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.

  • Children's Art Auction Preview - While our featured Home Tour homeowners prepare for the Home Festival by touching up paint and sprucing up landscapes, students at Lakewood Elementary prepared in another way. Each grade creates a one-of-a-kind piece of art to be auctioned off at the Auction Party.  Each year the art work is displayed at the Children's Art Auction Preview Party at Lakewood Elementary.
  • VIP Party Bus Auction - Take 27 of your closest friends  to the Auction Party on Friday evening and then home again! You can also reserve a spot on the bus and have it take your group to all of the homes on the tour during the day and on the Saturday night  Candlelight Tour.  More details for the 2015 LECPTA Home Tour VIP Bus coming soon! 
  • 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, and the Auction Party. Contribute to your community and sign up today!
