Las Posadas

Las Posadas, a ceremonial celebration of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, has been co-sponsored by the FCAC and the Old Mission San Jose (that’s here in Fremont!) annually since 1982. Join us as we celebrate the advent season and more than 30 years of this fine tradition.

There will be a procession each night from the front porch of the Old Mission San Jose Museum building, 43300 Mission Blvd., Fremont. We will meet at 6:00 p.m. and leave for the destination by 6:15 p.m. Please dress warmly and bring a flashlight to read the song sheets.
