Updated Communication from Kathleen Sipio, Executive Director of the Celebration Foundation
The Celebration Foundation has been monitoring the global outbreak of COVID-19, the coronavirus through announcements and updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and the Florida Department of Health since our communication on March 12th, 2020. Effective on Sunday, March 15th the CDC recommended that no gatherings with 50 people or more take place for the next eight weeks to slow the coronavirus. In addition, CROA has announced that all indoor and outdoor facility usage has been closed until April 30th.
As a result of the above directives, the Celebration Foundation’s programs and events are modified as follows:
- Thriving In Place – All events in March & April will be cancelled. Our transportation service line will continue to be available to schedule appointments.
- Celebration Lifelong – Session #3 is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later time.
- Concert Series – Balsam Range concert scheduled for March 28th will be postponed and if possible, rescheduled. OPO Duke Ellington concert scheduled for April 17th will also be postponed and rescheduled if possible.
- Signature Event – “Boots, Bowties & Bling” will also be postponed and rescheduled if possible.
We will continue to communicate periodically with updates on rescheduled events. As a result of further CDC guidelines, the Celebration Foundation staff will be working remotely with limited in-office access at this time. We will be available by phone Monday thru Friday from 9am to 5pm. We encourage you to call or email us, stay connected and ask questions.
As we continue to make decisions with the overall concern for the health and safety of our members, staff, instructors and volunteers, know that we are working together to keep our community connected with the Foundation during this time. Our sincere gratitude for your patience, understanding and continued support.

The Holiday Home Tour & Winter Wonderland is one of Central Florida’s most loved home tours. For over two decades, it has attracted thousands of visitors to the town of Celebration.
The Holiday Home Tour is an annual two-day event occurring on a weekend in December. Residents of the Celebration community decorate the exterior and interior of their home for the holidays and event attendees drive around the community to each of the homes/stops and are welcome to go inside the homes and admire the decorations. Homes may be condos, townhouses, cottages, or estate homes.
The self-guided tours were founded by Celebration’s Women’s Club in 1997. Celebration Foundation presented the Holiday Home Tour for the first time in 2016. In addition to the tour’s fabulously decorated homes, Celebration Foundation included a hospitality stop at Celebration Town Hall for attendees to experience a Winter Wonderland display of delightfully decorated holiday trees and exquisite tablescapes.
Winter Wonderland VIP Reception: Friday, December 6, 2019 at 7 p.m. at Celebration Town Hall
Home Tour: Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 3-9 p.m. and Sunday, December 8, 2019 from 1-5 p.m.
Please note this is a self-guided tour that takes approximately two hours. Guests can drive to each home. Celebration residents have graciously decorated and opened their homes for the tour. Not all homes are handicap accessible. The Winter Wonderland is accessible.
