The Kern River Valley Historical Society is celebrating over 50 years of operation! Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. The Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville, next to the Post Office, welcomes visitors to explore our rich history.

What's Happening

It will soon be time to get one of our best ambassadors ready to show off. It needs to be washed, decorated, transported, and entered into this year’s Christmas Parade. But what it needs most is you. It does its best at bringing smiles to countless children when it is carrying lots of riders. People love us when they see us on the parade route going past them, tossing out candy. Little kids’ faces light up as they sprint to grab tossed candy. It is a lot of fun for all. So, let’s put our best foot forward. Our Graham truck will be at the northern end of Lake Isabella Boulevard on Saturday morning November 30th. The Parade starts at 11AM. Please arrive by 10:30AM. Bring some hard candy to toss and a Santa Hat if you have one.
