Spring Home Tour
The Faubourg Marigny Improvement Association Spring Home Tour and Washington Square Park Spring Festival is Sunday, May 18, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.; home tours begin at Noon. An Art Market, live music, children's activities and wine and food for sale will be featured all day in Washington Square Park.
Plans for this year’s Faubourg Marigny Home Tour will feature properties that were once blighted and are now lovingly restored and returned to use, largely due to FMIA efforts. Some are not quite complete but are well along in restoration.
Self-guided home tours will begin at NOON with the last tickets sold at 3 p.m. to enable participants to complete the tour by 4 p.m. Tickets are $20.00 and are sold only the day of the tour at the park. Volunteers who are willing to house-sit for one of two, two hour shifts will receive a free tour ticket. Volunteer@faubourgmarigny.org.
The Washington Square Park Festival is free and open to the public. All proceeds benefit the Faubourg Marigny Improvement Association, a 501c3 non-profit neighborhood association., so that we may complete our restoration of the park.
FMIA undertakes the upkeep of the park with volunteers who take out the trash, supervise the Sheriff’s Community Response team to rake and bag leaves, remove graffiti and repair the playground equipment. FMIA has replaced the trash containers and is in the process of replacing the benches as well.
