Lakewood Home Festival - November 13 - 15

Read LATEST press release about the 2015 Lakewood Home Festival

 

The Lakewood Home Festival began in 1976 when the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA staged a tour showcasing five distinctive and historic neighborhood homes as a fundraiser to purchase playground equipment for kindergarten children. The 2014 Home Festival was sponsored by Comerica Bank, The Advocate, and Tom Thumb. Last year we raised $150,000 for Lakewood Elementary, J.L. Long Middle School, and Woodrow Wilson High School. It has evolved into a series of fantastic events and activities listed below: 

  • Home Festival eNewsletterThe Home Festival eNewsletter is sent out once a month September through November. It is an easy way to get a preview of the homes, purchase Home Festival Tickets, and keep informed about the best Home Festival in East Dallas. Click here to sign-up for the eNewsletter

  • Piggy Bank Challenge - The Piggy Bank Challenge is a friendly competition between each Lakewood Elementary classroom. They participate to collect the most change for their classroom’s piggy bank. A fabulous prize will be awarded to the class that collects the most money during the challenge.
  • Auction Party - The Auction Party is 'the' social kick-off of the Home Tour! This year’s Friday Night Fever Auction Party is sponsored by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and will open its doors on Friday November 13, 7:00 PM, at the Belo Mansion in the downtown Dallas Arts District.
  • Home Tour - The Home Tour features distinctive Lakewood-area homes. It is the perfect opportunity to see some of the latest architectural and design trends as well as historical homes restored to look more beautiful than when they were built.

Our volunteers are what makes this festival great! The success depends on the dedication and generosity of volunteers. We partner with neighbors, friends, families, and groups who volunteer to staff the homes, the Market and Café, and the Auction Party. We will open up volunteer registration in September.
