Park Hill Home Tour & Street Fair Set For Sunday, Sept. 12
Park Hill, with roots dating back to the end of the 19th century, is known for its diverse style of homes — ranging from historic Victorian and the classic Denver Square, to modest mid-century.
Residents and visitors alike love the tree-lined streets and parkways, the meticulously maintained gardens, charming strips of retail shops and restaurants interspersed within the residential areas, and the neighborhood’s central and convenient location.
The Park Hill Home Tour began in 1978, the brainchild of a local realtor designed to showcase the rich history and diverse architecture of the neighborhood. Over the years, the ticketed event has evolved into an important community fundraiser and tradition. Running concurrently the day of the Home Tour is a free Street Fair, which features local vendors, food trucks, live entertainment, children’s activities, and a wine and beer garden.
This year’s Home Tour & Street Fair, set for Sunday, Sept. 12, once again celebrates our neighborhood, our greater community and all that brings us together.
The past 18 months have been tough, but we are slowly emerging from our COVID-19-induced cocoons. Thus the theme this year is Metamorphosis. In the interest of health and safety, this year’s event will take place entirely outdoors. Check out page 6 for a sneak preview of the six homes on the tour that exemplify the variety of architecture and the creativity of the homeowners. Tickets are available at parkhillhometour.org.
And be sure to head over to the free street fair at Montview and Forest Parkway to enjoy a day of fun and community.
