What is Oildorado?

Many communities hold annual celebrations to commemorate anniversaries. Taft is different. The town celebrates its birthday once every FIVE years. But what a celebration it is!


The city’s birthday bash pays homage to the hardy men and women who migrated to this dusty southwestern corner of the San Joaquin Valley when oil seeps were detected shortly after the turn of the century. Oildorado runs for 10 days, and it has something for everyone – a grand parade, melodrama, queen pageant, entertainment, barbecues, dances, civic luncheon, and much more.

Save the Date for 2020!

The next Oildorado is October 9-18, 2020.

For more information, give the Chamber a call at 661-765-2165 or email oildorado@yahoo.com.
