About the Tour
About the Tour
Now in its 15th year, the Tour of Kitchens is a self-guided tour of beautiful homes and kitchens in Coral Gables. Taking place on Saturday, February 10, 2024, the event draws 900 local affluent foodies and home-design enthusiasts from Coral Gables, and surrounding neighborhoods for an experience allowing guests to peek into beautiful private residences while indulging in bites and sips from local restaurants and spirits brands.
Your sponsorship of the Tour of Kitchens benefits the Coral Gables Community Foundation and the Culinary Arts program at Coral Gables High School, providing scholarships for the students to attend culinary school, funding for the maintenance of an organic vegetable garden on the school’s campus, industrial kitchen equipment, ovens, and more. This event has grown into a community favorite and is supported by the City of Coral Gables. Additionally, funds are used to support the Foundation’s annual college scholarship and grant making efforts.
Join us for the Closing Event “AFTER PARTY.” Unwind with live music and food, and discounts at many of the shops and restaurants at The Shops at Merrick Park.
