Following a triumphant return earlier this year in South Pasadena, Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts announced today the dates and location of the 2023 Pasadena Showcase House of Design, one of the nation’s oldest, largest, and most successful home and garden tours. The 58th Showcase House will reimagine Stewart House, a 1933 grand colonial estate with spectacular acreage in a storied Pasadena neighborhood. Public tours of the Showcase House will take place April 23 – May 21, 2023. Golden Tickets are now on sale.
“We feel incredibly lucky to present the Stewart House as our 2023 Pasadena Showcase House of Design,” said Vikki Sung, 2022/23 President of Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts. “Featured in 1983 as the 19th Showcase House, we are revisiting this incredible property, stewarded by the same family for nearly forty years, to reintroduce this majestic estate to a new generation.”
Designed by Marston & Maybury, one of Pasadena’s most celebrated architectural partnerships, Stewart House harkens back to the days of gracious architecture and quintessential Showcase with over 11,000 square feet of living space sited on two acres of carefully landscaped and exquisitely manicured grounds.

Following just four short months of renovation, over 25,000 guests will tour through the 30+ interior and landscape design spaces highlighting cutting-edge trends in high-style living. Guests can expect the famous Shops at Showcase, offering a variety of boutique and craft merchants, as well as several on-site restaurants offering hot meals, grab & go snacks, as well as beer, wine, and cocktails. Entertainment and programming is planned throughout the event showcasing local musicians, speakers, special tours, and more.
The Pasadena Showcase House of Design is the primary fundraiser benefit for Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. During the 2021/22 program year, the organization contributed $500,000 to local nonprofits supporting music and arts programs, and since 1948, has contributed more than $24 million.
Golden Tickets (valid any day or time) are now on sale and can be purchased at pasadenashowcase.org/tickets. Timed entry tickets will go on sale in early February.
