San Diego Old House Fair

It's That Time Again

Last year SOHO was asked to take over the Annual Old House Fair. We were pleased to be selected as the successor to this great event and it went so well, that this year we are more then ready and raring to go!

Vendors are already sending in their applications, which at this early date is a definite sign that the show will be bigger then ever. Look for all the best local and regional restoration and period-specific vendors, antiques, and preservation-minded businesses.

The historic home tour will be great; we will showcase various architectural styles and encompass several neighborhoods. We will also be showing a restoration in progress where you will be able to see in future years the work done.

Workshops will be held at various locations and are still being organized at this time. The attendance will be limited so when they are announced you will want to reserve right away.

Last year we changed the format slightly and instead of a Mills Act lecture and Ask the Experts hour we combined both and had a booth all day long to answer these questions. This worked out very well and we were able to serve many more people this way. The Mills Act/Ask The Experts will be located next to the SOHO registration booth.

Right now we are recruiting volunteers. This is the time to volunteer so that we may organize the docent schedule. If you would like to be a volunteer, please call (619) 297-7511 or email us NOW at

In conjunction with the Old House Fair, we are publishing the second edition of the SOHO Resource Directory. SOHO receives dozens of calls monthly for referrals of services and the Resource Directory has been a wonderful tool. It provides a year round source for the old house community.

A request of our members, if you have had a great experience with a craftsperson, service, etc., and feel others would benefit by knowing of them please forward that information to us and we will forward the Resource Directory information to them. We have received several unsolicited letters recently about people who should not be allowed to work on anyone's old home and that is equally beneficial to know. So please call, email or fax us.

Mark your calendars now, San Diego's Old House Fair is the place to be on June 21st.
