Event description

Description

La Purisima Mission State Historic Park is hosting Candlelight Tour 2019 on Saturday, Sept. 21. This guided walking tour of the mission moves back in time to the 1820s. Guests walk from scene to scene witnessing an evening in the life of the Chumash. This year’s storyline celebrates the return of the caballeros from the fall roundup, happy to see family and friends and anxious to share their experiences and skills with everyone. At the end of their tour, guests will enjoy a full dinner and dessert before returning to life in 2019.

As a guest, there are many things to note and new things to consider. The guided walking tour takes about 90 mins. to see the scenes and to enjoy the dinner. The tour involves walking on uneven surfaces. As the sun sets, the temperature falls. The earlier tours enjoy the scenes & dinner by full or partial daylight. For the later tours, pathways and scenes are experienced by the historic ambience of candlelight. The number of guests per tour is limited to enhance the listening and viewing pleasure of all. This tour takes place in the 1820s long before clicking, buzzing, flashing devices were a way of life. Therefore such devices should not be in use while on this 1820s tour.

In order to accommodate more people at this very popular event, tours have been added giving guests the opportunity to select the time and conditions of their preference. The route of each tour is the same, differing only in departure time. See “tickets” for special notes of each tour. The ticket/tour purchased designates the departure time of that tour.

Tickets are $45 per person and limited to 6 years and older. Proceed to “tickets” to purchase your preferred tour time. Your arrival time for the event should be 15 mins prior to your appointed tour time. Candlelight Tour 2019 will happen rain or moonshine, hot or cold.
