Visit the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park for their annual Anza Days celebration.Saturday, October 15 - Anza Days Celebration

8am. - 12pm. This year’s Anza Days celebration has been re-envisioned to reflect more historical accuracy and provide for the educational engagement of youngsters in this most significant event in Tubac’s history, when Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza made the 1775 overland expedition from Tubac to the Pacific. It begins in the cool of the morning at the Tubac Presidio at 9 am with period costumed riders executing cavalry drills. On the command of, “Vayan subiendo”, the Anza riders will assemble along with a host of imaginary settlers and livestock, and proceed to the steps of St. Ann's Church (the site of Tubac’s original church, Santa Gertrudis). There they will receive a blessing for the journey and head north with the first day objective of La Canoa. Subsequently, from 10 am to noon at the Presidio we will unveil our children’s Anza Discovery Program with costumes, activities, props, ponies and superb photo ops. This is a totally FREE EVENT and a wonderful opportunity to engage your children and grandchildren in Tubac’s colorful history. For more information call the Presidio, 520-398-2252.
