4th of July Hot Dog Festival



All American 4th of July Hotdog Festival


We would like to invite everyone in the Greater Tehachapi Valley to a fun-filled, patriotic July 4th celebration and Hot Dog Festival.  With the high gas prices, it's a good year to stay home and participate in the various activities going on around the city.  It will be a grand old-fashioned "All American" Fourth of July with fun for the whole family.

Bring your lawn chair and sunscreen and join in our games and the children's parade, listen to music from our own local musicians, and catch the fireworks display at the football stadium or rodeo grounds.  With 5,000 people or more attending the various activities there will be something for everyone.  There is no admission charge to watch any City-sponsored event, including the music performances in Central Park and the football stadium.

The City would like to thank all the sponsors and volunteers who help make the festival such a huge success

Welcome to Main Street Tehachapi

Our local Non-Profit organization takes its lead from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. They have developed a pioneering Main Street approach to commercial district revitalization, an innovative methodology that combines historic preservation with economic development to restore prosperity and vitality to downtowns and neighborhood business districts.

Today, the message has spread, as the Center advocates a comprehensive approach that rural and urban communities alike can use to revitalize their traditional commercial areas through historic preservation and grassroots-based economic development. It has created a network of more than 40 statewide, citywide, and countywide Main Street programs with more than 2,000 active Main Street programs nationally. Please take the time to explore our website to discover what downtown Tehachapi has to offer.
