Saturday, April 22 from 11am to 3pm
Round up your family and drop in to our celebration of California’s Rancho Era, when cattle was king, bandits roamed the countryside, and the Castro Family built their one-of-a-kind home on a hill at the height of their power. Get to know the tools of the cattle trade; listen to cowboy songs and tales of infamous bandits; relax in the beauty of our garden and grounds with spring in full spring. We’ll skip rounding up the calves and go straight to the celebration with you as our guests.
Free admission (donations gratefully accepted). Limited parking (carpooling encouraged). This park is currently an active construction site as the adobe building is being repaired and is open only during scheduled events. Event made possible by Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks and California State Parks.
