Catholic Charities 6th annual Goshen Christmas House Tour

Goshen – Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster’s 6th annual Goshen Christmas House Tour will kick off the holiday season on Saturday, December 5. Not surprisingly, the beloved event will have a 2020 twist. This year’s Tour will be a self-guided driving event featuring the fun and festive outdoor decorations of homes in the greater Goshen area. To date, more than 20 homes have signed on to light up their homes for Catholic Charities.
The 2020 Goshen Christmas House Tour will be a fun outing for the entire family. Tour passes are just $25 per carload when purchased by December 1, and $35 per carload for passes purchased after the deadline and on the day of the event. Each car pass will include a Tour map highlighting the featured homes, as well as activities for children. All proceeds from the Tour will support Catholic Charities’ emergency food and shelter programs, which help the neediest residents of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties keep a roof over their head and food on the table.

Car passes may be reserved online at For questions, or to reserve by phone, contact Sheila Toohey at 294-5124, ext. 1000, or Check-in and “day-of” car pass sales for the Christmas House Tour will be open from 3 to 6 pm at Burke Catholic High School, 80 Fletcher St., Goshen.
