This event may not be in our neighborhood; but the Sacramento Old City Association (SOCA) is a good local group that’s doing important work to preserve historic homes and improve neighborhoods in Sacramento, so it’s well worth mentioning here. Plus it looks like it might be fun.
SOCA is holding its 34th Annual Home Tour on Sunday, September 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The tour will feature historic homes in the Boulevard Park neighborhood. A street fair will be held at the 21st Street Esplanade between F and G Streets; artisans will be showing their work, and there will be opportunities to learn how to research the history of your own house. Plus the Sacramento Capitol A’s Model A Club will be displaying their antique cars throughout the tour.
Tickets are $18.00 in advance, $20.00 on the day of the tour, and $19.00 for bicyclists. Advance tickets may be purchased at: Green Sacramento (1931 H Street); Joann’s Elegant Gifts (1019 L Street); Collected Works & Other Fine Gifts (4524 Freeport Blvd.); The Avid Reader (1600 Broadway); and 57th Street Antique Mall (875 57th Street). On the day of the tour, tickets may be purchased at the street fair on the 21st Street Esplanade between F and G Streets.
