Celebrating The Wild West In San Diego
Stagecoach Days invites visitors to enjoy afternoons in Old Town filled with activities that reflect life in early San Diego and celebrate the West on the move.
Old Town San Diego State Historic Park is celebrating travel and transportation in the era of real horsepower during “Stagecoach Days,” kicking off on July 8. Join in on the old-fashioned fun from noon to 4:00 PM on eight Saturdays in July and August.
Sponsored by Fiesta de Reyes and Boosters of Old Town, this free event features a different theme each Saturday such as Days of the Vaqueros, Women of the West, Soldiers and Citizens, TwainFest and Taste of the Past.
Attendees will enjoy afternoons filled with activities that reflect life in early San Diego and celebrate the West on the move.

All activities are geared toward children and adults of all ages.
