1st Annual Tehachapi Holiday Decorating Contest

City of Tehachapi

The City of Tehachapi is happy to announce the 1st Annual Holiday Decorating Contest for both businesses and homes. City staff will begin to decorate downtown for the holiday season with snowflakes on light poles and the beautiful Christmas tree at the Historic Depot in the next few weeks.

With 2020 coming to a close we wanted to encourage everyone to set up holiday decorations for all to enjoy. The Holiday Decorating Contest will feature a total of six winners. Each council member will choose a residential winner from their district and a "Mayor's Choice" will be awarded to one business.

"It has been a year of upsets and unexpected events. The City of Tehachapi has decided to bring an event from years past to help celebrate the Christmas season. What a great idea to bring back this wonderful tradition," said Tehachapi Mayor Susan Wiggins. "I can't wait to drive around the city and enjoy all the holiday lights," said Wiggins.

The judging will take place during the week of December 14 to 16 and the winner will be announced on Thursday, December 17. To enter the contest, register with the City of Tehachapi by emailing or calling Key Budge in Community Engagement. Deadline to enter will be Monday, December 14 at noon.
