Each year, the City of Aliso Viejo celebrates those who have contributed to the history and development of our community. This once-a-year opportunity opens the historic Aliso Viejo Ranch site to allow visitors a glimpse of the way life was long before Aliso Viejo became a city.
Since its inception, Founder's Day- A Day at the Ranch has drawn residents and visitors of all ages to enjoy the great variety of food, snack, and information booths, carnival games & rides, attractions, interactive historic exhibits, and live entertainment. As is tradition, the admission to the event is FREE, with nominal charges for food and certain activities. This year's theme is A Tribute to the Moulton Family which will commemorate the contribution and impact that the Moulton family has made to the history of Aliso Viejo and the surrounding area.
Please join us at the AV Ranch, 100 Park Avenue (across from AV Middle School) during the hours of 3:00 -8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 12 for a time of family fun! There will be a concert by the popular local band, Family Style from 6:00-8:00 p.m., so bring your beach chairs and blankets! Sorry, no pets (except for official service dogs) are allowed on the AV Ranch.
