sunday, September 15, from 1 to 4 p.m., you can stroll one of Ottawa’s oldest neighbourhoods, explore five private homes and help support GNAG’s subsidy program that helps children with special needs participate in programs and activities.

Come and see up close what homeowners have done to breathe life into older properties and how they decorate and live in their spaces.

Highlights of this year’s tour include a two-storey addition added in seven hours, a home with a palette of soothing tones and elegant black accents, a dining room with ingenious built-in seating and storage, examples of how to repurpose original doors, millwork and stained-glass windows, and a heritage home boasting many original features.

Volunteers are stationed throughout each home to direct you and answer questions. All homes will be custom adorned with floral arrangements by Bloomfields.The tour is well navigated by foot, bike or car. Or take advantage of the complimentary shuttle bus service provided. At the end of the tour, enjoy tea and superbly baked goods at the Glebe Community Centre from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m.Tickets are $35 the day of the event for those ages 11 and up. They’re available online at GNAG.ca under Events, at the Glebe Community Centre (175 Third Ave.), or by phone at 613-564-1058 or 613-233-8713.Tickets are limited. The tour runs rain or shine.
