In the midst of spring cleaning and home renovations, it helps to draw inspiration from something outside of a Home Depot. Fortunately, there's the 27th Annual Coronado Home & Garden Tour plus Street Fair and Classic Car show.

Slated for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 2, the Coronado Home & Garden Tour will showcase the hard work of historic homeowners with original and renovated structures dating back to the early twentieth century. The tour, which costs $12.50 in advance and $15 at the event, will feature roughly a dozen homes and residential gardens along the neighborhood streets of Granada, Monte Vista, Hubbell, and Palm Lane.
In addition to the tour, the free street fair will offer pre-1970s cars, local vendors, and food trucks. Live musical performances are scheduled throughout the day including the Young Coronado Violinists, Tina Estes, Quarter Inch Crown, The Lovelost, The SunPunchers, and Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra.
Following the day's festivities, the Coronado District will hold a special after party from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. hosted by the Professional Musicians of Arizona at 1202 East Oak Street. Although this final event is free, donations will be accepted to benefit AFM Local 586.
