Celebrating 16 years supporting the community!
Virtual Pickering College Holiday Home Tour kicks off Holiday Season in York Region.
Join us for the Pickering College virtual Holiday Home Tour. Revel in the magic of the tour without the drive or heavy coat and boots. Get festive, enjoy a delicious meal, flavourful cocktail and look forward to a holiday experience to dazzle! This exciting new format takes tour goers through properties that could not be featured on a live tour, each decorated in holiday splendor to an inspiring theme, chosen in collaboration by an exceptional team of designers, decorators, and florists.
Relax in the comfort of your home while designers guide event guests through the tour homes providing highlights throughout. Following the tour, stay with us for a live chat to ask questions about our tour homes or for tips on your own design project. Tour guests are invited to email in a photo of their design challenge for complimentary zoom consultation with a Holiday Home Tour designer.
The Pickering College Holiday Home Tour is an important fundraiser for our school, with 10 per cent of proceeds directed to The Food Bank of York Region. “As a non-profit organization, we understand our responsibility to give back and to serve society.” Over the years, the Pickering College Holiday Home Tour volunteers are proud to have supported the York Region charitable organizations listed below.

About Pickering College – Founded in 1842: Pickering College is an independent Day and Boarding school for boys and girls from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. Founded in 1842 as a Quaker school, and established in our current Newmarket location in 1909, the mission of Pickering College is to instil in each individual the ability and responsibility to make the world greater, better and more beautiful than they discovered it. Our vision is to develop innovative, courageous, and compassionate global citizens who take action, true to Quaker values.
As part of our Quaker values, we celebrate diversity in all aspects of the school. This is reflected both in our Global Leadership Program and our commitment to a co-educational environment. Our unique approach includes educating and developing the ‘whole child’ through a focus on academic excellence, co-curricular distinction, and character and leadership development. We pride ourselves in providing an individualized approach to learning.
