We’re counting down the hours now for the biggest event of our year, and perhaps the biggest Old North St. Louis House & Community Tour ever! We invite you to be here to enjoy the big day with us as we celebrate the vitality, warmth, beauty, character and soul of a neighborhood in the midst of dramatic revitalization. As a community that many had given up on not that long ago, the comeback of Old North should serve as an inspiration for anyone who believes in the power of community-driven neighborhood development.
With our advance ticket price of just $12 expiring at midnight, now is the time to get your tickets. Click HERE or on the image below to purchase as many tickets as you can via our secure PayPayl account, then we’ll have the tickets waiting for you tomorrow at our registration table.
Our previous posts have highlighted some of what will be on this year’s tour - click HERE to take a look at the post from Tuesday…
…and click HERE to see the post from Saturday.
Now for a few more previews…
Incredible, back-from-the-brink of demolition transformations...
A really cool art exhibit in the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group (ONSLRG) Gallery, featuring works of people who live or work in Old North (or have close ties to the community)
Did we mention the free ice cream? Thanks to Crown Candy Kitchen, all ticketed tour-goers will get a free scoop of ice cream at the ONSLRG Gallery!
And, did we mention the free cup of coffee at La Mancha Coffeehouse (for ticketed tour-goers)?
Environmentally-responsible shuttle service…
*(and, yes, in case you’re wondering, they do have a cover that can be put up to protect the riders from the blazing sun and or other elements.)
Want to attend for FREE?
All volunteers at the tour get to go on the tour for FREE and attend the after-tour appreciation party! We still have room for more, so let us know now if you’d like to take us up on this incredible offer. Click HERE for the shift information and to sign up.
Thank you again to all of our sponsors who make this great event possible, especially PNC.
And, as noted in earlier posts, we’re sharing the day with the hugely successful Spring Fling in the City vintage street market, with all sorts of presents for the Moms in your life, just in time for Mothers’ Day! Come on out to enjoy the activity in the street and to celebrate all things good about urban, historic neighborhoods.
So, this is your last call to get advance tickets. Click HERE. However, you’ll still be able to get tickets on Saturday at the day-of price of $15 (still one of the best prices in town for a neighborhood house tour).
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 9, right here in the heart of Old North!
