Free Family Weekend at the Train Depot

In celebration of the history, technology and adventure of railroading, the Rotary Club of Goleta will host Family Weekend at the Goleta Depot, June 15 & 16 from noon – 4:00 p.m.

The free event, which is open to all students and their families, will offer a variety of activities such as a bounce house, provided by Luna’s Jumps; lawn games; and tours of the museum that include the freight office and depot master quarters.

Train rides and hand-car rides will be offered at no cost, taking visitors on a nostalgic journey through Goleta’s history. Families also can pack a lunch and eat the designated picnic areas.

“Family Weekend is a fantastic opportunity for families to connect and create lasting memories,” said Becca Vail, museum administrator. “We are grateful to the Rotary Club of Goleta for their support and look forward to welcoming children and their families for a fun-filled weekend at the Goleta Depot.”
