Since 1972 Dilworth has opened its doors and welcomed friends and neighbors to its charming corner of Charlotte in one of Dilworth's oldest and grandest traditions: the annual Dilworth Home Tour. For decades the tour was held in August in conjunction with the Dilworth Jubilee. Summer heat and changing start of school schedules recently pushed it to a new time--the cooler days of September.
The tour is Dilworth's only fundraiser. The bulk of the proceeds from the tour go to DCA's annual budget, which supports the DCA website, the Dilworth Jubilee, the annual Conquer the Canquer campaign to protect our tree canopy, the Dilworth Quarterly, the Ladies' Holiday and Spring parties, the Dilworth Playgroup, and much more. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales is also donated to the Dilworth Cares focus agency of the year.
