Tubac’s First Annual Santa Gertrudis Day!

Tubac Presidio State Historic Park

March 17, 2018   10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Celebrate the Feast Day of Santa Gertrudis, for whom the Presidio’s chapel was named.  Santa Gertrudis was a Belgian nun whose name graced the church in Tubac from 1767 to 1917. Even the St. Ann’s structure is believed to have Belgian architectural influences!  Experience an architectural discussion tour of St. Ann’s, see an exhibition of local art about historic, religious and architectural subjects,  and watch Anza and his soldiers reenact the start of the famous ride to San Fransico! Visitors will also hear lectures about the ambulance wagon and see demonstrations on wagon wheel making.  The first lecture begins at 10:30 but events will run throughout the day until 4 pm.  Includes all day admission to tour the Presidio. $5 adult, $2 youth 7-13, children free. Tubac Presidio State Historic Park, 1 Burruel St., Tubac, AZ (520) 398–2252.
