History for Half Pints

California Historical Society
Apr 11, 11:00AM – 03:00PM

Join us for our monthly family program, History for Half Pints: Arts and Crafts. Help us celebrate a year of events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE), San Francisco’s 1915 world’s fair, by making PPIE admission badges with our button maker, stickers, and more! Try out a ukulele and send out a PPIE postcard to a friend or family member.

Come on by and dive into 1915 San Francisco with us!

Crafts include:

– Design your own World’s Fair button and add your own flair like stickers, ribbons, and more.

– Craft your own flag or pennant so you can parade around the Palace of Fine Arts grounds!

– Sing and Dance to fun tunes with musician and pre-school teacher, Mike Santillan! He will be playing from 12:00-12:30 PM and again 1:30-2:00 PM! Hear more of his music here.

Feb 21, 2015 to Jan 10, 2016
Palace of Fine Arts
After the fair closed, this ephemeral “city within a city” was all but erased from the landscape. The only building saved from demolition—and still standing in its original location—was the Palace of Fine Arts. Repaired in the 1930s, reconstructed in the 1960s, and recently restored, this beloved city landmark is one of architect Bernard Maybeck’s San Francisco masterworks.
