19 Nov The Marietta Pilgrimage: A Christmas Home Tour
Organized in by the Marietta Visitors Bureau and Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, The Marietta Pilgrimage returns for its 33rd year. A cornerstone of the local holiday season, the Pilgrimage has become a community tradition and is one of the best ways to experience Marietta.
This year’s tour showcases six homes located in the Forest Hills Historic District. Each of the homes have been carefully restored and will be fully dressed and decked out in holiday spirit. Part of what makes this event so special is that it allows access inside private homes not usually available to the public—granting a glimpse into the interior of places we’ve grown so fond of from the outside.
The Pilgrimage also includes several public sites including the Gone with the Wind Museum, Old Zion Baptist Church, and many more. While you’re at it, you can check off your holiday gift list because the shops on the square host a variety of some of the best shopping in the area. You’re guaranteed to find that perfect little something for all your loved ones. So, grab your friends and make it the perfect weekend getaway.
The Pilgrimage is the must-see event of your holiday season. Winner of the 2019 Top Twenty Events awarded by the Southeast Tourism Society, the tour has also been featured in Southern Living, and is named a Top 100 Event in North America. Order your tickets online or swing by the Marietta Welcome Center or William Root House the week of the tour to pick up your tickets in person.
