The annual Bexley House & Garden Tour is not just to show some of the amazing history and homes in Bexley, but it is also our main fundraising event for the Bexley Women's Club Scholarships.
Bexley Women's Club has awarded over 900 Scholarships totaling over $550,000 to students in the Bexley area. The House & Garden Tour is a large part of what makes this possible.
Over 200 volunteers are required to staff the tour. Volunteer opportunities exist almost all year round. Whether you are a member of the Bexley Women's Club, just want to volunteer, or want to become a sponsor, your help is welcome and needed!
You are essential to the success of the House & Garden Tour!
We have many beautiful stops on the tour that need home volunteers so sign up below to get involved.
The members of Bexley Women’s Club thank our non-member volunteers for your time and support of this year’s tour by offering you free admission to the tour when you volunteer. You will receive a wristband at your volunteer location that will allow you entry at each tour site.

Bexley Women’s Club is proud to host an outdoor tour this year! Considering the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are working to follow CDC, Ohio Department of Health, and City of Bexley guidelines to ensure as fun and safe an event as possible.
Per Governor DeWine: All state Covid-19 Safety orders will end on June 2, 2021 (with a few exceptions like nursing homes).
From the Ohio Department of Health: Except in certain limited circumstances, fully vaccinated persons may safely do most activities without a facial covering and without socially distancing. Unvaccinated individuals are at a significantly higher risk of getting COVID-19 and suffering its devastating toll. As such, unvaccinated individuals should continue to protect themselves using mitigation measures, such as masking and social distancing.
Bexley Women’s Club 2021 Garden Tour Safety Agreement (Your participation/admission to the Bexley Garden Tour is contingent upon agreement to follow our safety protocols)
1. WEAR A MASK according to your vaccination status: Persons who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask, socially distance, avoid large gatherings, and whenever possible, be outside for activities and gatherings.
2. MAINTAIN A SAFE DISTANCE
In an effort to maintain everyone’s safety you will find signs and barriers throughout the tour to remind you to keep a 6-foot perimeter from those not in your party, especially important for folks who are not vaccinated against Covid-19.
3. STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE FEELING ILL
or have recently been exposed to someone with Covid-19. As much as we would love to have you participate, please plan to attend next year’s tour instead if you are feeling ill.
