MARIETTA - The Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Home Tour returns the weekend of December 4 and 5. This year, attendees will have the opportunity to see inside five beautifully decorated homes located in Marietta’s Kennesaw Avenue Historic District.
The five houses include: The Cox-Brown-Parker House at 109 Maple Avenue, the Magnolia Cottage at 103 Maple Avenue, the Northcutt-James-Ferrer House at 97 Maple Avenue, the Gentry House at 76 Maple Avenue, and the Mayes-Crissey-Clements House at 140 Stewart Avenue.
Pre-sale tickets for the event can be purchased online at mariettapilgrimage.com. Tickets can be purchased in person the week of the tour at the Marietta Welcome Center and William Root House Museum.
Community members can sign up to volunteer as house docents. Volunteers will receive a complimentary ticket to visit the homes during day tour hours. Sign ups can be found on the Marietta Pilgrimage website.
Marietta Pilgrimage will be adhering to protocols and procedures as recommended by the CDC. Currently, all volunteers and guests will need to wear a mask while inside tour homes and shuttle busses, regardless of vaccination status. Marietta Pilgrimage volunteers and guests are asked to bring a mask. If a volunteer or guest forgets a mask, one will be provided. The Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Gala has been canceled this year.
