May Procession with Holy Mass at the Cross at Grant Park

Join us as we make the short pilgrimage from the Mission gardens up to the Cross in Grant Park.  We depart at 7:30 a.m. from the Mission on the first Saturday in May to commorate the Feast of the Holy Cross.  Outdoor Mass is celebrated at the Cross with a spectacular view of Ventura and the coastline.  Following Mass refreshments are served compliments of the Guadalupana Society.


Ventura City Street Fair
July 4th

The annual Ventura City Street Fair is a must...come and join in the fun with thousands of your closest friends!  San Buenaventura Mission sponsors food and game booths in its lower parking lot on Main Street from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During the Street Fair, downtown Main Street is closed for six blocks so that a variety of arts and crafts, food and beverage booths can be set up for view.

Be sure to COME to the Mission parking lot for the best food and prices!  BBQ chicken with rice and beans, tomales with rice and beans, and hot dogs are favorites.  The Rosary-Altar Society serves a delicious variety of baked goods.  Soft drinks, water, beer, and wine are the best prices of all venues.

There are games to entertain the children. Free music entertainment is provided while you dine!

All proceeds help support Holy Cross School, a school with a Mission! 

We hope to see you on July 4th...America's Independence Day!


San Buenaventura Feast Day

Our patronal feast day is July 15.  When this feast day falls on a weekday (Monday through Friday) a special Mass is observed at 7:00 p.m. followed by a reception in the Mission Gardens.  When the feast day falls on a weekend the Sunday Mass schedule is observed with refreshments served after each Mass in the Missioin Gardens.  For the Sunday observance, parishioners are encouraged to bring a plate of their favorite home baked treats to share with the community following Mass.  To read more about St. Bonaventure see our "History" section on this website.  All are welcome to join the parish community of San Buenavnetura Mission as we celebrate this solemn day.
