Santa will not be at the Depot this year

Friends of the Tehachapi Depot

"Santa Claus at the Depot" has been a popular Christmas tradition in Tehachapi for a number of years welcoming parents to have their child's picture taken with Santa during December.

However, this year the Friends of the Tehachapi Depot has regrettably decided to cancel the event. We want to keep our visitors and volunteers safe during the Pandemic, and social distancing cannot be maintained under the circumstances. We are hopeful, however, that Santa will be able make a visit to our Depot next year.

In the meantime, we will open the Depot to visitors on weekends following Covid guidelines, and have our Christmas train on display as soon as Kern County returns to the red tier for children of all ages to enjoy. So we welcome all to pay a visit to our Museum.
