And grab lunch, a snack, and a beverage from one of our local food vendors.

Interested in architecture? Kirkwood has a diverse collection of building styles from classic Victorian cottages to craftsman bungalows to modern lofts and everything in between! Some of our best homes will be showcased on the Tour of Homes.

Admission to the festival is free. It is held in Bessie Branham Park and the surrounding areas. Tickets for the Tour can be purchased in the park at the festival or in advance at several local businesses. All proceeds go to benefit the Kirkwood Neighbors Organization, a local 501c3 non-profit group dedicated to community improvement.
