ulare is a thriving community nestled within the heart of Central California’s San Joaquin Valley. The area offers many modern conveniences to accommodate its growing base of residents and businesses, and also works hard to preserve its strong historical roots. The city has a unique heritage dating back hundreds of years, when the Native American Yokuts initially occupied the valley. Conservative estimates place the Yokuts’ population around 18,000 in 1770. This number included approximately 60 ethnically and linguistically separate tribes, who made their home around Tulare Lake and the Kaweah River. But, as American settlers began moving further west, the Yokuts were gradually displaced from their land, with only a small number left at the time of Tulare’s creation.

Transportation served as the driving force behind the founding of Tulare. The Southern Pacific Railroad chose to establish its San Joaquin Valley headquarters in the area in 1872 – giving the new settlement its name, Tulare, because of the many “tules” (Spanish for bulrushes) growing in the area’s marshy lowlands and along the shores of its lakes. The railroad depot and related buildings were erected and quickly joined by additional businesses and new residents. Virtually overnight, Tulare became the bustling center of the valley’s railroad activity.

4

The young Tulare faced its share of difficulties, with three devastating fires consuming the town in its first 14 years. The community overcame these hardships and was officially incorporated as a city in 1888. In 1891, Southern Pacific chose to relocate its valley headquarters to Bakersfield, prompting Tulare residents to turn to a new source of economic income – agriculture. With a need for an ample water supply to support the new industry, residents organized the Tulare Irrigation District in order to construct a canal system between the city and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Agriculture continues to be the area’s leading industry, with more than 250 commercial crops being produced in Tulare County each year. As a result of this booming economic generator, Tulare and its surrounding area is widely regarded as the “Agricultural Center of the World.” Tulare continues to grow and diversify with each coming year. Approximately 60,000 residents currently call Tulare home, enjoying an excellent quality of life characterized by outstanding schools and a hospital, rich cultural and entertainment outlets, attractive parks, a charming downtown and much more. As the city grows, community leaders continue to invest in its future – all the while maintaining the small-town atmosphere so many have come to cherish.

F

rom one-of-a-kind museums to much-anticipated communitywide events, there is always something exciting happening in the Tulare area.

CULTURE – Glimpse into the history of Tulare at one of the community’s unique museums. The Tulare Historical Museum presents various permanent displays that reflect the city’s early days, along with rotating art exhibits. Among the notable features at the museum is a collection of military uniforms and artifacts, and tributes to hometown Olympic Gold Medalist Bob Mathias, Sim Iness and other famous locals. The local agricultural industry is highlighted at the International Agri-Center’s Heritage Complex. Included in the complex is the Antique Farm Equipment Museum, which pays tribute to past generations of farmers and dairymen and the technology and equipment they used. Another popular attraction of the complex includes AgVentures!, an interactive children’s learning center dedicated to educating students and families on agriculture in this California region.

The city hosts its own performing arts troupe, the Encore Theatre Company, which presents several highly entertaining plays and musicals each year in its theatre at 324 S. N Street. The group also offers Encore Kids, a song and dance group that provides preshow entertainment for all Encore Theatre productions and can be seen at various community events. The arts can also be felt throughout town, thanks to the efforts of the Tulare Cultural Arts Foundation. The group commissions and maintains a number of beautiful murals and statues throughout the community depicting various important events from Tulare’s past, including the importance of the Rankin Aeronautical Academy during WWII, the contributions of local Olympic heroes Bob Mathias and Sim Iness, and the life of original Native American inhabitants.

ENTERTAINMENT & EVENTS – Spectator sports are abundant in the Tulare area. Fans fill the seats at the newly renovated Recreation Park to cheer on their Visalia Rawhide – an Advanced-A, California League affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rawhide draw support from fans throughout the region who enjoy rooting on their hometown team during 140 regular season games. At home, Tulare’s Groppetti Automotive Thunderbowl Raceway, located on the Tulare County Fairgrounds, hosts a number of exciting regional and national motorsports events on its “lightning fast” 1/3-mile clay oval. The fairgrounds also house the Jockey Club, an 8,000-square-foot satellite wagering facility, and the annual Tulare County Fair. Held every September, the Tulare County Fair features grandstand entertainment, carnival rides and games, food and concessions, competitions and concerts on the Budweiser Stage. The County Fair isn’t the only exciting event held in Tulare. The International Agri-Center hosts a year-round calendar of agricultural and community activities. Its most wellknown event is the World Ag Expo, the largest farm equipment show in the world with 1,600 exhibitors on 2.5 million square feet of exhibit space. Held in February, the expo features free seminars covering a variety of topics, cooking demonstrations and daily

agricultural tours of local dairies, citrus groves, wineries and cold storage facilities. The International Agri-Center also presents the California Antique Farm Equipment Show each April. The show is comprised of more than 900 exhibits displaying a selection of antique farm equipment, along with an antique tractor pull, daily auctions, a BBQ steak dinner and concert. In addition to these large-scale events, Tulare also offers the Concerts in the Park series at the John Phillip Sousa Memorial Bandstand in Zumwalt Park, holiday celebrations, the annual Cars on K Car Show, the Buy Tulare First Community Expo and many others. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS – The surrounding area also hosts a collection of cultural and entertainment outlets. In neighboring Visalia, Tulare residents and visitors have access to the Tulare County Museum, the Enchanted Playhouse Theatre Company, the Fox Theatre (home to the Tulare County Symphony), the Ice House Theatre (home to the Visalia Community Players) and the ImagineU Interactive Children’s Museum.
