At 8:30 AM on Tuesday June 15, 2021, the City of Tehachapi will hold a symbolic Grand Reopening  Ceremony for all local small businesses. 

With the governor lifting the tier system and allowing businesses to reopen without restrictions in  California on June 15, the City of Tehachapi will hold a Grand Reopening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on  Green Street in downtown. Small business owners from both the city and county areas of Tehachapi are invited to participate along with community members wanting to show support for small business.  

“Many small businesses have struggled to make it through the past year with all of the restrictions put in place by the state. We need to celebrate life returning to normal and let everyone know that Tehachapi is open. We reached out to our Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Council with our idea, and they were happy to partner with the city to mark this special occasion,” said Greg Garrett City  Manager.  

The goal is to line Green Street with as many representatives from small locally owned Tehachapi area businesses that have felt the economic impact of the past 15 months. Each business will be provided a  symbolic ribbon they will cut symbolizing their open for business again in Tehachapi. 

The City of Tehachapi invites all Tehachapi area businesses to attend and please RSVP with Key Budge by phone (661) 822-2200 X 119 or email Ribbons will be provided for each business in attendance.
