Pasados del Presidio 2011
Commemorating the Presidio’s Past Through Music, Dance & Lore
June 23, 24, and 27, 2011
The Presidio we know today has its roots in events that took place more than 230 years ago. In 1776, a group of soldiers and pioneering families completed their long trip from Mexico to the bay in Alta California. Here they built El Presidio, a fortified settlement. From this modest beginning, the City of San Francisco was born.
Each year the park hosts a series of public programs commemorating “San Francisco’s birthday” and the founding of the Presidio. Pasados del Presidio events are free and open to the public.
