The Yeiser Art Center (YAC) is proud to announce its second annual Holiday Tour of Homes! Please plan to join us between noon to 4 pm on Saturday, November 29, 2014, to see the finest examples of downtown living in Paducah, Kentucky! All homes will be decorated with their most festive Christmas decor! A team of dedicated volunteers will briefly inform you about the history of these amazing spaces as well as elaborate about the homes' art collections.
This year, we also are adding guided walking tours. For $5 more, each trained tour guide will give a thorough history of the buildings and their tenants. Guided tours will embark every 30 minutes in groups of 10.
In addition to the Holiday Tour of Homes, "A Dickens of a Christmas" Downtown Small Business Saturday will take place the same day from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
You will not believe the lineup of street-side entertainment we have planned for downtown that day! Pictures with Santa, youth and adult carolers, brass band ensembles, artisans showing their crafts, costumed actors milling around downtown, roasted chestnut and wassail sales, carriage rides, etc. You need to mark this event on your calendar, since you'll want to bring out-of-town guests and family to it! The Holiday Tour of Homes will put you and your loved ones in a gleeful mood and will entertain you while you burn off some of those Thanksgiving calories!
When you finish touring the homes, be sure to stop back at the YAC and catch a glimpse of the 2014 Annual Member's Show and the amazing offerings and gift items found in our Gallery Store. Come and see these amazing homes and learn what makes downtown Paducah such a special place!
When you check-in at the Yeiser Art Center for the tour, you will receive a detailed map and bio of each home.
Tickets are $18 Pre-Sale; $20 Self-Guided Walking Tour (with tour map); and $25 Guided Walking Tour. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Yeiser Art Center.
