Mare Island’s Founders Day Main Event: Family Festival

Mare Island's Founders Day Main Event: Family Festival

Founders Day is a weekend celebration filled with events commemorating the day, Sept 16th 1854, when Admiral David Farragut officially opened Mare Island; three days of events taking place around the island.

Join us at the Admiral’s Mansion 1PM-4PM on Saturday Sept 16th for our Main Event! 1065 Walnut, Mare Island, CA 94592.‍

Bring the family, some chairs, and a picnic and enjoy awesome tunes on the lawn at the Admiral’s Mansion. Bounce house and facepainting for the kids, beer and wine for sale for the adults (please, no outside alcohol), history exhibits for all. A silent auction and a raffle will raise funds for the Foundation. We’ll start it all off with a couple rousing songs from a military band, and a presentation of the colors, before favorite local Benicia musicians “Vintage Spirits” takes the main stage. Come join your neighbors and fellow history-lovers for this super fun event!‍

$10 advance purchase, $15 at the door, members get $5 discount. All proceeds to benefit the Foundation.
