Events Description

VHF is taking the spirit of the tour online for 2020

VHF is putting a spotlight on heritage homes, their history, design and the distinct character of Vancouver’s diverse neighbourhoods from September 15th to 30th. Instead of bringing over 1,000 people together for a one-day tour, VHF will present several virtual events as well as self-guided tour ideas you can take whenever you like, and more. See below for events you can register for now, and check back for updates soon.

2020 would have marked the 18th anniversary of the Heritage House Tour, our largest annual event of the year. Due to the ongoing public health situation, the tour is not able to proceed in its usual format this time. We look forward to its return next year and hope you will join us for these alternative activities in the meantime.

The annual tour offers a great way to learn about local history and heritage places, highlighting historic homes and heritage buildings in diverse neighbourhoods while also raising much-needed funding for VHF programs and projects. While it will look different this year, our goals remain the same.

A Virtual Stroll in Marpole | Wednesday, September 16 | 7pm – 8pm

Join us to explore local history and heritage from home on this virtual walking tour with local historian, author and seasoned walking tour guide, John Atkin.

History on the Street: Vancouver’s House Styles | Tuesday, September 22 | 7pm – 8:30pm

Find out how well you know your house styles on this exploration through the decades with artist and author, Michael Kluckner and hosted by VHF Special Projects Manager, Jessica Quan.

A Colour Primer: Vancouver’s Historical Paint Schemes | Tuesday, September 29 | 1pm – 2pm

Vancouver’s houses feature a wide array of exterior colour schemes. In this informative and visual session, heritage consultant Donald Luxton will explain the changing use of colour and discuss how it can complete an authentic restoration.
