The town of Essex opens their homes this December to support a broad spectrum of services for at-risk children and their families through the Child & Family Agency of Southeastern CT. On Saturday, December 7, 2019, The Essex River Valley Auxiliary presents a self-guided walking tour through seven distinctive houses, beautifully decorated for the holidays in downtown Essex.  Visitors can also get a jump start on their holiday shopping by visiting the Holiday Boutique, featuring hand-crafted clothing, bespoke jewelry, unique home décor, festive holiday floral arrangements and more.  The Holiday Boutique opens at 9:30 A.M. and is located at Essex Town Hall at 29 West Avenue.   Santa’s Café located in the boutique will offer snacks and refreshments.  

All proceeds from the holiday house tour benefit the programs and services provided by the Child & Family Agency of Southeastern CT to families in need. The holiday house tour presented in Essex is a fabulous opportunity to see some of Essex’s historical homes that showcase elegant, architectural features in their original settings. Tickets will be available for purchase after September 1st online for $30 in advance or $40 on the day of the event at the Essex Town Hall at 29 West Avenue, Essex, CT.
