Come Out, have fun & support New Canaan CARES!

Join more than 700 tour-goers visiting stunning, distinct, and exclusive New Canaan homes showcasing the latest in kitchen and home design trends by nationally published designers. The Tour will include seven homes that vary greatly in style, size, and setting, but all share an uncompromising commitment to quality and innovative kitchen design.

From cottages to grand estates, people find their happy place at the exquisite homes on our Tour. Tour-goers are warmly greeted and invited to experience the amazing amenities that each of the homes has to offer; including beautiful landscaping and flawless home design. 2019 Tour Tickets will go on sale early spring 2019.
