Home Tour 2014

Thank you for attending our Home Tour and Festival! We hope you will come again in two years when we do it again. Please let us know what you think by answering these quick questions.
Thank you from the Trinity Park Neighborhood Association!

The Trinity Park Neighborhood Association will be holding its bi-annual fund-raising* Home Tour on Sunday October 19th. Please come and be a part of it! Now in its third decade, this year our Tour will feature 11 beautifully restored historic homes in and around Trinity Park.

This year we will also be holding our first Arts and Architecture Festival in conjunction with the Tour. We will close the block of Watts Street from W. Trinity to Minerva and invite architects, contractors, and renovation artisans (who have done work on these renovations) as well as artists, crafters, and other related vendors to set up a table and display their services and wares. Looking for someone to repair your old, bumpy-glass windows? Festival organizers have found a craftsman who will be on site to demonstrate his skills at refurbishing windows, doors, cabinets and the like. Thinking about a new HVAC system? An expert in the field will be at the festival to tell you about the latest technology in heating and cooling your home. Thinking about a home security system or an emergency service provider when catastrophe hits? They will be there. Want a new piece of art to dress up a room or garden? There will be artists galore to offer you bright new accessories for your historic (or not so historic) home.

The Tour and Festival will be open from 11am to 5 pm and tickets are $20.

Tickets will be available on the day of the event (October 19th) at the ticket booth in the middle of the Festival on the 400 block of Watts St. Cash, check, or credit card payments will be accepted.

Tickets purchased online should be printed out and brought with you to the event.

Food and beverages can be consumed at the Festival and between homes, but will not be permitted in the homes (except closed beverage containers of water). Food trucks, music and a few tables and chairs will be there to give you a break or refresh you for more walking. Smoking is prohibited except on sidewalks between homes. Please do not litter.

Volunteers are needed to be docents in homes and as support to the Festival. Please call/write Mimi Kessler at 919-599-2892 or mimikdurhamnc@yahoo.com for further information.

*Why have a fundraising event? The Trinity Park Neighborhood Association provides support for the betterment of the neighborhood, to non-profits whose work impacts urban life, and to the Trinity Park Foundation, which owns The Trinity Park (at W.Trinity and Watts).
