A really nice way to start your Holidays in Doylestown is the Annual Christmas in Doylestown House Tour and Boutique. This event is sponsored by Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church to raise funds for the local homeless shelter and other projects at Saint Paul’s. (Over the years Saint Paul’s has donated over $72,000 to the Bucks County Housing Group to benefit the Doylestown Homeless Shelter – major percentage of their non-government funding.)
This multi-level event will take place on the first weekend in December to coincide with Doylestown’s First Friday – The dates are December 4-5. This year, four borough homes, gorgeously decorated inside and out by Saint Paul’s parishioners, will be featured on the house tour. Paxson Hall, the Church Education Center, is transformed into a festive holiday boutique, featuring Tea for house tour ticket holders, and a full array of baked goods, our famous butter cookies, dolls and gifts for the holiday and attic treasures.
The House Tours run from 6 to 9PM on Friday, Dec. 4th, and from 11AM to 4PM on Saturday, Dec. 5th. The Boutique is free and opens one hour earlier. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased by mail by sending a check (made out to “Saint Paul’s House Tour Fund”) and a self-addressed envelope to the parish office. Orders received after November 25th will be held at the boutique for pick up on tour days. The address is:
