Waterfront Village’s Annual Home Tour Celebrates Southwest DC



Waterfront Village’s annual home tour is a beloved local event that celebrates the architecture, people and stories that make Southwest DC so special. 

The house tour, supported by local businesses and organizations, showcases the hidden residential gems of Southwest DC. The tour highlights the history and diversity of the community, and the houses, apartments, churches and commercial buildings in the area are a tribute to the architecture and styles of the past few centuries.

Proceeds from the home tour will support the Village’s programming and services for older adults in Southwest DC and the Navy Yard.  Services include: rides to medical appointments; telephone and in-home check-in visits, emergency grocery and prescription delivery, light home repairs and technology assistance.  To prevent social isolation, a serious issue for older adults, the Village conducts 15-20 events and activities each month. 



Advanced tickets are currently available for the October 8.  Prices for advance tickets is $20 per person, while tickets purchased on the tour date will be $25.  To purchase your ticket, click Homes of the Southwest Waterfront Tickets.


Volunteers Needed

More than 50 volunteers ensure that the home tour experience is a good one for all participants.  Their presence underscores that the community comes together to celebrate the neighborhood every year during the home tour.
