Tehachapi is wired for excitement, despite its sleepy mountain town exterior. All year round, you can find community events sprinkled throughout the town. Catch a movie at one of Tehachapi’s beautiful parks — Brite Lake, Philip Marx Central Park or Meadowbrook Park — or stroll around Tehachapi’s quaint downtown district on First Fridays.
Downtown is chock-full of local artists’ work and artisan goods and places like the BeeKay Theatre keep the spirit of performance art alive in Tehachapi. While the Tehachapi Mountain Festival might draw a larger crowd, there’s enough arts and culture fun year-round that’s just as enticing.
