Enjoy events, tours and exhibits featuring the look and feel of the original 1915 Panama-California and 1916 Panama-International Expositions that created the core of the Park we all know, love and treasure.
Events will continue throughout 2015 and 2016. Some will be full-day concerts series in the Plaza de Panama and Organ Pavilion venues . Some evening-only period dance and silent-film Events . And a full 2 day park-wide event in early 2016.
