When is the 2016 Willo Home Tour?
Sunday, February 14th, 2016, from 10 am – 4 pm
Visitors can park at the parking garage located at 1st Avenue and Holly. You are also welcome to park in any available location within the neighborhood. Trolleys will be continually running throughout the day and you are welcome to hop on and off at your convenience. Or if you live in the area, you can simply walk or bike the tour.
Besides touring the homes there is an incredible Street Fair with over 100 vendors providing food, arts & crafts, area services and lot more. Most of the food will be north and south of Monte Vista and 3rd Ave while the other vendors will be lined up and down the streets on Monte Vista and Holly Street between 3rd and 5th avenues.
Music is always a fun part of the Willo Historic Home Tour. You’ll find bands playing all afternoon near the park at 3rd Ave and Monte Vista. They have quite a line up this year with a great variety of music.

What Is the Willo Home Tour?
Once a year, the Willo Historic District invites residents and Valley visitors to have an inside look at some of the unique homes that make up the neighborhood. Willo is Phoenix’s largest historic district consisting of over 900 homes. Willo is bordered north to south by Thomas and McDowell, and east to west by 1st Avenue and 7th Avenue.
The Willo Historic Home Tour and Street Fair has something for everyone. Each year approximately a dozen architecturally significant homes and the historic firehouse are open to the public for an inside look. The homes range in style from Tudor to Spanish Revival, Bungalow and Ranch and were built from the 1920’s through the 1940’s. If laid back relaxation is more your style then you can enjoy the classic car show on Holly at Third Ave. and the beer/wine garden.
Ticket sales and the street fair are centered around Walton Park in the heart of Willo, where Holly and Monte Vista intersect at Third Avenue.
The Willo Home Tour is the sole fundraiser for the neighborhood and provides the funding for neighborhood movie nights, holiday luminarias, Block Watch, Willo Yard Sale advertising, Kids Club activities and other neighborhood events. The Tour is put on by volunteers who live in the neighborhood.
Once a year, the residents of the Willo Historic District put out the “welcome mat” and open their homes to Valley visitors. Stroll Willo’s tree lined streets from house to house, or jump a trolley that will carry visitors throughout the neighborhood.
Don’t miss this fun-filled opportunity to visit architecturally significant, finely decorated homes while supporting the beautiful neighborhood of Willo.
