The Proud Neighbors of Collingswood Porch Brunch and House Tour showcases the charm of our homes and tranquil gardens. Brunch offers culinary delights on vintage porches in May on the sunday after Mother’s Day. The event is a tribute to our historic architecture and neighborhood restoration during National Historic Preservation Month. The Porch Brunch and House Tour will be held on Sunday, May 17, 2020. Consider showing your house or garden. Planning requires that participating homes and gardens must be secured well in advance so please reach out to us if you are (or someone you know might be) interested! Homes on the tour reflect a variety of housing styles, architecture, and neighborhood locations. Some homes feature historic architectural characteristics, while others have a decorator’s flair or a cozy, colorful ambiance. If you have a front porch, consider hosting brunch. We provide all the food, supplies, and staff. Proud Neighbors volunteers will staff your home or garden and many of our members have shown their homes on the tour. Even if you are just a little curious, we can put you in touch with others that have participated so that they can describe the experience. Info@ProudNeighborsOfCollingswood.org
