Ahwahnee Heritage Holidays 
Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite National Park
Ahwahnee Hotel
The Royal Society Jazz Orchestra will be performing once again in Yosemite Valley for the annual two-day Ahwahnee Heritage Holidays at the Ahwahnee Hotel. This is an event to remember! Experience the high-style rustic charm of the Ahwahnee Hotel nestled in the majestic Yosemite Valley, and the heart-stirring music of the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra! This rare event is co-sponsored by the Art Deco Society Of California, and together with historian Tom Bopp, they have organized many fascinating lectures, demonstrations, and musical presentations related to the early years of the last century in Yosemite. This year's special theme is Winter in Yosemite. Special presentations will show that from the start, winter activities were concocted with delightful creativity, indoors and out. Ice skating, tobogganing, ski-joring, and snowshoe-baseball drew guests outside, while ballroom dancing, musical events, and the Bracebridge Dinner enhanced the evening hours.

Music schedule — these Yosemite events are FREE to the public!:

 

  • March 2, Sunday evening, 7:00 to 10:00 PM Don Neely's Royal Society Sextet with Carla Normand in the Great Lounge at the Ahwahnee Hotel.

  • March 3, Tuesday evening, 8:00 to 11:00 PM, Royal Society Jazz Orchestra plays for the Grand Ball, Great Lounge, Ahwahnee Hotel. Includes dance performance by the DecoBelles.

Briefly, lodging packages are for the Ahwahnee Hotel or Yosemite Lodge, for either two nights or three. Prices are on web site Yosemitepark.com/heritage and include the gala dinner in the breathtaking Ahwahnee Hotel dining room.
All music, lectures, and presentations at the Heritage Holidays event at the Ahwahnee Hotel are free to the public, except for the dinner. You can camp in or outside the valley, and still attend the events free.
Singer and pianist Tom Bopp, who regularly performs at The Wawona Hotel in Yosemite will be singing with the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra and performing in the Ahwahnee Hotel Dining Room during the Gala Dinner and afterwards in the Ahwahnee Bar.

THE PARDEE PATRIOTIC PICNIC and Ice Cream Social
12:00 noon to 4:00

Mrs. Pardee’s Mellifluous Musicale with Frederick Hodges at the pianoforte
12:00 to 4:00 PM.

A charming recreation of a 1908 family Independence Day picnic and charity bazaar, with wonderful food, games and activities for young and old, prizes, and turn of the century entertainment. Period dress very strongly encouraged, and rewarded with a discount! Ladies, wear your biggest picture hat and you might win the Most Picturesque award.

 

FOURTH of JULY FUN FROM NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT!

THE PARDEE PATRIOTIC PICNIC and Stereopticon Ice Cream Social is a charming recreation of a 1909 family Independence Day picnic and charity bazaar, with wonderful food, games and activities for young and old, prizes, and turn-of-the-century entertainment, including the piano pyrotechnics of ragtime maestro Frederick Hodges.

WHEN: Saturday, July 4th, 2009 (but let's pretend that it's 1909). Open noon till 4:00 PM

WHERE: The Pardee Home Museum, 672 11th Street, Oakland, CA 94607. This Victorian island was home to the Pardee family from its completion in 1869 until the death of the last Pardee daughter in 1981, and still has its front and rear gardens, with carriage house and water tower. For this occasion, entry is through the carriage house on 12th Street.

CONTACT: Phone 510-444-2187 http://www.pardeehome.org/

WHO: The picnic is hosted by the Pardee Home Museum, and all proceeds benefit preservation of the historic house and gardens.

TICKETS: For advance reservation discounts, call 510-444-2187 or go to www.pardeehome.org. Discounts are also available for dressing old-timey-- something that would look right for 1890-1920. Ladies, wear your biggest picture hat and you might win the Most Picturesque award!

TICKET PRICES: Adults, $12; Children 5-11 years $4, under 5 free.
Adults can save $2 apiece off the at-the-door price by purchasing tickets in advance. Or save the $2 by showing up in period dress-- but only one discount apiece!
Cash or check only; sorry, no credit cards.

WHAT'S THERE: Admission includes live entertainment: the brilliant Frederick Hodges holds forth at the pianoforte, dexterously filling the air with lively turn-of-the-century rags and popular songs of the time, and accompanying Mrs. Pardee’s Mellifluous Musicale, a "Bouquet of Vocal Delights". Also included are bountiful picnic food, cold drinks, and ice cream made on the spot, plus games and activities on the lawn such as croquet, lawn tennis, volleyball and bubble-blowing. You can enter the cakewalk to win a delectable prize, and view the latest 3D pictures in a stereopticon. At the children's craft table boys and girls can create a special handmade keepsake or gift to take home. The Benevolent Bazaar (“All for a Good Cause!”) offers a plenteous assortment of toys, books, sheet music, knickknacks and who-knows-what for sale.

DIRECTIONS: From the south on 880, take the exit marked "10th and 14th Streets”, and proceed north two blocks along Castro to the museum. From San Francisco or Berkeley, turn off 580 onto 980 and take the exit marked "11th and 12th Streets." Turn left on 11th and the house is clearly visible after crossing over the freeway. Four blocks from the 12th St. BART station; AC Transit bus lines 14 and 62 provide direct service to the house on 11th and 12th Streets.
PARKING: It's a holiday! There's free parking on the street-- except on 11th Street.

Come and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the past-- and you'll enjoy your day even more knowing that you're supporting the continued preservation of one of the Bay Area's oldest historic homes.

The Great Nickelodeon Show


7:30 PM


Suggested donation $15
general admission, $12 museum members

Return to a time when movies were shown with
vaudeville acts, illustrated songs, hand-colored
slides, and lecturers in frock coats. See Illusionist
extraordinaire, Reed Kirk Rahlmann with his
notorious contortionist routine, still uncensored but
all-new, rivaling Houdini and the Great Sandow for
its outrages against the human body. See Greg Tiede
impersonating Winsor McCay in his famous
vaudeville act featuring Gertie the Dinosaur, the
world’s first cartoon superstar. See the Georges
M li s fantasy masterpiece A Trip to the Moon
performed as San Francisco originally saw it – with
narration – recreated by the Niles Essanay Thespian
Ensemble. See four lost illustrated songs. Hear
[and see!] songs accompanied by authentic handcolored
magic lantern slides and song stylings by
the inimitable Lori Leigh Gieleghem and Sean Sharp.
The entire affair will be presided over by Frederick
Hodges, who will accompany the live acts and
additional movies in the authentic nickelodeon style.
35mm Prints will be shown on our Powers
Cameragraph 6B hand-cranked projector.


Additional films include:
The Great Train Robbery (1903, Edison, handcolored, 35mm),
Suspense (1913, Rex, 35mm)
The Dancing Pig (1907, Pathe, 35mm)
The Red Spectre (1907, Pathe, hand-colored)
