On Saturday, October 11, ten interesting, inspiring, and intriguing neighborhood homes will open their doors to ticket holders on the annual PSCA Home Tour! A variety of styles are on display throughout this self-guided tour, from Victorian to contemporary, along with a garden or two. All proceeds benefit our neighborhood by helping to fund PSCA efforts such as street cleaning and gardening programs.

Tickets are available online through PayPal, or in person at the General Meeting this Tuesday (cash, check, or cards)! Get your ticket for $20 in advance or $25 the day of the tour.

Your ticket includes admission to all 10 fantastic homes; the Home Tour Guide program book; a free slice of cheese pizza at SliCE; and admission to the private after-party at Brigantessa, the latest addition to the East Passyunk Avenue restaurant scene, where food and drink specials, raffles, and good company await you post-tour.

The Home Tour is also featured in the citywide 2014 DesignPhiladelphia Festival!
