May Procession with Holy Mass at the Serra Cross at Serra Park-Grant Park
Join us as we make the short pilgrimage from the Mission garden 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 (formerly observed on May 3). Outdoor Mass is celebrated at the Cross with a spectacular view of San Buenaventura and the coastline.
Following Mass refreshments are served compliments of the Guadalupana Society.
San Buenaventura Downtown Street Fair
The annual Downtown Ventura 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 4 p.m.
During the Street Fair, Downtown Main Street is closed for several blocks to host a variety of arts and crafts, food and beverage booths.
Be sure to COME to the Mission parking lot on Main Street for the best food and prices! BBQ and tomales served 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.
Music and dancing is the highlight in addition to game booths for children.
All proceeds help support Holy Cross School, a school with a Mission!
We hope to see you on July 4th...America's Independence Day!
