Midwinter Fair WNP Member History Walk WNP Event

Feb 16, 2019 11:00am-12:30pm (Saturday) at Golden Gate Park
Join John Martini on a special history walk exclusively for WNP members and explore the history and legacy of the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition in Golden Gate Park. One hundred twenty-five years ago the Music Concourse was the center of activity with an Electric Tower, the Firth Wheel (a knock-off of the first Ferris Wheel), industrial and art pavilions, statues, and fountains. John will talk about fair legacies in the origins of the Japanese Tea Garden and de Young Museum, and uncover surprising pieces of the fair still to be found in the Music Concourse.

Free to WNP members, but limited to 30 people. Reserve your spot by using the contact button at right, or phone (415-661-1000), and we will respond with the starting location.
