House & Garden Tour

Bexley Women's Club

Annual House & Garden Tour

The 2021 House & Garden Tour Committee wants to thank all of you who made the event successful.  Whether you were an attendee enjoying the gardens, a homeowner sharing your outdoor space, a volunteer making the day flow smoothly or a sponsor providing financial or in-kind support, you helped make our annual fundraiser a success!

Hope you enjoyed this year's outdoor Tour and we look forward to your participation in next year's Tour on June 5, 2022.

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!
