Taft, CA is a small town in the foothills of Kern County, at San Joaquin Valley's far southwestern edge. With a population of just over 9,000 residents, the town is starting to expand Taft real estate options, with planned housing and new economic development projects in the early stages of planning.
Named for the 27th president of the United States, this former one-industry oil town is growing into an attractive destination for businesses and entrepreneurs due to the cost of property and room for growth in the town.

Oilorado Days In Taft, CA
Homebuyers who choose Taft real estate are in for a special treat when it comes time to celebrate the town's birthday. Rather than celebrate annually, the city of chooses to throw a 10-day event every five years, aptly named "Oilorado" to acknowledge the men and women who first came to Taft when oil seeps were discovered in the town just after the turn of the century.
With a huge array of events and activities, Oilorado has something to offer for everyone. Included in the festivities is a parade, queen pageant, live entertainment, barbecues, dances, motorcycle races, a car show, carnival and an oilfield skills contest - and that's only to name a few!
Perhaps one of the most entertaining aspects of the town's birthday celebration is the "Whiskerino Contest", a facial hair competition. While not all men in the town are required to enter the competition, it is mandatory that they all grow some sort of facial hair for the 10-day event. Men who choose not to participate are required to buy a pass to display, or they'll risk being captured by the Oildorodo posse, and thrown in the official Oildorodo Hoosegow!
