Presidio Pastimes by Candlelight - 1st Thursday Event
The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation (SBTHP) is pleased to present Presidio Pastimes by Candlelight on Thursday, February 1, 2018 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM at El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park as part of Downtown Santa Barbara’s 1st Thursday.
Enjoy a rare opportunity to visit the Presidio by candlelight and travel back in time to over two centuries ago. Discuss colonial California with the Presidio officers, experience a cooking demonstration in la cocina, enjoy stories by an open fire, and join in the music and dance of early California. Wine and hot chocolate will be served.
From SBTHP Executive Director, Dr. Anne Petersen: “We are pleased to offer this free event during a time when we can all find solace in a sense of community. We look forward to opening the doors of Santa Barbara’s founding place on this candlelit evening to come together with dance, song, cooking and conversation.”
SBTHP thanks Los Soldados del Real Presidio de Santa Bárbara, Luis Moreno and friends, Diana Repogle-Purinton and Baile de California, and the many volunteers who bring the Presidio to life for this special evening.
