June 24th, 2023, 10:30 am Anza Celebration at Presidio of San Francisco
➢ 10:30 am Formal Welcome & Flower Ceremony, Pershing Square by Officers Club.
➢ Open to the Public: Period Clothing is welcome (Soldado, Vaquero, pioneer, military).
Los Californianos is pleased to be able to return to the Presidio in-person for our annual Anza Celebration and San Francisco’s Birthday on Saturday, June 24th, 2023.
Descendants of the founding families of the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition (1775-76) will celebrate the 247th anniversary of the arrival of Spanish soldados de cuera (“leather-jacket soldiers”), men, women, and children, who made the long journey overland to San Francisco and founded El Presidio de San Francisco and Mission San Francisco de Asis (Mission Dolores).
It will be a modified version of our annual Anza Celebration due to the Presidio’s cuts in programming; this year there will be no horses. We will be having our traditional flower ceremony followed by two lunch options (1) picnicking from food trucks on lawns and/or (2) a member’s only luncheon ($60/person, size limited) in the Officer’s Club Anza Room with Speaker TBA.
DATE ALERT for Luncheon after 10:30 am Anza Celebration on June 24!! Enjoy picnicking at Pershing Square from Food Trucks or stay-tuned for in-door luncheon options ($60 person).
