One event on May 19, 2019 at 11:00am

Without working women out in front and behind the scenes, our adobe would have fallen apart ages ago! From the first indigenous woman to light the fire in the cocina to the architectural historian who began picking up the pieces of her home after the Loma Prieta earthquake, to the many women currently involved in the project, we would like to thank and honor them all this weekend. Please join our celebration of the role of women in our state-park-to-be and enjoy food, flowers, and fun with the special people of all genders in your life.
Guided tours will be offered at 11:15am, 12:00pm and 1:00pm, with a presentation on the Women of the Castro Adobe at 2:00pm. We’ll be making fresh tortillas in the cocina, plus there will be a fun craft activity for the kids, so bring the whole family! 
The Castro Adobe is currently an active construction site as the adobe building is being repaired and is open only during scheduled events. Event is free; limited parking (carpooling encouraged). Events made possible by Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks and California State Parks.
