2018 Shadyside House Tour
This year’s House Tour is Sunday, September 23rd, 2018 from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM. This is a self-guided tour where we will be showcasing 6-7 private homes in the beautiful Shadyside neighborhood. Whether you purchase your tickets in advance or are buying them the day of the tour, you must go to Winchester Thurston School on Ellsworth Avenue. Everything begins at the school. No one will be answering the phone on tour day since we will all be taking part in the tour. No tickets will be sold anywhere other than the school on tour day!
We will have complimentary buses circulating between the homes on the day of the tour. The tour ends at 4:00 PM. Please exercise patience as traffic is unpredictable. No photography is allowed in the homes and no animals are allowed to be brought in to these private homes even if they are being held.
Tickets are $20 each in advance and $25 the day of the tour. Children 6 years of age and under get in for free.
You can purchase your tickets one of three ways. You may purchase them at Eureka! Chocolates and Gifts at 735 Copeland Street in Shadyside. (Eureka! is across from Starbucks) or at The Inn on Negley (corner of S. Negley and Elmer Street) These tickets will be available until 5:00 PM the day before the tour.
You may purchase them online. If you are purchasing your tickets through our website via Paypal there is an additional fee for the handling cost of those online purchases. If you purchase your ticket via Paypal, print out your email confirmation of that purchase and take it with you to the school on tour day. We will not be emailing you a separate E-ticket as we have done in the past! We have found that to be redundant and a waste of paper. The confirmation email with how many tickets you purchased is all you need.
You may also send a check payable to The Shadyside Action Coalition and a self addressed stamped envelope to PO Box 10149 Pittsburgh PA 15232 and we can mail you tickets. The cutoff date to have tickets mailed to you is Monday, September 17th.
All advance tickets will end at 5:00 PM on September 22nd/strong>
The ticket table will again be at Winchester Thurston Lower School on Ellsworth Avenue.
We will once again be partnering with East End Cooperative Ministries and asking people to bring a non perishable item with them the day of the tour to help EECM with their Food Bank. They do great work in the East End. For more information on who they are and what they do please visit their website at http://www.eecm.org
