What Event
When November 30, 2013
Time: 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM
Where Mission San Luis, Tallahassee, Florida


Old and New World influences resulted in a unique colonial cuisine at Mission San Luis. See this history come to life when re-enactors smoke meat and fish on the barbacoa and demonstrate the use of native and European plants from the Mission’s gardens and fields. Most important, learn about some of the things that families living at Mission San Luis were grateful for!

Children’s activities will include hands-on food preparation tasks throughout the day and fingerprint tree painting from Noon to 2 p.m. There will also be archery for children and adults.

Food truck meals will be available for purchase. Bring in non-perishable food or monetary donations for Second Harvest and receive a coupon for 10% off purchases from El Mercado: The Shop at San Luis. Please help us support America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend and help fight against hunger and feed hope in our community. The Tallahassee Democrat is the sponsor of this year’s event.
