Christmas Home Tour Benefitting Child Advocates of Fort Bend Starts Friday

December 05 2023

Homeowners and the 2023 Christmas Home Tour Committee are busy with final preparations for the 32nd annual Christmas Home Tour. Set for Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9, the tour will feature homes in Imperial, Sugar Creek, Sweetwater, Riverstone and Sienna.

Tickets are available online at and at several Fort Bend locations including the Randalls in Pecan Gove, Briarwood gifts & Décor, Cru Design, Fabulous You, Magpies Sugar Land and 2250 Interiors. One $35 ticket allows entry to all homes during tour hours, allowing busy guests to see the Tour all at once or visit a few homes each day, depending on their schedule. The presenting Sponsor for the event is Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation. Tour hours are Friday and Saturday from 10am until 4pm and Friday evening from 6pm until 9pm. Friday evening guests will receive a special lighted necklace, while supplies last.

“You definitely won’t want to miss this fun and festive event which has become a crown jewel of the holiday season,” stated Ruthanne Mefford, Child Advocates of Fort Bend CEO.

In addition to seeing beautiful homes all decked out for the holidays, there will be performances by talented local performers, home baked cookies, hot cider and an ice cream cart, preciously provided by Southern Ice Cream. Santa will be at one of the homes for photos and there will be designated selfie photo spots at three of the other homes for guests to take their own event photos to share on their personal social media accounts. Adorable holiday tees and vibrant colored butterfly ornaments will also be available for sale at two of the homes.

"Whatever your décor style or your holiday mood from Grinch to Santa Claus, you are sure to enjoy yourself. If you follow us on social - you can get a sneak peek but you will definitely want to come and see them for yourself," said Mefford.

Beginning as a fundraiser 32 years ago to help keep the agency’s doors open, a group of passionate volunteers opened their homes, decorated for Christmas, baked cookies and charged admission. The tour was a raging success and has since become a Fort Bend County holiday tradition. 

The Christmas Home Tour welcomes more than 1,800 guests over the two days. More than 700 volunteers will help as hosts in the homes, serve as entertainers or by baking delicious cookies. This is a spirited community event, but most importantly it is a fundraiser which supports programs and 18+ services that benefit the children served by Child Advocates of Fort Bend. In 2022, the agency served 3,833 children and families. Your support of this event is essential to helping abused and neglected children in our community.

Tickets, ornaments and t-shirts can be purchased on our website at Sponsorships of $425 - $10,000 are still available. To become a sponsor or for ticket or more information, please contact Tarina at
