31 Oct 14th Tour of Kitchens Announced for February 11, 2023
The Coral Gables Community Foundation is excited to announce the 14th Annual Tour of Kitchens. Guests will be inspired as they visit Coral Gables’ most exquisite private residence kitchens, indulge in bites from the City’s top restaurants, spirits samples and shop curated home goods from local merchants.
Tickets are $125.
Proceeds from the Tour of Kitchens benefit the Foundation’s pivotal outreach efforts including the Culinary Arts program and its students at Coral Gables High School.
Where does the Tour start?
The Tour begins at 9 AM at the Opening Event in the courtyard at the Shops at Merrick Park. Here you will check in to receive your wristband – required to enter each home – and the Tour of Kitchens program booklet – which contains the map and addresses of all the Tour stops. Parking is available in the garage at Merrick Park. Metered parking is also available on the streets surrounding.
When can I start Touring?
The homes on the Tour open at 10 AM. The opening event/registration begins at 9 AM and ends at 11 AM.
At 10:00 AM, you may begin visiting the stops in any order you choose until 2:30 PM. Each stop will contain a decadent food sample from a local restaurant, kitchen-related items for sale, and a stunning table-setting display by a local store for dining room inspiration.
Do I have to print my ticket?
Nope! You can check in at the Opening Event at the Shops at Merrick Park with your email confirmation or just your name. You will then receive your wristband. It is important to keep your wristband on all day as you will not be granted entry into any of the stops without your wristband.
