Salisbury House Holly & Ivy Home Tour

  • Overview

    Holly & Ivy has been a signature holiday event for Salisbury House & Gardens for many years. This year, thanks to the support of Applied Art and Technology, our holiday home tour is going semi-virtual! For the safety of all participants, guests will be able to view the event on our online platform, which will include tidbits on the Weeks family & house history as well as virtual tours of both the Salisbury House & multiple private homes! Decorated by local designers/retailers, each room will be adorned in festive holiday décor, providing inspiration for your own home or holiday event.

    Holly & Ivy’s virtual platform opens Friday, December 4 & goes through December 30. Ticket holders will receive the exclusive virtual platform sign-in information via their provided email. Ticket holders will have access to view the virtual tours the entire month of December. The first 250 tickets sold will include a one-time admittance to Salisbury House & Gardens during the month of December to view the festive holiday décor in person. Tours of the participating private homes available to view on the virtual platform only.

    Special timed entry for self-guided tours have been implemented to minimize contact and encourage social distancing. Occupancy levels are restricted in accordance with the mandate set forth by the Governor of Iowa. December hours and entry times are listed below. Ticket holders must call to reserve their time slot in advance by calling 515-274-1777.
