Friends of the New Jersey Festival Orchestra will once again host a fabulous day of touring notable Westfield Homes on May 13, 2017. This year's new crop of amazing homes are a stylish medley of residences representing a wide range of design sensibilities as well as a few truly unique spaces. The tour reflects the area's rich architectural history and showcases some of the hottest new properties in the Westfield area. The tour is self-guided and takes two to three hours. Homes can be seen at any time during the tour hours, 10am to 3pm. The tour also includes live music, luxury raffles, door prize and local vendor tastings.

In addition to four magnificent Westfield residences, two electric Tesla performance vehicles will be on display – the brand new Model X crossover and the Model S sedan, together with a ticketed raffle "Win a Tesla for the Day" with the drawing to take place at close of tour. Winner need not be present to win.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 day of tour. The addresses of the homes will be printed on the tickets and homes can be visited in any order. At your first home you'll pick up a copy of tour program containing descriptions of the homes and an easy-to-follow tour map to each address. 

Make this a full Mother's Day celebration and take in a lunch or brunch along the way! All proceeds will benefit the New Jersey Festival Orchestra. If you'd like to nominate a home for consideration in future tours, please call the NJFO office at 908-232-9400.
