Christmas House Tour

Joy to the World! Celebrate the Spirit of St. Albans

A St. Albans’ annual tradition since 1983, the Christmas House Tour is the primary fundraiser of the Parents’ Association and a great community undertaking. The funds raised help the Parents’ Association support the school through faculty grants and bonuses, contributions to the STRIVE Campaign, and other important programs.

2016 Christmas House Tour on December 2 and 3

The 34th annual Christmas House Tour is in the historic Kalorama neighborhood. On the tour are the diplomatic residences of the Ambassador of Ecuador, the Ambassador of Ireland, the Ambassador of the Netherlands, the Russian Cultural Center, and the beautiful home of Gloria Story Dittus.

Back at the Close is a shopping boutique with a wide variety of vendors and a lovely luncheon in the Cafritz Refectory.

Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
