Annual August Fête

Each year, we look forward to our Annual August Fête as a celebration of the architectural heritage we are working to preserve, and our incredible supporters who help make that work possible.

In 2021, join us as we celebrate our 16th Annual August Fête: Secret Lanes & Hidden Ponds.

The Fête will feature pre-recorded house tours of historic homes along Lily Street and secluded Gull Island Lane.  These video tours will be available for viewing beginning August 6th.

We will also host small group walking tours of the Lily Pond neighborhood, departing from the Land Bank’s North Liberty Street Lily Pond parking area at 10 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM Monday August 9th through Thursday August 12th.

On August 12, at 7 PM, tune in for a Zoom question-and-answer presentation with the homeowners, architects, builders, and other preservation experts.
