Performances by  the core cast and dancers from the world famous Hemet Ramona Outdoor Play will highlight the fifth  annual “Ramona Days” - September 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Rancho Camulos Museum National Historic Landmark in Piru. Helen Hunt Jackson’s 1884 classic California novel “Ramona” will come to life at the “Home of Ramona” as we celebrate all things Ramona.

In addition to seeing vignettes from the play (11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.), visitors can watch the 1910 Mary Pickford movie filmed on location at Camulos, view unique memorabilia and historic displays, experience  living history, and attend presentations by Ramona experts such as “Ramona Memories” author Dydia DeLyser, Ramona pageant historian Phil Brigandi, and film maker Hugh Munro Neely. Learn the art of flamenco with Linda “La Matadora” Andrade and her performers. 

There will also be food, music, a used book sale, art and craft sales and demonstrations, original artwork by local artists, museum and garden tours, free children’s activities and more. Visitors are encouraged to come in costume and character for a fun experience. View the 2009 event filmed for Roger Martin’s Out and About series:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UmGbXwCMao

In order to encourage wide community participation admission fees are reasonable, with advance tickets for $5 and gate admission $10. Children aged 12 and under will be free. Advance tickets are now available in person at our gift shop, via email, phone, mail, and at will call.
