Living History Day at the Presidio Museum: The Columbian Exchange

April 11 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

| $1 – $6

Event Navigation

When Europeans arrived in the Americas, two cultures that had never interacted before were introduced to crops, foods, animals, diseases, and ways of life neither had ever experienced. We will explore the influence the Spanish and indigenous people had on each other.

In addition to these themed activities, other opportunities for visitors include:

** Tastings of hand-made tortillas and fresh-made bread
** Interactive demonstrations of children’s games and weaving
** Soldier drills with muskets
** Pumping the bellows of the blacksmith’s forge
** Wayfaring demonstrations
** Roping “cattle”

Included in admission.
