Celebrate the 237th anniversary of the founding of Los Angeles with Los Pobladores historic re-enactments, a civic ceremony, artisan demonstrations, live entertainment, and free birthday cake! Bike or walk to El Pueblo from the beautiful San Gabriel Mission following the historic nine-mile route of our first settlers. El Pueblo Historical Monument is also proud to present a classic collection of vintage automobiles, low riders, and first-rate motorcycles on display in and around the historic plaza.
Follow the historic route that was taken by Los Pobladores when they first set out in September 1781! Participants must follow all traffic laws and are encouraged to carry their own water and wear comfortable shoes, hats and sunscreen. The early morning moderate trek ends at the El Pueblo Monument, home to Olvera Street, where you can enjoy presentations, museums, restaurants and family entertainment.
Complimentary (limited) DASH shuttles will be available for walkers to return to the Mission between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.
