The City of Temecula Celebrates its 25th Anniversary with 25 Days of Fun


Save the dates to celebrate the City of Temecula’s 25th Silver Anniversary of Incorporation on December 1, 2014. 25 Days of Fun will begin on Tuesday, November 11th with Temecula’s Patriotic Salute to Veterans and conclude on Friday, December 5th with the Annual Santa’s Electric Light Parade. These commemorative events are sure to make Temecula’s Silver Anniversary shine brightly for our residents and visitors.

Temecula’s 25 Days of Fun is centered around the anniversary date of the City’s incorporation, December 1st. A 25th Anniversary Celebration will be held Monday, December 1st, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Temecula City Hall, located at 41000 Main Street in Old Town with anniversary cake and a tour of City Hall. Attendees will also receive a commemorative Temecula 25th Anniversary pin as shown here, while supplies last.

Since incorporation on December 1, 1989, Temecula has been among the fastest growing cities in the nation.

Although Temecula’s population has quadrupled since 1989, from 27,000 to over 106,000 citizens today, a popular attraction to Temecula is its simple small-town feel and community involvement, including many special events that bring the community together.
