Trek to the Nation's Christmas Tree
Visitors and locals have been making the trek to the Nation's Christmas Tree in Kings Canyon National Park every December since 1925 and now it's your turn to join them!  The ceremony takes place at the base of the General Grant Tree and honors the men and women of the Armed Forces.  December.

Taste of Downtown

Sequoia Symphony Orchestra at the Fox Theatre
For over 58 seasons the Orchestra has brought delightful music to its audiences.  The stunning and historic Fox Theatre tells a lot about the community of Visalia.  Opened in 1930 in the early days of 'talking pictures', the theatre was the grand showplace in town. Now, more than 80 years later, the Fox serves as one of the finest performing arts venues in the state.  September - April.
