Hands-On History Days: Happy Birthday San Jose!
November 18 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
THIS EVENT WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 14
Come celebrate our City’s 240th Birthday at the Peralta Adobe-Fallon House Historic Site, with an open house at the Peralta Adobe, San Jose’s oldest address. Meet descendants of the founders of the Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe and of Luís Maria Peralta.
Try your hand at bull roping, make a leather bracelet with saddle maker & blacksmith John Grafton, build your own corn husk doll, and more!
Listen to the inspiring guitar music of Luís Moreno, take in performances from the Los Lupeños de San José dancers, and Cisco Jim – the Singing Cowboy. Then pop across the street for a family friendly tour of the historic Fallon House that includes birthday games in the parlor! And top it all off with a slice of birthday cake!
Special thanks to our event sponsor Council member Donald Rocha
