In 1775-76, an expedition of soldiers led by Juan Bautista de Anza set off from Sonora, Mexico to establish a garrison in the San Francisco Bay area and lay claim to the lands for Spain.
Please join us as we commemorate the 1,200 mile Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition with a FREE Heritage Festival for kids and families celebrating the cultures of Early Californians along this historic journey northward.
There will be colorful horseback re-enactments of the historic expedition, plus kids’ activities, music, dance, and an 18th century fashion show of women’s and men’s apparel which would have been worn along the journey…
