Back Door Kitchen Tour

The 2018 Back Door Kitchen Tour has been canceled. We will announce the homes for the 2019 Tour in the fall of 2019. 
Discounted Tickets ($25) will be available in advance of the tour. Tickets can be purchased online with a credit card or a PayPal account via ROW's PayPal link. Online tickets are picked up at the Bellamy mansion the day of the tour. Ticket purchasers should bring their PayPal receipt when they pick up their tickets at the Bellamy Mansion.
Full Price Tickets will be available the day of the Tour.
Proceeds from the Tour
The Back Door Kitchen Tour is the only fundraiser for Residents of Old Wilmington (ROW), a nonprofit, all volunteer, neighborhood association. Proceeds go back into our community for beautification, preservation, restoration, and other improvements through ROW projects and grants.  If you have questions, please contact us at bdkt@rowilmington.org.
Most famously, ROW used BDKT proceeds to purchase the statue of the Venus Flytrap by Paul Hill, titled "Southern Hospitality," located on the River Walk at the foot of Market Street. 
Southern Hospitality is a popular addition to the downtown Riverfront, and a graceful homage to the plant that grows only in this area. 
ROW has donated over $60,000 to area nonprofits thanks to BDKT proceeds.
