This event runs for the whole month of December!   This event is free to attend and is free to participate in!  

We reimagined our annual Holiday Stroll and are presenting a city-wide, self-guided tour of doors decorated for the holidays. Door to Door celebrates our neighborhoods, architecture, history, culture, and all that makes our city beautiful, interesting, and unique. It is designed to evoke a citywide holiday spirit in a way that is safe, fun, and educational. During the month of December, we invite you to view properties across the city that are decorated for the holidays. We welcomed all Worcester residents and businesses to participate by decorating their doors in their chosen fashion, faith or custom. Our digital guide will help you plan your route, provide you with information on neighborhoods, and sometimes provide the inspiration of people’s decorating themes. We are heartened by the outstanding support of sponsors and the willingness of our community to participate by decorating and/or purchasing yard signs. Their support not only brought needed revenue to our organization, more importantly it provides a wonderful activity during our challenging times. We hope that our tour uplifts your spirits, and wish your and yours a joy-filled holiday season.

Our city-wide self-guided tour will take place from December 5th through December 31st and and will include nearly twenty Worcester neighborhoods. Celebrating architecture, history, culture, and all that makes our city beautiful, interesting, and unique, the tour will evoke a holiday spirit in a way that is safe, fun, and educational.beautiful, interesting, and unique, the tour will evoke a holiday spirit in a way that is safe, fun, and educational.   

All city residents and businesses were encouraged to join with us by decorating their front doors in any fashion, faith, or custom. There is no cost to take part; simply register with Preservation Worcester.  Tour properties are listed in our digital booklet and each tour participant had the option to share a 2-3 sentence statement describing the inspiration behind their decorations. Tourgoers will view the varieties of decorations at their leisure; the digital booklet will contain the tour route in addition to historical and architectural information on each featured neighborhood.  

 

Whether you participate in decorating or not, please consider showing your support by purchasing our artist-designed yard sign - pictured here. Signs will be available throughout the month as supplies last.  We hope that our lively signs will be distributed across the entire city and will spotlight a communal holiday spirit.  Advertising and sponsorship opportunities are also available please email info@preservationworcester.org.
