MARIETTA – Explore six of Marietta’s most beautiful and historic homes on Dec. 1 and 2 as the 32nd Annual Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Home Tour highlights six private homes in the Church-Cherokee Street Historic District.

Each of the homes, lovingly preserved and restored, will be filled with antique collections and decorations for the season. During the tour, homeowners invite visitors inside for a unique opportunity to discover how they incorporate these historic treasures into their everyday lives.

Along the route, many of Marietta’s historic public buildings decorate and open for tours. This year’s newest addition is the Marietta Fire Museum. Available on the tour, The Bistro, which serves light lunches, also provides restrooms.

Event activities kick off on Friday evening, Nov. 30 when the Marietta Pilgrimage presents “The Marietta Pilgrimage Gala,” a glamorous black-tie party at The Whitlock Inn. The home tours begin on Saturday, Dec. 1 with the Day Tour offered from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and a Candlelight Tour featuring three of the tour homes from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Day Tour resumes on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Shuttle service will be provided.

The Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Home Tour consistently receives recognition in the Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top Twenty Events in the Southeast” and a spot in the “Top 100 Events in North America” by the American Bus Association. The Marietta Visitors Bureau and Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society co-sponsors the event.
