Weird Homes Tour excitedly announces its return to Portland for the third annual event on Saturday, June 27, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This one-of-a-kind home tour takes attendees on a journey across the city and into some of the most imaginative, wonderful, and creative homes. The event honors Portland’s culture of individuality by showcasing the artists and collectors who preserve and grow this uniqueness in the spaces they live.

Portland's weirdest homes will open their doors, and owners will answer questions and share their stories about their one-of-a-kind dwelling. Portlandians are welcome to visit the curated selection of homes on a self-paced, self-guided tour that brings visitors inside some of the area’s most remarkable and creative houses owned by collectors, artists, painters, architects, garden lovers and more.

ABOUT WEIRD HOMES TOUR: We are a social impact start-up, created by a team of event veterans that takes care of our people, our planet and makes a profit. We were founded in 2014 by Chelle and David J. Neff and held our first tour in Austin that same year. We take our profits and put them back into our communities by investing in smart, well-run nonprofits and other social impact businesses. After our first successful tours in Austin, we brought the Weird Homes Tour to Houston in 2016 and have now expanded nationwide. We promise to value what makes our event cities great. We exist to share the story of past, present, and future culture, as well as preserving and protecting what’s unique in each great city. For more information, visit
