The San Luis Founders Day commemorates the 41 years since the city incorporated. The City of San Luis was founded back in 1930 after the opening of the San Luis Port of Entry I. On September 4, 1979, the Yuma County Board of Supervisors formally incorporated the City of San Luis as an official town. Today, the City of San Luis is home to more than 33,000 residents, with our population rapidly growing.
