Biannual Bungalow Tour

The Kenwick Neighborhood Association holds a neighborhood home and garden tour every other year. The tour is a perfect illustration of this near-downtown neighborhood that blends traditional and modernized homes and gardens, and the diverse blend of Lexingtonians who call it home.

Date: Sunday, June 14th, 2015, 1 to 5 p.m.
Location: Homes will be in the Kenwick neighborhood
Tickets: Available for $7 on the day of the tour, $5 for advance purchase tickets (available here at the end of April)

The Kenwick Neighborhood Association presents the 2015 Kenwick Bungalow Tour on Sunday, June 14th, 1-5 p.m. Eight to ten homes and gardens will be stops on the tour. While every house may not be a bungalow, each one will show a different aspect of Kenwick’s unique personality. This event helps the Kenwick Neighborhood Association raise money for projects such as the Kenwick Victory Christian Church Community Garden and helps fund events at the Kenwick Community Center. Tickets will be sold for $7 on the day of the tour or for $5 for advance tickets starting in late April. Contact kenwickneighbors@gmail.com or call 859-221-8350 for more information.
