The next time you are looking for something fun to do with the family on the weekend, or maybe wandering back to your car after a trip to the nearby Saturday Farmer’s Market, or grabbing a cup of coffee at Handlebars, or maybe a sandwich at Three Pickles, stop by the Presidio to see what’s free!

Each weekend between 10:30am and 4:00pm we offer a free craft activity that is loads of fun for kids, and teaches them a little something about life at the Presidio in the late 1700s and early 1800s.   You’ll see our table set up in front of the Presidio Visitor Center, and one of our engaging interpretive staff at the ready. We hope to see you soon!
