October 8, 2013 marks Escondido’s 125th anniversary as an incorporated city.  A free community event commemorating the city’s quasquicentennial will be held on Sunday, October 6, 2013 from 1 – 4 p.m. in Grape Day Park near the Escondido History Center. The event will include family-friendly games and activities, historic photo displays, special presentations and more. We are proud of our history, and proud of what we are today – a great city with small town charm. I look forward to sharing this festive occasion with our community.

Event partners include the City of Escondido, Escondido History Center, Escondido Chamber of Commerce, Escondido Downtown Business Association, Visit Escondido and the California Center for the Arts.
