The Short North has come a long way since the first tour of homes 42 years ago.  Neighborhood residents have worked together not only to restore and renovate homes but to build a strong community.  We are proud of what we have accomplished and look forward to greater achievements in the future.

The Short North Tour of Homes and Gardens is an opportunity to celebrate history, art, and design.  It is the Short North Civic Association’s largest fundraiser with proceeds supporting neighborhood activities such as Music in the Air and Screen on the Green as well as permanent improvements such as the landscaped boulevards and planters along Neil Avenue and enhancements to Goodale Park.

The Preview Tour, sponsored by Brothers Drake, is Saturday, September 17 from 4:30 to 7 pm with the $75 ticket including a party following in a beautiful home on Goodale Park.  The Sunday tour, sponsored by Dooley & Co, is from 10 am to 6 pm with complimentary trolleys circling the tour route.

The special home selected for this year’s Preview Party is the residence of Rhett and Nicole Ricart.  Their kitchen was the cover story in a recent edition of Columbus Monthly’s Home Edition.  This is your chance to see more of this beautiful home.

Preview tour and party tickets are $75 and available online.  General tour tickets for Sunday are $15 in advance and $20 day of.  Day of tickets will be sold in front of PNC Bank at 763 Neil Ave.  For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit
