Centennial Picnic
Centennial Picnic
Bring folding lawn chairs or picnic blankets and make yourself comfortable for the afternoon! Non-stop entertainment and activities will make the Brea Centennial Picnic a historic gathering. On Saturday, May 20, the Brea Sports Park becomes the perfect setting for all of the outdoor fun from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. During the festivities, churches from the Brea Ministerial Association will provide hospitality with food booths featuring 1917 prices. Bring your change!
As the community gathers to celebrate a 100 year milestone, the USC Marching Trojan Band will close out the parade and kick off the afternoon. Live musical performances, acrobats, a classic car show, games and a children’s petting zoo will involve all ages in festivities. There will also be several baseball games, including a re-enactment of the legendary Babe Ruth vs. Walter Johnson Brea exhibition match-up that took place in Brea in 1924.

On stage, entertainers include Surfin’: A Tribute to the Beach Boys, plus the band, Yard Sale, a Brea Fest favorite. Tne Brea Gaslight Chorus will roam the park and add to the musical atmosphere. There will be ample photo opportunities and a classic car show. The Historical Society will gather legacy stories too.

The Brea Ministerial Association has coordinated at least fifteen different community based churches to serve food, drinks and treats as well as games, photo booth and a petting zoo. Be sure and bring your change - nickels, dimes and quarters!!!

Souvenir merchandise; shirts, caps, magnets and patches, will be available for sale. There will be a opportunity to pick up information about Brea’s unique history and alumni from Brea Olinda High School will be checking in to catch up with old friends. 

This event will also be an opportunity to purchase Angels baseball tickets for a special Brea Centennial night coming up on July 18.

Come prepared to have a successful day. There will be no on-site parking, however, as a courtesy Beckman Coulter, Inc. has invited attendees to use their lot at the northeast corner of Birch and Kraemer. The Brea Sports Park is located at 3333 East Birch Street.

• 3300 E. Birch St. (Brea Industrial Facility)
• Residential streets, where permitted
Additional public parking lots will be accessible after the parade street closure is lifted:
