BungalowFest 2017

The Historic Kenwood Association in conjunction with The Artists Enclave of Historic Kenwood are proud to bring you ‘A Celebration of Art and Architecture’ Home Tour. November 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.

Already proven to be one of Southwest Florida’s Premier Architectural Home Tours and now in its Nineteenth year of continued success, this fun filled, educational and community based yearly event is guaranteed to be the best yet.

Designated an Artist Enclave by the City of Saint Petersburg and recently having the honor of being awarded 1st place in the Neighborhood’s USA (NUSA) Neighborhood of the Year competition for Physical Revitalization, this year we have more to celebrate than ever before.

In addition to beautifully restored craftsman homes, artists dwellings will be featured that will be an inspiration to any budding artist or DIY-er who appreciates innovative and creative use of space, There’s going to be a lot going on!

It is fun to walk our beautiful tree-lined neighborhood full of historic bungalows but for those who do not wish to walk the approximately 1.4 mile area, city trolleys will be on hand to provide free transport. The trolleys will be available from Seminole Park and throughout the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Community providing drop-off and pick-up points. The Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association is dedicated to making this event a memorable and enjoyable day out.

Bring your friends and family and mark your calendar to visit our urban village and community.
This year’s BungalowFest is guaranteed to be another huge success!

BungalowFest 2017:  Your Home On Tour

     The 2017 BungalowFest committee is looking to select about 10 homes that reflect the diverse range of architectural styles in our neighborhood. The goal is to have visitors come away from the event saying, “Wow! I didn’t know there was such an interesting variety of lovely homes in Kenwood!” So we're seeking well maintained homes with attractive gardens, decor both traditional and contemporary, adorned with fine to folk art and furnished with pride. Size doesn’t matter – we’d like to showcase homes of all sizes.
     This year's home selection committee co-chairs, Colin & Felicity Jenkins, were on last year's tour. They've told us, "It was a wonderful experience meeting all the people who came to view the house and who were so enthusiastic and complimentary  – we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Everything went so smoothly thanks to all the support we received from committee members and volunteers."
     As many BungalowFest homeowners have discovered – often to their surprise – the whole experience was great fun, an enjoyable way to meet many new friends, and a major motivator for getting that pesky "to do" list finally done.
     If you think your home may be a candidate, or if you know of another home that you’d like to nominate, please email Colin & Felicity by clicking bf2017homes@gmail.com
