EXPERIENCE LIFE ON THE 1860s FRONTIER!

Join us for the seventh annual Vallecito Days, celebrating life on the 1860s frontier and the role of the Southern Overland trails in “Mapping the West.” Visit with a 19th century surveyor, and the pioneer men and women dressed up in period attire. Watch trail riders on horse and mule, as they camp and host activities appropriate for that period in our history.
