THIS WEEKEND / SAN DIEGO’S OLD HOUSE FAIR / JUNE 18
Historic South Park will really be jumping during the Old House Fair & Vintage Row on Saturday, June 18 from 10am to 4pm. This fun annual fair at 30th and Beech Streets offers a historic home tour, free street fair with exhibitors, artists and vendors, and a neighborhood walking tour.
As an Old House Fair sponsor, Save Our Heritage Org will return with our Ask the Old House Experts booth, always a lively hub. A variety of community experts will answer questions on everything from house research and designation to proper restoration techniques to rehabilitating old windows. And what a great occasion to join SOHO or renew your membership!
Next to SOHO's booth, you can buy gorgeous geranium plants cultivated in our Geranium George program, which benefits the Marston House Museum & Gardens.
OLD HOUSE FAIR HOME TOUR
A $25 home tour ticket gets you into five historic homes — four of which are more than 100 years old — and on and off a trolley that makes a loop all day. Most homes are within walking distance of each other. (Sorry, no photos, strollers or restrooms in the homes.)
The vendors cater to old house dwellers, offering products like paint and flooring, vintage furniture, restoration and repair services and landscape design. You'll recognize a number of them as SOHO members.
For refreshment, check out the Buona Forchetta pizza party, a South Park Brewing boutique biergarten and live music on stage.
