Las Posadas

Mon Dec 16, 2019
6:30pm to 9:00pm
All ages
Free

A reenactment of Mary and Joseph's search for a "room at the inn" is presented by the Olvera Street merchants, their families, and friends. Visitors are encouraged to join the nightly candlelight processions and Christmas carol singing in Spanish and English.

Free sweet bread and champurrado are given to all in attendance.

 A piñata is filled with candies every night for the children to break and enjoy. The celebration begins at the Avila Adobe. The procession begins nightly at  7:15pm.

A free theatrical performance of the classic Mexican comedy La Pastorela is given following each evening procession.

If you're thinking of making an evening of it, an early dinner is the way to go, since most restaurants on Olvera Street close at 7pm. On the up side, this is a great place to buy stocking stuffers!
