If you haven't attended one of the annual Kitchen Tours hosted by the Neenah-Menasha Emergency Society, you are missing out on attending a fun event and supporting a great cause! This one-day event (Thursday, April 27th) allows the attendee to tour FIVE kitchens at their own pace. You have from 10am to 7pm to tour all of the locatoins! This year, most of the homes are located on Doty Island, but there is a bonus stop this year - an exhibit at the Bergstrom-Mahler Glass Museum features items once displayed in one of the homes.
The kitchen designs this year are a mix of renovated kitchens featuring styles from English Tudor Revvival, Modern Craftsman, Classic Colonial and a 1937 George Fred Keck "international sytle" home. Each kitchen offers demonstrations and tastings by local eateries such as The Howard, The Sweet Lair, Bedrock Coffee Roasters, FOME, XE54 Wine and Cocktail Lounge and Tight Barrel Distilling.
The five homes on the tour, all located on or near Doty Island in Neenah and Menasha, Wisconsin, are:
360 Park Street, Doty Island, Menasha
401 Beaulieu Road, Doty Island, Neenah
324 Park Drive, Doty Island, Neenah
