10:00 AM Border Field State Park: The Human Side Celebrate archaeology month. For at least 13,000 years, human beings, plants, and animals have existed together to create the landscape known as Border Field. Archaeologists have struggled to trace the human footprints in this story and have a slowly emerging image of the Kumeyaay and other native peoples who lived in the estuary, Spanish and Mexican Era settlers, Boundary Commission, and WWI and WWII occupants of the valley. See how a gardener's trowel, carbon 14, and an 1851 article in the San Diego Herald newspaper all contributed to what we know today.

Discover the complexities of San Diego Native American history and culture from Silvas, whose ancestors were Native Americans and Californios of Del Mar. His storytelling portrays his family's life during different historical eras, going back to the "Del Mar Man," who fished for grunions 12,000 years ago to the first Spanish sailor who arrived in the 1700s.

After the missions closed in the 1800s, his family received a Mexican Land Grant and built their rancho homes along the San Dieguito River. In the early 1900s his cousin, Don Diego Alvarado, was the most recognized symbol of a gracious Del Mar Fair host.

7:30 PM Music: Acis And Galatea Join Bach Collegium San Diego for the first concert of our 15th Anniversary Season.

We are a Baroque orchestra and chorus that performs 'historically-informed' works of Bach and his contemporaries. Handel's "Acis and Galatea" was his first dramatic work in English when it premiered as a one-act masque at the Cannons estate, home of the composer's patron James Brydges, the Duke of Chandos.

"Acis and Galatea" portrays the love affair between the nymph Galatea and the shepherd Acis, whose reunion is thwarted by the monster Polyphemus.

A magnificent work from beginning to end filled with Handel's masterful dramatic storytelling led by an all-star cast of soloists.

Admission/Cost: $15 - $50
