3/12/20 UPDATE: Because of health concerns posed by the coronavirus, the Armory Park Neighborhood Home and Garden Tour will not take place March 22 as originally scheduled. We hope to reschedule at a later date.
Here’s the original post: An old favorite is making its return: the Armory Park Home & Garden Tour is scheduled from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 22.
The rain-or-shine event will show off the homes and garden spaces of about 10 residents of Armory Park. Someone will be on hand at each location to offer its history and to answer questions. The tour of this historic Tucson neighborhood will start at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 545 S. Fifth Ave. (at 16th Street).
Tickets are $20.00 per person and one hundred percent of proceeds will go to benefit the Neighbors Feeding Neighbors, which delivers some 10,000 meals a year to Downtown residents in need. The feeding program, housed at St. Andrew’s Church, began 30 years ago, according to The Rev. Jefferson Bailey, its founder, and a deacon at St. Andrew’s. In addition to the Homes and gardens there will be an art show and at 4PM there will be special Mass at the Church with choir and organ and in the style of the 1940’s.
