It is with great regret that the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown announces that the current COVID-19 pandemic necessitates the cancellation of the 2020 Bucks County Designer House & Gardens tours and all related activities scheduled for later this spring. This decision has been made in accordance with guidance from both the Centers for Disease Control and Doylestown Health System medical leadership. As difficult as it is to cancel what would have been our 45th annual event, we are confident that doing so is in the best interests of the community and everyone involved.
The Designer House Committee is very grateful for the generosity of the owners of Creekside for allowing us the use of their lovely property and for the support of our designers, landscapers, vendors, boutique owners, sponsors, volunteers and visitors. We are seeking a means of sharing the work of our exceptionally talented 2020 team with those who would have visited the house and will keep you informed of our plans in this regard.
For those of you who have already purchased tickets to tour the Designer House, please consider making this a donation for the work that the Designer House supports, including Doyletown Health/Hospital and assistance for persons in our community in need of emergency shelter, healthcare, etc. No action is necessary if this is your choice. If you prefer, please use the “Contact Us” through the link on this page to request a refund. If you are interested in making a separate donation in any amount please use the “Make a Donation” link.
In the meantime, we wish all of you and your families continued good health during these difficult times. When things return to normal, the VIA looks forward to welcoming you in person to our 2021 Designer House.
