About

Homes for the Holidays is brought to you by Junior League of Edmonton. Each year the Homes for the Holidays Tour brings together local designers and decorators, community volunteers, and retailers to decorate five beautiful homes graciously loaned to us by local homeowners for this annual fundraiser. The decorated homes are opened to the public with the purchase of a ticket, giving tour participants a dose of holiday inspiration, and the opportunity to bring décor ideas to life in their own homes.

Not only does the event spark the magic of the holiday spirit for our more than 1500 attendees, it carries that spirit on throughout the year as all proceeds from the event  support the Junior League of Edmonton as we direct our focus on girls’ self-esteem and mental health and services support in Edmonton.

Why do we host Homes for the Holidays?

As Edmonton’s leading women’s organization, the Junior League of Edmonton develops and delivers projects in direct response to recognized needs in our community relating to our mandate of girls’ self-esteem and mental health.Funds raised through Homes for the Holidays will ensure that valuable services to Edmonton and area will continue to be supported, and that new programs will be identified by our Community Impact Committees.

We are one of three Canadian Junior Leagues to host Homes for the Holidays. Tours are also held in Halifax and Hamilton-Burlington.
