Rancho Day Fiesta
On Saturday, September 21 from 12 - 4 p.m., the San Mateo County Historical Association’s docents at the Sanchez Adobe present their annual Rancho Day Fiesta, a family activity day. The Adobe is located at 1000 Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica. Take a trip back to the 1840s when Don Francisco Sanchez raised cattle for the hide-and-tallow trade at his Rancho San Pedro.
A living history event, visitors will be invited to make adobe bricks, stamp leather, dip candles, make corn husk dolls, churn butter, and participate in other rancho-era activities, including learning how to dance as the early Californios did. Admission is free and there will be a charge for crafts and food.
