Mission Days

Mission Days

 

Mission Days will be held on Saturday April 11, 2015 from 11 am to 3 pm. Come enjoy a step backward in time to the real Mission Days. There will be re-enactors in costume portraying soldiers, artisans and vaqueros on horseback. Demonstrations will include adobe brick making, acorn grinding, tortilla making, weaving, the making of beaded bracelets and necklaces, face painting, rope making,bell ringing, and more. In the historic church, the NewBaroque Orchestra will play original music composed at Mission San Antonio by Fray Juan Bautista Sanchoin in the early 1800's.

We are also thrilled to once again welcome Michael Muir and Access Adventure to join in our festivities. Michael, grandson of the famed naturalist, John Muir, leads a wonderful group (in Access Adventure) of individuals who make the only wheel-chair accessible horse drawn carriages in the nation. Come see the workmanship, enjoy a ride...meet the staff and engage in the vision.



Parking/Admission fee is $10. Mission era food will be offered for $10/plate with water and soft drinks also available. Mission Days is a family event: no alcoholic beverages please.
