news and events
The College Hill neighborhood has a strong sense of community, and is home to many traditions and annual events.

Welcoming all Holiday Lights enthusiasts to College Hill Neighborhood on December 7th AND 8th (that's right, TWO dates this year!). This family-friendly affair will include live music, carolers, treats, prizes, live nativity, and a beautiful tour of our College Hill lights! East Heights United Methodist Church is where the 30-minute tours will start and finish as you experience the excitement of the holidays viewing the beautiful lights, enjoying the music, and winning prizes along the way. Tickets are $10 per person with a $40 per family maximum (kids 3 and under are free!), and will be available to purchase: IN-PERSON on December 2nd at Traditions (3220 E Douglas Ave) or ONLINE starting December 3rd. Tickets are first come first served so be sure to organize your groups early. We can't wait to see you there!

Children from College Hill are invited each year to find Easter Eggs and candy that the Easter Bunny, who is there also, has "hidden" in the grass of College Hill Park. The Bunny leads all children on a parade that is a lot of fun for the kids and their families. This event generally lasts for about an hour in the afternoon and there is no charge.

The tour occurs in June of each year and involves numerous gardens at the homes of College Hill residents that have been made available for public viewing. The event is well attended and requires a $5 ticket for the entire tour that may be purchased at any of the tables at the entrance of each garden location. Signs lead interested persons to one of the gardens and map locations and information about all gardens are available with the purchase of each ticket. This is a pleasant walking tour or all gardens can be driven to. The tour generally combines dialog relating to the numerous architectural features of College Hill homes, sculpture, streetscapes and landscaping. The event can take as little as one hour or as much as four, depending on one's pace and interest.

Each month the pool is open a cookout and swim party is scheduled to enjoy this College Hill Amenity and hang out with your College Hill Friends 6:15pm-8:15pm. A donation of $5 buys dinner and swimming at the pool is included for the evening. The money raised allows us to buy chaise lounge chairs for the pool and extend the City schedule when possible.

This event occurs annually the 3rd Sunday in September from 4-6pm and provides all residents of College Hill an opportunity to get together after pool season and before the cold weather hits. Small fair type games are available, a bounce house is donated, a clown is on hand to blow up balloons. Good family fun is had by all. Burgers, hot dogs and other treats are for purchase and some local businesses donate refreshments. There is no charge for this event.

The Great College Hill Residential District has many traditions and events that are not official College Hill Neighborhood Association activities, but are fun, enjoyable and part of the culture of the area. Halloween Street, the St. James Oyster Feed, the Victory in the Valley Garage Sale, shopping along Douglas, playing tennis in College Hill Park, walking through the residential neighborhood, listening to jazz in Clifton Square, safely biking on the residential streets and park of College Hill, and eating at the many home owned and operated restaurants are a few of these traditions. Have fun.
