Hosted by the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA (LECPTA), the Lakewood Home Festival is a community-wide event that raises funds for Lakewood Elementary School, J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School. The funds directly benefit students through the purchase of school materials, computers and enrichment programs as well as the International Baccalaureate program. Attended by more than 4,000 patrons, the Lakewood Home Festival has raised more than $1 million for local schools since 1976.
In addition to touring the Lakewood homes, visitors can shop items from local artists at the Holiday Market located inside Lakewood Elementary, get a bite to eat at the Café, and attend the Home Tour Auction Party on Friday night. The theme of this year’s party is “Lakewoodville – Living In Paradise” and is at Lakewood Country Club.
