The homes on tour this year represent exquisite examples of some of the Early 20th Century’s most popular architectural styles. Included in this year’s collection will be the first home built in the District, a classic Greek Revival; and two houses that were designated among the Top Ten Most Beautiful Homes in Dallas by D Magazine — one, an Italian Renaissance Style palazzo and the other, an English Cotswold Style Manor House. Also featured are are a stately 1914 Georgian Mode stunner designed by renowned architects Hal Thomson and Marion Fooshee; and an impressive Jacobethan Style Tudor with Palladian and Georgian influences. 

Guests can travel between all tour stops on air-conditioned mini-coaches staffed by neighborhood tour guides who’ll share interesting facts and details about The District. Those interested in a more vintage mode of transportation can amble down the avenue in horse-drawn carriages. Both the coaches and carriages are provided with our compliments, at no charge.

When it’s time for a break, relax and refresh in Savage Park with freshly prepared food and beverages served all throughout the weekend from Hamburger Man with freshly baked treats from JD’s Chippery– plus an assortment of festive Food Trucks offering a variety of menus, including Cousins Maine Lobster, and Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe. Beverage service will include soft drinks, hard cider, beer, and wine.

On the main stage in Savage Park, there will be live entertainment throughout the weekend, performed by area talent. Along the median in front of the park, guests can browse the displays of local artisans who will be showcasing their wares, everything from artwork and custom candles to handmade jewelry, pottery, and handicrafts.
