The festival offers visitors of all ages a chance to spend an afternoon in the farm’s Ohlone Village, normally closed to the public. Children will get the chance to step into the daily lives of the original Bay Area inhabitants, the Ohlone, who lived in the region for thousands of years. The replica underground sweat house and Tule shade and sleeping structures will be open, and trained docents will provide short talks on how the Ohlone lived 100 years ago.
