PreTour 2013 | Saturday, June 29
More than 600 of German Village’s closest friends and neighbors gather for fellowship and an exclusive sneak peek at Haus und Garten Tour addresses in our special, signature evening. PreTour celebrates the character and characters that make German Village so special. Ticket-holding guests are treated to an early tour of the 2013 featured homes and gardens prior to opening to the public on Sunday, June 30. Many homes offer PreTour participants a look at areas of their home that were not be on Tour!
The homes preview is followed by cocktail hour and dinners throughout German Village thrown by our generous hosts.
5-7 p.m. | Guests will stroll along a private tour of homes and gardens in German Village
7-8:15 p.m. | Guests will see and be seen at the annual Willow Street cocktail party
8:30 p.m. | Guests will attend an intimate dinner of their choice at a private home in the Village or attend the community-centered Party on the Platz of the German Village Meeting Haus, where they dance the night away. POP guests also get their photos snapped by Soapbox for commemorative photo strips to take home.
Tickets: $150 for non-members | $125 for GVS members (on sale May 12)
Private dinners are hosted by German Village residents and celebrate the theme of the evening: Lights-Camera-Dinner. You might be dining on a seven-course chef’s dinner for eight friends, or boogeying down at a poolside BBQ for 20. The choice is yours!
Party on the Platz
The tent party is an exciting alternative to a private dinner. In its third year as part of the PreTour festivities, the tent party is for those who want to nibble on chic hors d’oeuvres, sip signature cocktails and dance the night away. The tent party’s maximum capacity is higher than at a private dinner, so grab your friends! Five Village restaurants will supply food for POP. Our thanks to Barcelona, G. Michael’s, Kittie’s Hand Crafted Cakes, Pistacia Vera and Curio.
New This Year:
The Young Professionals option for PreTour is a $75 ticket (limited to those 35 and younger) that allows you to tour the homes on Saturday, June 29, then attend the cocktail party on Willow Street. No dinner or Party on the Platz with these passes, but YPs can join the Saturday fun for half the price!
