Las Posadas, a ceremonial celebration of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem, was begun at Mission San Jose in 1982. The event is co-sponsored by Fremont Cultural Arts Council and the Mission San Jose.

Each night we process to a local business or site while singing Christmas carols. When we arrive we re-enact Joseph looking for a room at the Inn. Once the “innkeeper” invites us inside, there will be a short entertainment program provided by Fremont Cultural Arts members, and the host site will provide light refreshments.

Please note we meet on the front porch of Old Mission San Jose Museum building, 43300 Mission Blvd., Fremont, at 6 p.m. and by 6:15 p.m. we will leave for our host destination.

Dress warmly and bring a flashlight to read the song sheets.
