The Tremont Trek home tour, founded in 2002, was designed to showcase the vibrancy of the Tremont neighborhood and spotlight the fabulous restaurants, art galleries & shops and diversity of architecture.
Originally intended to connect neighbors through a lively progressive dinner party at six different private homes, much to the delight of the Trek committee, more than 80% of the home tour guests each year are suburbanites, curious to see what is happening in this hip urban neighborhood.
The Trek raises funds that will promote and enhance the Tremont neighborhood.
