The Olompali People and California State Parks will team up again this year to host the 29th annual Olompali State Historic Park Heritage Day at the park on Sunday, May 18. 

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, parking is $8. 

Heritage Day features activities tied to the park's unique cultural history and idyllic location on the flanks of Mount Burdell. Inhabited continuously for 8,000 years, Olompali has been a Coast Miwok Indian village, a Victorian estate and a hippie commune. 

Heritage Day visitors can take guided walks to lean about Olompali’s birds, plants, and archaeology. They also can hear experts discuss the park's historic structures, including the Camilo Ynitia Adobe, the Burdell Mansion and the Burdell Victorian Garden.

Returning this year will be Senior State Parks Archaeologist Breck Parkman, who will discuss the Olompali's rich archaeological history. Children of all ages can learn about local wildlife from WildCare, and members of the Chosen Family will take visitors down memory lane to the 1960s, when Olompali served as a commune frequented by celebrities including the Grateful Dead. 

Throughout the day there will be family-oriented interactive demonstrations of basketry, flint-knapping, adobe brick making, and blacksmithing.

Tacos, burritos and other tasty Mexican food will be available for purchase.
