About:

The Presidio Trust together with the National Park Service, invites the public to a two-day commemoration of the Presidio’s founding as a Spanish Army post, Pasados del Presidio, June 29-30.

The free event honors the heritage of early Californian cultures—Native American, Spanish and Mexican—and the founding of El Presidio de San Francisco in 1776.

Prior to the arrival of Spanish colonists, indigenous tribes of Ohlone people called the Presidio home, with archeological evidence for native villages dating back to 740 A.D.

In 1776 the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition from Sonora and Sinaloa (in modern Mexico) arrived with 191 colonists under the Spanish crown, many of whom were children, and established El Presidio de San Francisco and Mission Dolores. In 1835, the descendants of these and other colonists established the Mexican pueblo of Yerba Buena, which gave rise to a new American city called San Francisco.

Afternoon Fun for Kids on Friday, June 29 (noon to 3 pm), commemorates pre-American Presidio through hands-on learning through crafts, activities, exhibits and live performances. The afternoon kicks off with Ohlone basket weaver, Linda Yamane’s welcome song and continues with performances by Ballet Folklórico Mexicano​ and Zazpiak Bat Basque Dancers. Activities include grinding corn with a metate, yarn-spinning, examining Ohlone artifacts, coyote mask-making, spending time with farm animals, observing the live archaeology excavation of El Presidio and more.

At 7:00 pm at the Officers’ Club, the lights will dim for evening of fun for the grownups with the Pasados del Presidio Dance Party, a lively celebration of Mexican-American musical heritage with the award winning Dr. Loco’s Rockin’ Jalapen᷉o Band. Yismari Ramos Tellez and CaliDance will teach traditional dance moves, with cocktails available for purchase from Arguello Restaurant (cash bar).

All are invited to attend these free events to learn more about the rich cultural origins of the Presidio and early California.
