Those with historically correct living history set ups, acts, presentations, characters, entertainments or activities are invited to join in. Please check with the Los Encinos Docent Association first. Please note there is no staking in the ground.
Furthermore, organizations that promote historical education and activities (especially 19th Century history) and historical preservation are invited to set up informational tables. Please check with the Docents before hand though.
This event is free and children are welcome. Donations are appreciated.
Period lawn games are encouraged as long as they don't involve projectiles that might break a window (no baseball, sorry).
Whether you are a serious Victorian era re-enactor, a history buff, an area resident interested in learning more about Encino history, or just someone looking for a relaxing picnic in the park, Victorian Day in the Park is the perfect way to spend a spring afternoon.
Dogs on leashes are allowed. Beer and wine are permitted. NO firearms (real or replica) please.
Victorian Day in the Park is hosted by the Los Encinos Docent Association.
