This wildly popular festival celebrates literacy and the literary works of Mark Twain and other 19th-century authors. Literature comes to life through games and activities in the park, as well as through excerpts from famous works which will be presented by costumed San Diego actors at a variety of park venues throughout the day.

Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, with the support of the Boosters of Old Town and donations from Fiesta de Reyes, is proud to offer these free activities for adults and children of all ages. The park is located on San Diego Avenue and Twiggs Street in San Diego, and is conveniently located next to the Old Town Transit Center, with Coaster, trolley, and MTS bus service. Free parking is available at the CalTrans headquarters, just two blocks from the park at 4050 Taylor Street.
