2010 Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour

Here are the homes that will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for the Mid-Century Modern Home Tour on Saturday, June 26, 2010. Check-in for all tour participants will be from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Sacramento Executive Airport.

Tickets are $20 in advance and are available online via the Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour site (see PayPal link in the upper left margin) and at the following Sacramento locations: Parkside Pharmacy, Capital Nursery, Blomberg Windows and HOT ITALIAN.

Any tickets remaining after advance sales may be purchased for $25 (CASH ONLY) at the check-in desk. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Short Center South, a day program serving adults with developmental disabilities. The Short Center South gallery will also be open during the tour.

At registration, participants will receive guidebooks with information about the homes and points of interest. They will then set their own pace on self-guided tours over three and a half miles of South Land Park and adjacent neighborhoods. On-street parking is available and biking is encouraged. Guest will be invited inside the 11 residences and enjoy driving past and learning about 22 points of interest.  Homeowners and docents will be at the homes to greet visitors and answer questions.

Hope to see you there!

Two of my friends came up from Pleasant Hill for the tour yesterday.
The three of us were blown away by the amazing homes, owners, neighborhoods and fellow "tour-ists". It was a very thought-provoking day! Thank you so much for your well-thought out itinerary and accompanying exhibits. We are already looking forward to the 2nd Annual MCM Home Tour!!!

Many thanks, Beth! I'm glad to hear you had a good experience. We could have sold 500 more tickets too! We tried very hard to make sure the history of the homes and buildings was told. Thank you for taking the time to write and tell me you enjoyed it!
