San Francisco's Birthday Celebration | Pasados del Presidio
Descendants of the original founding families of the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition (1775-76) return to the Presidio to recognize the journey of their forefathers and the founding of El Presidio de San Francisco.
The program includes formal remarks, a procession by the Amigos de Anza horse mounted riders, and a roll call of the people who made the original 1200+ mile trek from Sonora/Mexico.
Meet at Pershing Square, across from the Presidio Officers’ Club.
In 1775-1776, 240 colonists – soldiers, men, women and children – traveled 1,800 miles from present-day Mexico and found the Presidio of San Francisco, bringing with them a new culture and a new era in California history. Descendants of the original founding families of the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition return to the Presidio every June to recognize the amazing journey.
