A Western Affair 2020

A Western Affair 2020 Postponed

Due to COVID-19 and the need to protect vulnerable communities, A Western Affair 2020 has been postponed.

Protecting the safety and well-being of California residents is our first priority. That’s why we work so hard to conserve our state’s precious open spaces in the first place: These lands play a crucial role in the vibrance and health of our communities.

We Can’t Wait to Celebrate with You in 2021!

Mission San Juan Capistrano, historic landmark and museum, is the Birthplace of Orange County. It was founded more than two hundred years ago as the 7th of 21 missions statewide and features a chapel still standing where Saint Serra once celebrated Mass. Today, it is a monument to California’s multi-cultural history, embracing its Native American, Spanish, Mexican and European heritage. Originally built as a self sufficient community by Spanish Padres and Native Americans, the Mission was a center for agriculture, industry, education and religion. Famous for the Annual Return of the Swallows, Mission San Juan Capistrano is the “Jewel of the California Missions” and welcomes over 300,000 visitors each year.

31891 Camino Capistrano – San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675

This historic gem can be found behind the El Adobe Restaurant. To walk the streets of the Los Rios District is to recapture the tranquility of the slower pace of life that existed before the turn of the century and before. You can find charming restaurants, a team room, shops, a coffee house, and a community park along the way. It was not long ago that the streets were still dirt. Willow trees grow among eucalyptus and palm. Cactus and wildflowers grow beneath sprays of bouganvia. You can hear the hum of insects that a writer in the 1800’s wrote about and feel the haunting presence of those who lived in that time.

Equipped with live bands and all the line dancing your heart desires, this is the perfect local hot spot to have fun, unwind, and boot scoot and boogie all night long.
