White House Christmas Tours - 2017

White house tours at Christmas holiday season

Christmas at the White House

Every December, the White House is filled with holiday decorations: Christmas trees, wreaths, garland, colorful lights, gingerbread houses, and more. A team of volunteers from across the country work diligently in late November to get the White House ready for the very popular public White House holiday tours.

This year, volunteers will be busy decorating the White House from November 20-27. Applications for volunteers closed on September 30th.

You can view the White House Christmas decorations in December by signing up in advance for a White House tour. These tours are popular, so the sooner you submit your request, the better chance you will have to tour the White House this holiday season.
