Period-clad actors will recreate the days of General Vallejo and Count Haraszthy at the inaugural Living History Extravaganza on Saturday, July 12, at Buena Vista Winery. The day will be filled with “Living History Performances” by re-enactors wandering the grounds telling stories and giving tours of the historic stone winery buildings and wine caves, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In addition, there will be performances of “The Story of Buena Vista,” “Medicine Man Show” and, at 2 p.m., “The Bear Flag Revolt” presented by the Bear Flag Revolt Acting Troupe, featuring Jean-Charles Boisset as Victor Proudhon.
The day’s characters include The Count, his son, Arpad, and his daughter, Ida; and General Vallejo, among many others. Guests are encouraged to join in the fun and wear period clothing.
Admission is $25 and includes a logo glass, wine, and all music and historical performances. Food will be available for purchase. A portion of the proceeds from wine sales will be donated to Sonoma/Petaluma State Historic Parks Association. 18000 Old Winery Road, Sonoma.
