Fiesta Patrias in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park

| September 4, 2019 | 0 Comments

It’s time again to head to Old Town San Diego State Historic Park to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. This year the annual festivities commence at 11 am with the ringing of the bell at the historic Casa de Estudillo on Saturday, September 14, 2019.

This free event commemorates an important day in early San Diego history when Mexico declared independence from Spain on September 16, 1821, and Alta California became part of that new nation.

The exciting and colorful Fiestas Patrias festivities will be showcasing a variety of entertainment, including historic and traditional music and dance groups, crafts, games, and informational demonstrations that represent the activities enjoyed by the early settlers of San Diego in the 1800s.

Park guests can relax and picnic in the grassy area in front of the stage that will be filled with musical entertainment and will also include a piñata breaking for children to participate in during the event.

Free parking is available at the CalTrans headquarters, just two blocks from the park at 2994 Sunset Street.

For more information, please go to or call 619-220-5422.

Old Town San Diego Historic Park will be alive with special activities and entertainment on Saturday, September 14.
