The Cabbagetown Preservation Association will be holding their tour of Cabbagetown homes this weekend on September 15, 2013 from noon to 4pm.
The tour of Cabbagetown, a Heritage Conservation District in downtown Toronto, offers design enthusiasts an amazing inside look at historic and updated Victorian homes.
For $30, the self-guided tour takes attendees through the area north of Gerrard Street and east of Parliament Street. Many of the local restaurants participate in the annual event offering deals to ticket holders, as well.

Now in its 35th year, the tour was originally created by realtors to showcase the unique design in the area, which at the time was neglected and at risk of being forgotten.
This year the tour features both private and public housing within the community.
Celebrating their 100th year of public housing the Spruce Court complex will open its doors for the tour, celebrating its historical context within the community.
Proceeds from the event are reinvested in the Cabbagetown Preservation Association’s programs to better the community.
