On Saturday, October 15th , 2016, the City of Tustin will hold its 9th Annual Art Walk in Old Tustin from 12:00 to 5:30 pm. The sidewalks of Old Town will feature art displays, Plein Air art contest, chalk drawing contest, live music, and a festive wine tasting event hosted by the Tustin Preservation Conservancy.
While the Art Walk begins at noon, the Wine Tasting Event will start a bit later at 1 o’clock pm. We will offer plenty of cooling shade and wonderful tastes of wine and other goodies in our Wine Tasting tent located in the Waterworks parking lot at the corner of Main Street and Prospect. We will offer 5 tastes of some exceptional wines for ten dollars ($10). Look for our sign out on Main Street and join us for this event as well as the bus tours of historic Old Town Tustin. We hope to see you at the Art Walk!
Seating will be limited. You may bring your own folding chair if you wish.

560 El Camino Real, Tustin

Come meet your old town neighbors and visit for a while.
The Black Marlin invites you to stay and enjoy dinner and jazz by the Chuck Ousley Trio!
Tustin has over 400 homes and buildings listed locally as historic properties. Over 50 of them are eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places but to date, only 2 sites in Old Town Tustin have that honor and the Tustin Preservation Conservancy wants to change that!
The City of Santa Ana has 22 listed sites on the National Register of Historic Sites and Or-
ange has 15. Right now, Tustin’s two sites that are listed on the National Register are the Stevens Mansion and the Artz Building (Rutabagorz Restaurant).
We hope you will join us in the effort to make our buildings national treasures! In the next few weeks, we will begin raising funds to proceed with a project to do the research and writing to have more of our homes and buildings recognized nationally as important historic sites. We want our history, and the contribution that Tustin’s early settlers made to Orange County and California’s settlement, to be recognized on a national level. You will be hearing from us in the next few weeks about how you can help.
