House & Garden Tour

Bexley Women's Club

Annual House & Garden Tour

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!

The 2021 edition of the tour will focus on outdoor living. Bexley residents have risen to the COVID-19 challenge by finding creative ways to enjoy their outdoor spaces. This year, the Bexley Women's Club House & Garden Tour will feature some of the best outdoor living spaces in Bexley. We will also showcase one of our alleys, following May’s Love Your Alleys Month in Bexley. This is definitely the year to celebrate our gardens, yards, patios, and decks and all the different ways that outdoor spaces enhance our daily lives. We welcome you to join us on June 6, 2021!

Please note: Masking and distancing will be required at every tour location. In order to reduce our carbon footprint, we will not be providing bottled water this year. Guests are encouraged to carry their own water in reusable containers. Since the tour will be held rain or shine, please plan for an enjoyable outdoor event. That may include umbrellas and boots (but we’re hoping for a sunny day). We hope to provide free shuttle service to sites, but this will depend on the protocols in place in June.

Covid-19 Safety

Bexley Women’s Club is proud to host an outdoor tour this year! In light of 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. We are monitoring the local guidelines and remain flexible in our planning according to the level of threat in our city.

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
For your safety and the safety of those around you, masks are required for the duration of your tour visit. Masks must be worn by all guests and volunteers, including those who have been vaccinated against Covid-19.
2. MAINTAIN A SAFE DISTANCE
In an effort to maintain everyone’s safety, we have limited capacity to each site. In addition you will find signs and barriers throughout the tour to remind you to keep a 6-foot perimeter from those not in your party.
