One of the best-loved weekends in Salisbury, North Carolina is quickly approaching!

The 39th Annual October Tour™ of Historic Homes is Saturday & Sunday, October 11th and 12th.

If you've considered moving to Salisbury, NC ~ the October Tour Weekend is one of the best times to visit.  With your October Tour ticket, you'll get a glimpse of some of our fine historic homes, get to stroll our beautiful neighborhoods, and visit locally owned and operated restaurants and shops. 


After Saturday's portion of the tour, a free reception is held on the lawn of the Hall House Museum from 5-7 in the evening, where artists exhibit their paintings done during the day throughout the tour, and a local winery serves its fare. In the evening, take in live music or a play at any number of venues in our Historic Downtown.  If you arrive on Friday evening, October 10th, Downtown Salisbury hosts the October Tour Friday Night Out on the Town ~ take horse & carriage rides throughout the downtown and visit the shops that stay open late to greet you.  Take in a wine-tasting at the Salisbury Wine Shop, purchase handmade artisan jewelry and pottery at the Southern Spirit Gallery or Pottery 101 Gallery, and listen to live music with a burger and a beer at Uncle Buck's All American Pub & Grill or with a glass of fine wine at Cartucci's Grapevine ~ all along our award winning Main Street.
