The F.Q. Story Preservation Association hosts its 33rd Annual F.Q. Story Holiday Home Tour and Street Fair, Dec. 2-3. This year’s tour features charming historic homes on Willetta Street, west of 7th Avenue.
The F.Q. Story Historic District consists of 602 homes dating from the 1920s and feature a mixture of architectural styles, including Spanish Colonial and Tudor Revival, English Cottage, Craftsman Bungalows, Spanish Colonial and Neoclassical. Tickets are required to tour the home interiors, but are not required to stroll the neighborhood and enjoy the street festival.
The tour begins on Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. with holiday-inspired streets lined with luminarias and holiday lights. On Sunday in addition to touring homes, enjoy holiday shopping while visiting dozens of craft vendors and food booths at the F.Q. Story Street Fair. Sunday’s hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Tickets for the actual home tour are $20 each, or $19 with a non-perishable food item donation. The ticket booth will be located at 9th Avenue and Willetta Street (two blocks south of McDowell Road). Discounted advance tickets also are available online at www.fqstory.org. The Saturday night luminaria display and Sunday’s Holiday Street Fair are open to anyone at no charge.
