The Gateway to One of the Greatest Sights in the World, Welcome to
The Community - Porterville, California
Known as the gateway to the Sequoia National Forest and the Sequoia
National Monument, this is the true entryway to magnificent giant
sequoias, creeks, rivers, a lake, forest with the biggest trees in
the world, world class rock climbing, places to camp and hike, hunt
and fish, and so much more.
Porterville offers an old-town charm and pioneering spirit to
visitors as well as serving as the port, if you will, as mentioned
above to the Sequoia National Forest and the Great Western Divide
Highway. Nestled up against the Sierra Nevada, Porterville is the
entryway to winter fun as there are several areas on Sequoia
National Forest in which to play in the snow. The community's
charming downtown area offers a number of attractions such as
unique boutique-style retailers, antique stores, restaurants, a
multicultural art center and beautiful historic downtown murals.
Mainstreet is also home to numerous special events, such as the
popular Iris Festival held at the end of April and the Veterans
Day/Homecoming Parade that has been held on Veterans Day for more
than 90 years. Speaking of celebrations, arguably the most popular
is the Iris Festival, which draws more than 20,000 to the city. The
festival is a celebration of Porterville's official city flower,
the purple iris. Many other events and activities are offered
throughout the community year-round, including a
community-supported country fair and various cultural offerings,
not to mention, California's longest running community theater.
