‘Carnival de Coronado’ home tour, street fair

The 28th Annual Coronado Home and Garden Tour is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 1, and includes a street fair and car show.

Located in midtown Phoenix, the Coronado neighborhood (often called Greater Coronado) covers approximately 1.5 square miles and includes about 5,000 households. Three historic districts—Brentwood, Coronado, and Country Club Park—make up much of the neighborhood.

The western side of the neighborhood was constructed largely between 1920 and 1930 and reflects the California Bungalow and Spanish Colonial revival building styles; the northern side is predominantly the ranch styles common of the 1940s.

This year’s tour will highlight Edgemere and 13th streets, both an easy .4-mile walk from one end to the other. From Monte Vista to Virginia, the Edgemere Street Fair will showcase many artisans from the Coronado neighborhood itself.

Food trucks will form the outer edges of the Oak Street Family Square entertainment venue and provide plenty of room to enjoy your treats while listening to live musical entertainment. The Coronado Classic car show on Oak Street right next to the square will provide a ride back in time.

The families of Coronado will parade down Oak Street beginning at 8:30 a.m. The Kids Parade features colorful bikes, wagons, strollers and babies, kids and adults alike.

Home Tour tickets are $15. Children’s tickets are $5 for ages 4-12 and free for age 3 and younger. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket booth at Oak and 12th streets or at most homes on the tour. Cash sales will be at the ticket booth only.
