Campo’s signature event, the celebration of the signing of the Articles of Capitulation¬†on January 13,¬†1847, will be commemorated this Sunday, Jan. 11. The peace treaty that became known as the Treaty of Cahuenga will be commemorated much like it was more than a century and a half ago, with a reenactment of the signing by Generals Andres Pico and John C. Fremont, followed by fiesta dancing by Carolina Russek dancers. This year they will be accompanied by the Arias Troubadours, accomplished and renowned musicians in early California period genre. The cannon will once again be fired in celebration, and the memorial wreath will be presented. Campo tacos will be available for purchase, though the event is free and all are welcome, in period costume or not. Activities begin at 12:30 p.m. and conclude at 2:15. Free parking is available in the adjacent Metro parking lot. Campo is easily accessible from the Campo/NBCUniversal metro station.
