Don't Miss Josefina Day this Saturday | Games, performances to cure cabin fever

by Alisa Nordholt-Dean, Eiteljorg Public Programs Coordinator | Jan 22, 2014


It’s Indiana and Old Man Winter has been rearing his ugly head again. Schools were cancelled or delayed again this week, which means yet another day at home with the kids bouncing off the walls. If you’re itching to get out of the house with your family this weekend and looking for something fun and unique to do, plan an adventure to the Eiteljorg Museum for Josefina Day – a day of games, performances and art-making activities inspired by the New Mexican culture of the American Girl, Josefina. 

On Saturday, Jan. 25 from 10 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., young guests can create paper flowers, try colcha embroidery, play lotería (a Mexican game similar to bingo) and so much more! At 1:30 p.m. Anderson Ballet Folkorico will take the stage for a lively performance. Watch as the Folklorico dancers twirl across the stage in brightly colored dresses while performing traditional Mexican folk dances from various regions in Mexico.

At 3:30 p.m. eager young visitors and their grown-ups will gather in the Clowes Ballroom, anxiously awaiting the highly anticipated Josefina Doll giveaway. One lucky child will win his/her very own Josefina, American Girl Doll to take home and love forever. You need not be present to win.

But alas, if your name is not drawn out of the big red American Girl prize box, do not despair…there are no losers at the Eiteljorg Museum! A sturdy stack of consolation prizes will be given out following the doll drawing. And besides…the real winners are those who came out on a cold winter afternoon and experienced Josefina Day at the Eiteljorg and all it had to offer.

Josefina Day events and activities are included with regular museum admission.
