Mission Days will be held on Saturday April 5, 2014 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, vaqueros on horseback, and neophytes (Indians). Demonstrations will include adobe brick making, acorn grinding, tortilla making, weaving, bead making, face painting, rope making,bell ringing, and more. In the historic church, the NewBaroque Orchestra will play original music composed for Mission San Antonio.
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.
