ALERT: Historic Homeowner Fair 2017 IS POSTPONED

Due to Hurricane Harvey the Historic Homeowner Fair has been postponed .  As of now it is tentatively scheduled for September 30, 2017.

Historic Homeowner Fair

The 9th Annual Historic Homeowner Fair will be this Saturday, August 26, 2017, at the Pearl Stable.

The Historic Homeowner Fair (HHF) is a free, annual event hosted by the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation. It is designed to bring together owners of aging and historic homes with local professionals, services, products, and solutions and to educate homeowners about caring for and maintaining their properties. In addition to an Exhibitor Hall of local contractors and preservation organizations, the HHF provides educational sessions and hands-on demonstrations throughout the day which cover a wide array of topics including wood window repair, securing financing for a project, and even landscaping.

The fair runs from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm. The HHF is free and open to the public. You don’t have to live in a historic district to attend!
