As the August sun slowly sets behind the “Queen of the Missions”, experience the Franciscans hospitality as they welcome all to enjoy the official opening of Old Spanish Days Fiesta at this beautiful setting as they have since 1927. La Fiesta Pequeña, “Little Fiesta”, is a colorful, historical program which includes traditional songs and dance from Californios, Flamenco, Spanish classical and Mexican folklorico, an appearance from Saint Barbara, and a special performance from the 2016 Spirit. This event is free to the public.
Blankets, chairs or any other items left to reserve seating at Fiesta Pequena will not be allowed until 9 AM on Wednesday, the morning before the show. Any items before this time will be removed and confiscated by the City Parks Department. Thank you for your compliance.
