You are invited to the Rancho’s Welcome Back Dinner on July 31st from 5:30-7:30pm. Through the past year, your continued care for our National, State, and Local Historic Landmark has helped us to keep our doors open and welcome the public to discover local history. Now, we can join together for the first time in more than a year to support our beloved Rancho.
As our first in-person gathering, the Welcome Back Dinner will allow us to dine together in the backyard, bid in a silent auction, and see the latest achievement in our Opening Doors campaign’s restoration work. We will unveil the two-story 1930s living room for an exclusive look at the FULL room in all its glory for the first time in decades.

We are living through an historic time and history has taught us that even during the most difficult times, we must protect and treasure our cultural institutions. During the past year, Rancho Los Cerritos reopened as an essential space for the mental health and well-being of our community. We were honored to offer a safe recreational outdoor space for respite during a time when there were so few other options available. We also provided virtual educational experiences so that students could still be inspired by history when they needed them most.
Thank you again for giving Rancho Los Cerritos the opportunity to reopen to the public with your efforts, your guidance, and your support. We hope the Welcome Back Dinner will be our opportunity to share more about our reopening efforts, the Opening Doors campaign, and new virtual educational programming with you.
We hope you can join us for this special gathering.
