Celebrate the season with the MWSS and your neighbors at our Annual Holiday Party!

As always, we will provide plenty of turkey, ham, and wine.

Please bring a side dish to share. Also, we ask that you donate a canned or non-perishable food item for the Northside Food Pantry. This is their greatest time of need.

We'll conduct minimal business during the festivities, and will collect 2018 membership dues, only $15 for the whole year! We accept cash, check, credit card and online payments. Membership dues also serve as admission to the party.

To RSVP, please email info@mexicanwarstreets.org or RSVP on Facebook. Hope to see you there!

48th Annual Mexican War Streets House & Garden Tour

The Mexican War Streets House & Garden Tour is the oldest and finest house tour in the city of Pittsburgh. During the 48th annual event, held from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 10th, visitors will be treated to a leisurely, self-guided tour of homes and gardens throughout our historic neighborhood on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

Homes on tour represent beautiful restorations and some that offer a glimpse behind the effort that goes into a work-in-progress. Every home is unique and expresses each homeowner’s personal taste and style. The House Tour will also showcase a midway of vendors and mobile eateries, including BRGR, Gilligan's Sorbet, and Billu's Indian Grill!

Online ticket sales have closed. Tickets are $20 per person on Tour Day at the ticket booth on Monterey Street at West North Avenue. If you have ordered tickets online, come to the ticket booth and check in; your tickets will be under the name of the person who placed the order online.

A note about parking: We will have lots reserved on lower Buena Vista St., at the corner of Sherman Ave. and Greeves, and the corner of Brighton Rd. and Jacksonia. Here is a map of the neighborhood to help you plan your visit. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

MWSS Progressive Brunch

MWSS Progressive Brunch

Please join us for our Progressive Brunch on Sunday, June 4! This year, we are going to do a brunch instead of dinner in honor of Susan Kosy, our dear neighbor and Progressive Dinner planner, who passed away recently. We will be meeting at noon for appetizers at a designated spot, then will divide up into small groups at 1pm and proceed to a home or garden for the main course. At 3pm, the groups will move to another house or garden for dessert.

We chose to hold a progressive brunch involving the gardens because of Susan's love of gardening.

Spaces are limited, so if you would like to host and/or attend, please fill out this form and send to our organizer, Sandy Kniess, before May 14. Cost is $20 per MWSS member, $25 per non-member. You can also pay here.

Hope to see you there!
