Vivir @ Mill City Museum
December 18, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Discover the rich history of winter holiday baking traditions in Minnesota and learn about the people who brought them here.
Join us in Mill City Museum’s Baking Lab to learn about Las Posadas and watch a baking demonstration at 2 pm with executive chef Jose Alarcon and pastry chef Ngia Xiong from fantastic local restaurant VIVIR in northeast Minneapolis.
Las Posadas is a religious festival celebrated in Mexico and some parts of the United States between December 16 and 24. It commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a safe refuge where Mary could give birth to the baby Jesus.
The Baking Traditions series explores holiday traditions from some of the many different cultures and nationalities that call Minneapolis home. Visitors can sample baked goods, view historic photographs and artifacts, try an activity, and take a craft to do at home.
