Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park
John Bidwell is well known for his influence in Chico, but did you know his influence was felt throughout California? Join us as we travel the State with John and experience his many adventures. This fun, outdoor event is a wonderful way to enjoy a summer night with the family. All ages are welcome to this free event. Bring something to sit on, as we will be on the lawn area behind the Carriage House.
Happy Bicentennial Year! We are excited about celebrating John's 200th birthday in 2019! Our Bicentennial Committee has a lot of events and community partnerships in the works for a whole year of celebration, history, and education. For more information about events click here. If you would like to participate or volunteer, please contact BMA – we would love to work with you!
