Every year, the Friends of NJ Festival Orchestra hold a fundraiser that showcases some of the most distinguished homes in the city. The money raised from this highly anticipated event helps finance the performances put on by the New Jersey Festival Orchestra each year. The Westfield Tour of Notable Homes 2019 takes place the day before Mother’s Day and features four very different houses located around the city.

Westfield Tour of Notable Homes 2019
The homes on this year’s tour include a beautiful 1920s manor home, a modern take on a Tudor-style mansion, the design of an eco-conscious architect, and a recently constructed Southside home with a definite nod to the West Coast lifestyle. At each home along the Westfield Tour of Notable Homes, guests have the chance to win some awesome door prizes. Members of Westfield’s Junior Musical Club perform live at each stop. Local vendors provide tidbits and hors d’oeuvres along the way as well. Don’t forget to purchase tickets for the luxury raffles when you’re on your tour, too. Remember, all money raised directly benefits the New Jersey Festival Orchestra.
This is a self-guided tour. Take as much time as you want at each location. You can visit them in any order. A map will be provided once you purchase your tickets. Wear comfortable shoes because you’ll be doing some walking around. And, above all else, have fun.
