Porch Brunch and House Tour
Sunday, May 21, 2017
The Proud Neighbors 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 & neighborhood restoration. It coincides with National Historic Preservation Month.
Combination brunch and tour ticket prices are $30 per person. Advanced reservations are required for brunch for either the 11am or 1pm . Please call 609-238-5407 for brunch reservations. The combination ticket provides delicious brunch plus access to all seven tour homes and four Certified Wildlife Habitat Gardens. Three Good Men, who sing in the barbershop genre, will harmonize at the tour home of Steven and Sharon Ritz, 624 Stokes Avenue.
If you weren’t able to make a reservation for brunch, but still want to tour the houses, the tickets for the tour only are $18 in advance and $20 the day of the tour.

Courtesy Request: Proud Neighbors appreciates your visit and consideration for the privacy of homeowners. Please do not wear heels inside tour homes as heels may cause damage of floors. Thank you.
Consider showing your house or garden next year! Participating homes and gardens must be secured well in advance. 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.
